Crowd Pleasing Turkey Chili

January 03, 2019

This is our "go-to" chili recipe.  The prep is pretty quick and easy and then you just let it simmer.  Plus, it is just as easy to adjust the spiciness level to your liking by adjusting the amount of jalapeño seeds and other spices.

Active Prep Time: ~15-20  minutes

Cook Time:  ~60-90 minutes

Total:  ~75 minutes - 2 hours

Serves 10 people


  • 3 pounds Organic Ground Turkey;
  • ~ 2 tablespoon olive oil;
  • 3 red onions (chopped);
  • 3-4 jalapeños (chopped; discard seeds for less spicy, the more seeds you keep, the spicier);
  • 8 garlic cloves (chopped);
  • 1/3 cup chili powder;
  • 3 tablespoons ground cumin;
  • 1.5 teaspoons sweet paprika (regular paprika is fine if you don't have sweet);
  • 42 oz. canned diced tomatoes (with juice);
  • 3 15.24 oz. cans of kidney beans (drained);
  • 21 oz. vegetable (or beef) broth;
  • Sour cream;

  1. Heat olive oil in large pot over medium-high heat;
  2. Add red onions and sauté until brown (5-6 minutes);
  3. Add jalapeños and garlic and sauté for about 1 more minute;
  4. Add ground turkey and cook for about 5 minutes or until brown (be sure to break up the ground turkey as you cook);
  5. Add chili powder, cumin and paprika and mix in thoroughly;
  6. Add tomatoes with juices, kidney beans and broth and bring to a boil;
  7. Reduce heat and simmer for at least 45 minutes, stirring occasionally (you can simmer for even longer, the goal in this step is to get the flavors to blend and to thicken up the entire chili);Greensbury turkey chili simmering
