Why I Love This Recipe

This is a great chili if you're tired of "standard" chilis with beef, beans, onions and peppers. I got this recipe from my mom but I'm not sure where she found it.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 T vegetable oil
2 med onions, chopped
1 1/2 t oregano
1 1/2 t cumin
1 1/2 lb ground turkey
1/8 c chili powder (or up to 1/4 c, depending on preferance)
2 bay leaves
1 T unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 t salt
1/4 t cinnamon
1 28oz can tomatoes (diced or whole, if whole chop roughly)
3 c beef broth (can substitute chicken broth)
1 8oz can tomato sauce
3 15oz cans small white beans, rinsed and drained


In a large pot, saute onions in vegetable oil for about 10 min. Add oregano and cumin; saute for about 1 min. Add turkey and brown. Add all ingredients except the beans; Simmer for 45 minutes. Rinse and drain beans. Add to pot and simmer for 10 more minutes. Crackers, cheese, and sour cream are good garnishes, as is cilantro.
