Incredible, perfectly spiced healthy turkey chili made with plenty of spices, kidney beans, tomatoes, onion and corn. This version is simply the BEST!

Prep time     : 10 mins

Servings      : 6, about 1 1/2 cups each.


·         2 teaspoons olive oil
·         1 yellow onion, chopped
·         3 garlic cloves, minced
·         1 medium red bell pepper, chopped
·         1 pound extra lean ground turkey or chicken (99%)
·         4 tablespoons chili powder
·         2 teaspoons ground cumin
·         1 teaspoon dried oregano
·         1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
·         1/2 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
·         1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes or crushed tomatoes

·         2 (15 oz) cans dark red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
·         1 (15 oz) can sweet corn, rinsed and drained

1.  Place oil in a large pot and place over medium high heat. Add in onion, garlic and red pepper and saute for 5-7 minutes, stirring frequently. Next add in ground turkey and break up the meat; cooking until no longer pink. Next add in chili powder, cumin, oregano, cayenne pepper and salt; stir for about 20 seconds.
2.  Next add in tomatoes, chicken broth, kidney beans and corn. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 30-45 minutes or until chili thickens and flavors come together. Taste and adjust seasonings and salt as necessary. Garnish with anything you'd like.

·   I've gotten a few comments about the chili being too spicy -- I used McCormick's Chili Powder in this recipe, which is very mild. If you're using something else, I would start with 2-3 tablespoons instead of 4.
·    To make this recipe in the slow cooker: Reduce the chicken broth to 1/2 cup and brown the turkey and onions before adding to the slow cooker. This is an awesome tailgating or football party recipe!
