Adam's Healthy Turkey Chili can use any meat you want. I have used ground boar, turkey, bison, chicken and beef. Entirely up to you! This recipe is so dang easy and ends up being so dang good. I use a caste iron pot and put a little oil at the bottom. The directions are below the ingredient list. Fresh peppers are the best for seasoning and in this case I did use a jar of Tabasco Chili starter given to me from a kind viewer. You don't have to use that, but it did turn out just fantastic and Tamera said it's the best chili she's ever had. If you don't use that..add a small jar of tomato sauce instead.


  • 1 jar Tabasco Chili Starter

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 medium yellow or white onion -diced

  • 2 shallots diced

  • 1 pound of lean ground turkey, beef, bison or boar

  • 3 tablespoons fresh chopped garlic

  • 4 peppers finely chopped

  • 2 jalapeños finely chopped

  • 2 tablespoons ground cumin

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder

  • 2 tablespoons garlic salt

  • 1/2 tablespoon ground black pepper

  • 1 cup of beer

  • 2 (15 oz.) cans petite diced tomatoes

  • 1 (16 oz.) can red kidney beans, drained

  • 1 (16 oz.) can pinto beans, drained

  • 1 tablespoon coriander

  • 1 tablespoon oregano

  • shredded cheese, diced avocado, sour cream...for garnish


  • In a large pot add oil and onions and shallots and cook for about 3 mins

  • Then add ground meat and a little oil and cook to brown and combine

  • Add in remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered 45-60 minutes or until chili has reached desired thickness.

  • Top with cheddar cheese, green onions, cilantro or other favorite toppings.


There are a ton of variations!

  • Vegetables: Potatoes, carrots, celery, mushrooms, bell peppers or zucchini

  • Smokey Taste: Adobe sauce oor paprika or a liquid smoke for a smoky taste.

  • Any Broth: Don’t have beef broth? Chicken or even water or any broth works. Or more beer.

  • Sugar: Sugar adds a bit of sweetness. Cocoa powder will also add subtle hint of sweetness with a savory taste of chocolate.
