Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Add the onion, garlic, salt, chili powder, and oregano and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 3 minutes.
  3. Stir in the tomato paste and the chipotle chile and sauce; cook 1 minute more.
  4. Add the turkey, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, and cook until the meat loses its raw color, about 3 minutes.
  5. Add the beer and simmer until reduced by about half, about 8 minutes.
  6. Add the tomatoes—crushing them through your fingers into the skillet—along with their juices and the beans; bring to a boil.
  7. Cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until thick, about 10 minutes.
  8. Ladle the chili into bowls and serve with the garnishes of your choice.
  9. 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.
