Ron's Turkey Chili a la Claiborne
Recipe Courtesy Ron Claiborne
Are you looking for a filling winter meal? This hearty chili is just the right blend of spice, vegetables and turkey, and its sure to leave your family satisfied.
In a large stewpot, soften the onions and bell peppers in olive oil over medium heat. In a separate skillet, cook the ground turkey. Once the turkey is browned (and no pink remains), drain the liquid and add the turkey to the stewpot. Add in the stewed tomatoes, the tomato paste, a cup of water, and the contents of the 2 boxes of chili seasonings (leave out some of the salt if you prefer - I only use 1 of the 2 salt packets). Add in the beer and cocoa, the carrots, corn, peas and beans. Bring to a boil, then lower heat and simmer for an hour+ over low heat. Add in jalapenos and spicy chili peppers to taste.
Serve with shredded cheese, diced purple onion, sour cream and tortilla chips.
