Turkey Chili


1 yellow pepper, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
1 pound ground turkey
1 medium-size red onion, chopped
2 tablespoons chili powder or to taste
1 tablespoon seasoning salt
1 tablespoon garlic powder or 3 cloves, crushed
1-1/2 tablespoon olive oil
2 12-ounce cans of black beans
1 20 ounce can of kidney beans
1 20 ounce can of pinto beans
1 20 ounce can tomato sauce
1 cup water

Recipe Directions

Caramelize the onions in the olive or canola oil with the garlic. Add the turkey (or beef for higher fat content) and seasoning salt. Brown. Just before the meat is all browned, add the peppers. Continue browning the meat until no pink is seen. Add the beans with the juices, tomato sauce, and water. Stir together and bring to a near boil. Add in chili powder. Reduce the heat to a simmer. Cover the pot and let the Turkey Chili cook for four to five hours.

Recipe Note

If you want more of a kick, add 1-tablespoon cayenne pepper.

Serving Suggestion
