Turkey Chili Yummyness

One of the easiest best dinners and party dishes for Winter.



So it’s finally raining in Los Angeles and that means Winter to me and winter means Turkey Chili. I made this last night and it’s the best, yummyest, hits the spot, cozy din-din. Also great for a party. Make a chili bar and have everyone create their bowl… cheese, onions, sour cream, cilantro, chips, jalapenos… and Beer! Yummm.

Turkey Chili

1.5 pounds of ground dark turkey

1 onion

1 can of corn

1 can of black beans

1 can of chopped tomatoes

½ can of tomato paste

ground cumin

chili powder


a couple cloves of garlic, chopped

½ cup of water or chicken broth

In a large pot, sauté chopped onion

Add ground turkey and separate while browning

Add tomatoes, corn and black beans – draining the corn but leaving ½ the liquid of the beans

Add ½ can of tomato paste and ½ cup of water and STIR

Add 2 tablespoons of cumin and 1 tablespoon of chili powder and salt to taste

Stir and simmer for 30-40 minutes

If it needs it I add more cumin and or chili powder

To make it a vegetarian version – you can chop a red pepper and some zucchini into the onions to begin … and add a can of pinto beans to the corn and black beans instead of turkey.

Serve with shredded cheese mixture (jack and cheddar) and corn chips – yummm
