A different kind of chili

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown the meat in a skillet and drain. Saute the peppers and onions in canola oil in a separate pot. Add spices to the peppers and onions after they've cooked a bit.
  2. Don't over do the veggies - they'll cook when it's all mixed.
  3. Add tomatoes, water, red wine, bay leaves and meat to the pot & let simmer for a couple of hours if you can.
  4. When you eat it, add some shredded cheddar to the top.

I found the recipe to be tasty, but found myself making adjustments. The wine & bay leaves were nice inclusions. I made this in a crockpot & it turned out more soup like. I had omitted the water & drained the beans. At the end I added tomato paste to thicken it up a bit. Than you for sharing the recipe!

Delish! We love turkey chili & now we love this one! The black beans were a nice change from the usual kidney beans. I especially liked the depth the red wine provided. I had intended to make it exactly as written but it turned out that I needed a recipe to cook itself yesterday. So I browned the turkey, drained it & then put it in the crock pot along with all the other ingredients, stirred & let it cook. At about 3 hours I checked & stirred but thought that it looked more like a clear broth soup than a chili so I went ahead & added a 15 oz can of tomato sauce. At 5 hours we couldn't wait any longer to dig in! The end result was absolutely delicious! I served it with a side of Bread Machine Honey Whole Wheat Challah. We'll be making this again! Thanks, City_Gurl! Made & enjoyed for Fall 2009 Pick A Chef. You've been adopted! :)
