2 Tbs. olive oil
1 medium onion, diced
3 lbs. lean ground turkey
1 14 oz. jar salsa
2 14 oz. cans crushed tomatoes
2 14 oz. cans diced tomatoes
1½ cups chicken broth (preferably homemade stock or lower sodium)
2 14 oz. cans corn
2 14 oz. cans black beans
2 14 oz. cans kidney beans
4 Tbs. unsalted butter, cut into pieces
2 tsp. chili powder


Cook the onions and the turkey in the olive oil until the onions are soft and the turkey is cooked through.  Add the rest of the ingredients and cook on medium-low, stirring occasionally for approximately 2 hours, or until all of the ingredients are well-blended.



We have substituted Tabasco (approximately 10 drops, but adjust depending on how spicy you want it) and 1 tsp. cayenne pepper for the chili powder that we forgot to buy.

Feel free to use less butter or eliminate it entirely if you want healthier chili.

If you have more than 2 hours to cook the chili, you can cook for 3-4 hours at a simmer.

Try using other healthy meats like bison!
