Chipotle Turkey Chili Recipe

Chipotle Turkey Chili Recipe

I combined a few chili recipes for this spicy low-fat variety. It's great with crusty rolls or baked tortilla chips. -Christie Ladd of Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Cook: 1-1/2 hours YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 can (7 ounces) chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 1-1/4 pounds lean ground turkey
  • 3 medium carrots, chopped
  • 1 medium green pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 can (28 ounces) crushed tomatoes
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 can (16 ounces) kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (15 ounces) garbanzo beans or chickpeas, rinsed and drained

Directions

  • 1. Drain chipotle peppers; set aside 2 tablespoons adobo sauce. Seed and chop three peppers; set aside. (Save remaining peppers and sauce for another use.)
  • 2. In a large Dutch oven or soup kettle coated with cooking spray, cook the turkey, carrots, green pepper, onion, garlic and reserved peppers over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain if necessary. Stir in the tomatoes, broth, tomato sauce, oregano, basil, chili powder, cumin and reserved adobo sauce. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 1 hour.
  • 3. Stir in the beans. Cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until heated through. Yield: 8 servings.
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
