Cold winter days call for hot soup. When it’s freezing outside I love a good bowl of soup or chili. Mmmm, chili! My husband and I really love this Turkey Chili I make and it’s very easy to make. Plus it’s really filling.
I started by heating my oil in a large pan (I use my wok). I sauted my onion, garlic, and diced red peppers over medium high heat for about 7 minutes. After that I added in ground turkey and cooked it until it was no longer pink. I also added in chili powder, cumin, oregano, cayenne pepper, and salt.
In addition to all that goodness I added tomatoes, chicken broth, kidney beans, and corn and cooked it for about 30 minutes. It will make the house smell so good! For me, that’s the hardest part, waiting the 30 minutes for it to finish. You can use part of the time to get your toppings together.
Some of our favorite toppings are saltines, Fritos, sour cream, avocado, and cheese.
It’s that easy!
