I have never made chili in my life nor have I ever eaten chili in my life because I have a thing against beans. But, I have working very hard to start eating black beans and I do not mind them now. This recipe is super easy, healthy and of course delicious. :)
Ingredients: 1 Teaspoon Olive Oil 3 Garlic Cloves; Minced 1 Sweet Onion; Chopped 1 Red Pepper; Diced 1 Tablespoons Chili Powder 1 Dash Chipotle Chili Pepper 1 Teaspoon Cumin 1 Teaspoon Oregano 1/2 Pound Lean Ground Turkey 1 - 8 oz Can Tomato Sauce 2 Small Tomatoes; Diced 1 Whole Chipotle Peppers In Adobo Sauce; Minced 1/2 Cup Of Water 12 oz Frozen Sweet Corn 15 oz Black Beans; Rinsed And Drained Salt And Pepper; To Taste
Optional For Serving: Greek Yogurt Avocado Tortilla chips
Directions: Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium high heat. Add in garlic, onions and red bell pepper and saute for 5-7 minutes or until onions and bell pepper until soften.
Next add in ground turkey, making sure to break up the lumps; cook until turkey is no longer pink. Add the chili powder, cumin, oregano; stir, and cook another minute.
Add in tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, chipotle pepper, water, corn, and black beans. Add a little salt and pepper. If you want your chili to be more spicy add in more chipotle peppers. I do not like my food very spicy so I made this pretty mild.
Bring chili to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for at least an hour. Be sure to stir occasionally.
Taste the chili and adjust seasonings as necessary. This recipe makes about 4 servings. Serve with greek yogurt, avocado,and tortilla chips.
Our favorite chips to use are Way Better Snacks Sprouted Sweet Potato Chips. The only ingredients are stone ground non-GMO whole corn, sunflower oil, sweet potato, sprouted seed and grain blend (sprouted quinoa, sprouted chia seed), and pure sea salt. They are super good too!!
