Turkey Chili

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).

  • Reduce heat and simmer, covered until the sauce is as thick as desired.

    Tasty and easy recipe. I made a half portion with the following: pink beans (what I had - entire can), two chopped 1/4 turkey burger patties for the meat, used chicken stock instead of water, used diced tomatoes that had a zesty jalapeño style (one 15 oz can), a small can of corn, and added cilantro. I served mine over baby spinach leaves with cucumbers, a handful of croûtons, and a teaspoon of grated Parmesan cheese. This recipe is easy and hard to mess up. Looking forward to finishing the leftovers and will definitely do again

    We just tried this recipe on a ski weekend and the group LOVED this chili! It came out a bit runny, so maybe add less water. We also used diced tomatoes and an extra can of beans. My friend added barley to the leftovers and loved that too.
