Turkey Chili

READY IN: 1hr 50mins
Recipe by Cookie16

This is based on Chili con Carne recipe in "The New York Times Cookbook" by Craig Claiborne. I've subbed turkey for the beef and tweaked it a bit. You can add up to 2 cans of red or even black beans. You can use more cayenne if you like more heat. Only one big pot needed. This freezes well so try doubling it (in a big pot).
