Fall Sunday Chili

30 Oct

Today feels like a superb day to make a big bowl of hearty and comforting chili! And looking at the rest of the week’s weather..it’s very appropriate! I usually make my chili with ground beef, but I wanted to experiment with new ingredients, so I chose ground turkey instead. I also like my chili to be hearty and thick, not soup-like, so I add tons of beans, tomatoes, and seasonings to give it that extra kick :).


  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 cup chopped red onion
  • 1 poblano pepper, seeds removed and chopped
  • 1 lb. ground turkey
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 (14 ounce) can chicken broth
  • 1 (15.5 ounce) can white beans
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • salt & pepper


  • combine garlic, onion, pepper, and turkey in a pot with a little oil. cook until turkey is no longer pink ~6 minutes.
  • add the rest of the ingredients, bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cook for ~10 minutes.

Walah!  It’s the easiest chili recipe and it’ll still taste it’s been cooking all day in a slow cooker. Serve over a baked or sweet potato, with some toasted garlic bread, or the Cincinnati two-way (over spaghetti)!
