Low Fat Turkey Chili

This is a super easy and healthy turkey chili recipe. I’m a big fan of comfort food. The Martha Stewart MACARONI AND CHEESE recipe I made for Thanksgiving is still one of my favorites, but this recipe is definitely an old standby for when I’m in the mood for yummy comfort food. This chili has great flavor from the added dark beer and plenty of kick from the peppers!

Turkey Chili recipe in the second part of the post…


  • 2 cans of Diced Tomatoes
  • 2 cans of Crushed Tomatoes
  • 3 cans of red kidney beans
  • 1 whole small onion
  • 3 cloves of Garlic
  • 1 large Chipotle Pepper
  • 1 tablespoon of the sauce from the Chipotle peppers
  • 2 tablespoons of canned green peppers
  • 2 Jalapeno peppers, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 ½ tablespons salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 package of ground Turkey, about 2 lbs.
  • Half a large container of Chicken Stock
  • 1 Guiness beer


Heat a bit of oil in the bottom of large sauce or stock pot. Lightly brown turkey until it is nice and brown, but not totally cooked. Dump remaining ingredients into the pot and bring to a boil. Lower heat, cover and simmer for 45 minutes or until beans are tender and liquid has reduced and thickened. If liquid is not reducing, uncover and continue to simmer for an additional 10 minutes. Serve with diced onions, sour cream, or cheese!

    This recipe looks great! The only problem is that i just dont know what a “package” or a “large container” really is(we have so many options in the supermarket!!)…i guess i’ll just have to experiment :)

    Thanks for comment permabadass…I should’ve clarified… I meant a 2 pound package of turkey and 1 quart container of stock….although these amounts can be modified depending on your preference.
