turkey chili

Spiciness is a huge calorie-burner, and combined with lean turkey, this turkey chili is a nice n healthy start to 2013. Super filling, but healthy at the same time, this chili is mostly a hands-off waiting game.

Ingredients (makes 6 servings):
2 tbs olive oil
1 onion, chopped
5 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 green onion, chopped
1/4 head of cauliflower, chopped
Salt & pepper
1 lb ground turkey
1 tbs chili powder
1 tsp red pepper flakes
2 tsp paprika
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp oregano
Salt & pepper
1 tbs hot chocolate mix
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
14.5 oz can crushed tomatoes
8 oz tomato sauce
8 oz canned beans
1/3 cup beer

1. In a large nonstick pot or french oven over medium heat, add olive oil, onion, garlic, green onion & cauliflower with a sprinkling of salt & pepper. Stir and let cook for 7 minutes, or until onion is translucent.

2. Add ground turkey, cover, and cook for an additional 9 minutes, until turkey is no longer pink.

3. Meanwhile prepare spice mix of chili powder, red pepper flakes, paprika, cumin, oregano, hot chocolate mix, and another sprinkling of salt & pepper. Pour into the pot, mix to coat.

4. Add Worcestershire sauce, crushed tomatoes, tomato sauce, canned beans, and beer. Partially cover and let simmer for 50 minutes, stirring occasionally.


5. Serve warm (but warning: this will be very hot when finished) with buttermilk cornbread!
