My SECRET Turkey Chili Recipe!

One of my favorite meals to indulge in on a cold, rainy day is a big warm bowl of homemade chili. It seems like everyone these days raves about their “secret” chili recipe – well here’s mine! It’s the perfect combination of spicy, smoky, and sweet – JUST the way I like it!
So, what’s my secret? (I’m soo glad you asked!) To give my turkey chili that extra boost, I add fire roasted tomatoes, smoked paprika, a combination of black and pinto beans, honey, and chicken broth!

I like to top my chili with finely grated cheddar cheese, sour cream, red onions, avocado and cilantro. I feel like it takes the chili to a completely new level.

This recipe is so simple, and so delicious. Try it out and let me know what you think!

Ingredients:
3 TBS Butter

1 TBS minced garlic
1 Yellow Onion, chopped
1 Red Bell Pepper, chopped
1 lb Ground Turkey

1 TBS Honey
1 1/2 tsp Onion Powder
1 1/2 tsp Garlic Salt
1/2 tsp fine ground black pepper
2 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp smoked paprika
Pinch of Red Chili Flakes
1 14/5 oz can of Chicken Broth
2 1/2 Cups Cooked Pinto Beans
1 1/2 Cups Cooked Black Beans

This is what your chili will look like after you add the chicken broth – Don’t worry! It needs to boil and then simmer, then liquid will reduce down.

Bring to a boil and allow to soft boil for about 5 minutes. Simmer on medium low for 30-40 minutes. Serve.
