This is a great healthy chili with a nice kick from the Chipotle Chilies. For those that are not that familiar with chipotles, they are smoked jalapenos that come in a can in the Mexican section as Chipotle in Adobo sauce. I keep them handy by draining them, freezing them on a cookie sheet and then storing in a plastic bag in the freezer. They are much easier to handle and chop frozen!

How to Make Chipotle Turkey and Black Bean Chili


  1. Heat oil in deep pot or dutch oven and saute onions, green peppers and chipotles until onions are translucent, about 5-7 minutes. Add turkey and cook through, stirring frequently. Add in seasonings (chili powder, cumin, cayenne, salt and pepper) and combine. Add in beans and tomatoes and taste (sometimes it needs more salt). Cover and simmer on low for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Uncover and simmer for an additional 15 minutes to thicken. Top with any combination of sour cream, green onions and cheese. I usually serve this with a side of warm, soft corn tortillas or tortilla chips as well.
