- 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
- 5 garlic cloves, chopped
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 2 teaspoons chili powder
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 tablespoon tomato paste
- 1 chipotle chile in adobo, coarsely chopped, with 1 tablespoon sauce
- 1 lb ground turkey
- 1 (12 ounce) mexican lager beer
- 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can whole canned tomatoes, with their juice
- 1 (15 1/2 ounce) can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
- sliced scallions (optional) or fresh cilantro stems (optional) or avocados (optional) or sour cream (optional) or grated monterey jack cheese (optional) or tortilla chips, for garnish (optional)
- Heat the olive oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat.
- Add the onion, garlic, salt, chili powder, and oregano and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 3 minutes.
- Stir in the tomato paste and the chipotle chile and sauce; cook 1 minute more.
- Add the turkey, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, and cook until the meat loses its raw color, about 3 minutes.
- Add the beer and simmer until reduced by about half, about 8 minutes.
- Add the tomatoes—crushing them through your fingers into the skillet—along with their juices and the beans; bring to a boil.
- Cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until thick, about 10 minutes.
- Ladle the chili into bowls and serve with the garnishes of your choice.
- Cook's Note: A skillet's larger surface area reduces sauces faster than simmering in a saucepan.
The recipe says a tablespoon of kosher salt, which was way too salty for us. I use a teaspoon of Kosher Salt and it is perfect. This chili has been a hit with everyone who has eaten it with us. Good and good for you!
Great Taste and Super Easy.. The only thing I changed was I used Blue Moon Summer Ale beer since that is what I had on hand.. The kids and DH enjoyed with shredded cheese, sour cream and chips.. I on the other hand could not splurge- going by the nutrition facts this is a 9 point meal for those of you on WW's :)
Made this for a Winter Warm-Up dinner with friends - It was a HIT! Cornbread goes nicely.
