Easy, Fast, and great tasting chili recipe!

Who loves chili? I DO!! 

I made this yesterday for a boy scout Blue and Gold dinner, and it went quick!  I've had family and friends request the recipe, as well. So- why keep this yummy dish to myself, when I can post it here for others to discover? It's a recipe I've been using for years, which I believe came from the South Beach Diet.

I ALWAYS double, and sometimes triple, this recipe to feed more than 4 people.

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ large yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • ½ tablespoon chili powder with ½ tablespoon adobo sauce
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 can (7.5 oz) kidney beans
  • 1 can (7.5 oz) black beans
  • 1 can (7.5 oz) pinto beans
  • 1 can (7.25 oz) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 4 tablespoons tomato paste
  1. Mix chipotle and adobo sauce with diced tomatoes, and puree in blender or food processor. 
  2. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. 
  3. Add onion and garlic, saute about 5 minutes, stirring often to prevent garlic from burning. 
  4. Add the ground turkey and brown, breaking up the larger pieces, along with oregano and cumin.
  5. Add tomato paste and stir to mix well with turkey
  6. Follow with the chipotle tomato mixture, all the beans, and, finally, the chicken broth. 
  7. Mix the chili well and bring to a boil for just a minute, then reduce to a simmer.
  8.  Let simmer covered for at 20 minutes, but I go for 30 minutes in a covered crockpot. 
  9. Adjust seasoning, or thin to taste and serve.
