DIRECTIONS

  • Heat a large soup pot on medium heat. Add oil, making sure the pot is not so hot that the oil smokes. Saute the onions and peppers for a minute or two, then add the minced garlic. Soften the garlic but don't let it burn.
  • Add ground turkey to the pot. Stir frequently to brown the turkey throughout. When the meat is no longer pink, carefully ladle off as much of the fat as possible. Dispose of the discarded fat by placing it in an unwanted container (such as an empty can) and freeze it - don't pour it down the drain.
  • Add tomatoes with their juices. Add remaining ingredients and stir gently. Simmer, uncovered, at least 20 minutes. Taste for seasonings, and adjust if necessary. Serve with a dollop of sour cream and a sprig of fresh cilantro.
  • If your family prefers a mildly spiced chili, omit the chipotle. For a spicier chili, add your favorite chili sauce (Tabasco, Cholula, etc.) at the table.
