Because Its Fall

Fall is finally here and even though it doesn’t really feel like it (especially here in miami). I decided to make some turkey chili to cozy up with. So turn up your a/c really cold, snuggle up in your blanket and enjoy this turkey chili!

Turkey Chili


Turkey Chili


  • 2 1/2lbs Ground Turkey
  • 3 tbsp Oil/Butter
  • 2 small Sweet Onions, chopped
  • 4 Garlic Cloves, chopped
  • 2 Chipotle Peppers, chopped
  • 3 oz. Tomato Paste
  • 2 tbsp Chili Powder
  • 1 tbsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tbsp Dried Thyme
  • 1 tbsp Salt
  • 1 tbsp Onion Powder
  • 3/4 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 2 tbsp Worcester Sauce
  • 2 14oz can Dice Tomatoes
  • 1/2 bottle of Beer
  • 2 16oz can of Kidney Beans
  • Cilantro (optional toppings)
  • Cheddar Cheese (optional toppings)
  • Sour Cream (optional toppings)


  2. Start off by heating up a large pot to medium/high heat with your oil. I used a dutch oven (essential kitchen item) but any large pot should work. Toss in your onions and garlic. Cook and stir until translucent about 5-7 minutes.
  3. Add in your chipotle, stir around for 1 minute. Add in all your seasonings including the brown sugar and worcester sauce. Cook and stir around for 3 minutes.
  4. Add your tomato paste. Cook and stir for 5 minutes.
  5. Drop in your ground turkey. Use your stirring utensil to break up the meat and stir everything together. Cook until turkey is cooked and crumble like texture. About 5-7 minutes.
  6. Add in your dice tomatoes, beans and beer. Mix real good.
  7. Bring to a boil, cover, turn heat low and simmer for 15 minutes.
  8. Serve with some fresh cilantro, sour cream and cheddar cheese. Enjoy!

*This also freezes well for any leftovers
