Quick and easy, a delicious pot of chili



  • Olive oil
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 yellow pepper, diced
  • 2 (15 ounce) cans tomato sauce
  • 2 (15 ounce) cans diced tomatoes
  • 2 (15 ounce) cans black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 (15 ounce) cans red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 (4 ounce) cans diced green chilies
  • 1 (15.25 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • Chicken stock
  • 2 tablespoons Wondra flour


  1. Add 1-2 tablespoons olive oil to a frying pan and brown the ground turkey, breaking it into small pieces as you turn and stir
  2. Season with salt and pepper. (Go easy on the salt. The canned ingredients will be salty and you can always add more. That being said, I like to add a little salt to each layer of flavor as I’m preparing a dish)
  3. Move the turkey to a Dutch oven.
  4. Add 1-2 tablespoons olive oil the same frying pan and sautéed the onions and peppers, seasoning lightly with salt and pepper
  5. Add the onion and peppers to the ditch oven
  6. Add the tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, beans, green chilies, corn, chili powder, and cumin
  7. Stir, add enough chicken stock to almost cover the ingredients and bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 30-45 minutes
  8. Sprinkle with Wondra flour and stir it in to thicken the broth


Top with shredded cheese, sour cream, or sliced green onions
