I'm just straight chillin'

  • 3 tablespoons paprika

  • 3 tablespoons. oregano

  • 2 tablespoons cumin

  • 2 tablespoons salt

  • 1.5 tablespoon pepper

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

  • ½ red pepper, chopped

  • ½ yellow pepper, chopped

  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped

  • 2 jalapenos (or serranos for extra spice), finely chopped

  • 5 garlic cloves, finely chopped or minced

  • 2 lbs ground turkey preferably 93% lean

  • 2 cups chicken broth or stock

  • 2 14.5 ounce cans diced tomatoes

  • 1 6-ounce can tomato paste

  • 2 15-ounce cans of beans (I like tri-blend - kidney, pinto, and black)


Optional Toppings:

  • Sour cream OR avocado spread

  • Grated cheddar cheese

  • Chopped scallion

  • Fresh cilantro

  • Pickled jalapenos

  1. In a small bowl, combine paprika, chili powder, oregano, cumin, salt, and pepper. In a large pot, add olive oil, saute onions and peppers over medium-high heat until soft but not burnt (about 7 minutes). Add jalapenos and garlic, saute for another minute. Add the turkey and saute until mostly browned. Add spice blend and stir until combined.

  2. Add broth, diced tomato cans with juices, tomato paste, and beans (without juices) to the pot bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until chili thickens and flavors blend stirring occasionally for about 45 minutes.

  3. Ladle into bowls. Add the toppings as desired.
