Homemade Turkey Chili


A warm, comforting bowl made with spices, tomatoes, ground turkey and plenty of beans!


  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1 cup diced white or yellow onion
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 12 tablespoons chili powder (add more for a spicier chili)
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 28 ounce can no-salt-added diced tomatoes
  • 1 quart light sodium tomato soup
  • 1 15 1/2 ounce can no-salt-added red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 15 1/2 pound can no-salt-added black beans, drained and rinsed

  1. Set a large pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the ground turkey and cook, stirring to crumble, until browned. Drain excess fat. Add onion and red pepper and cook 5-8 minutes, or until softened. Add garlic and cook 1 minute, then add the spices, stirring and cooking an additional minute. Pour in the diced tomatoes, the tomato soup and the beans and stir to combine. Bring to a low boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover and cook at least 30 minutes and up to 1 hour.
  2. Season with salt to taste (if necessary) and serve topped with shredded cheese, diced onion, Greek yogurt or any of your favorite chili mix-ins!
