Turkey Chili

If you think of turkey chili as less robust than the beefy original, think again. Our version starts with an ancho-tomato puree for deep flavor.

Cook's Notes

This recipe can be made up to three days ahead -- in fact, it gets better the longer it sits. Make sure to buy the precooked variety of smoked turkey for this recipe, which requires only brief simmering to heat through.

    Love cooking with smoked turkey!! Started as a child when I would visit my Grandmother in Ok. This recipe is close to one I have made for years, minus the smk. turk. I will be visiting my poultry man very soon!! I have found, making chili with ground turk. or chix., adding 70% chocolate from a bar really adds a layer of richness. Everyone I have served agrees! Not sure about choco with the smoked meat, I will let you know. When I add cheese or sour cream, they are vegan as I can not do dairy, I like the Daiya brand for cheese, Better Than...for sour crm. Thanks for taking the time to read this! Have a Great remainder of your day!!raf
