I'm sure to chili purists, this recipe is pure blasphemy, but it's finally cold here, and I needed something to warm me up today.  Scrounging through the freezer and pantry, I realized that I had everything to sort of throw together chili.  Using this recipe as inspiration, I let it simmer on the stove pretty much all afternoon, until I could no longer take it and had to have some.  I also made some mini-bread bowls and had an icy glass of cider from the orchard up the street.  Perfect for this blustery fall day.



Turkey Chili

Olive oil to coat pan (about 2 tbsp)
1 medium onion, small dice
1 red bell pepper, small dice
2 stalks celery, small dice
4 cloves garlic, minced
3 Ancho peppers, soaked in boiling water, then chopped (remove seeds for less heat)
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp coriander
2 Tbsp chili powder
tsp cayenne (more or less depending on desired heat)
1.3 lbs ground turkey (that’s what the container of Shady Brook Farms ground turkey is that I get – more or less is fine)
cup corn (fresh if possible, frozen if not)
2 – 14 oz cans Great Northern beans
1 – 14 oz can Garbanzo beans
1 – 14 oz can diced tomatoes
1 – 32 oz carton chicken stock
cup TVP (textured vegetable protein), optional
Fresh cilantro, chopped
Salt and Pepper, to taste
Various garnishes (shredded cheese, sliced scallions, sour cream, salsa, etc.)

In a large pot, heat oil over medium heat.  Sweat onion, pepper, and celery until translucent, about 10 minutes.  Add garlic and Ancho peppers and cook for an additional 2 or 3 minutes.  Add spices and stir to evenly distribute in the pot.

Break ground turkey into bite sized pieces and add to pot.  Cook until no longer pink, about 8-10 minutes.

Add corn, beans, tomatoes, and chicken stock.  Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer uncovered until chili reaches desired thickness.  Add TVP to thicken if desired (you could also use barley for this). 

Stir in fresh cilantro, and adjust salt and pepper to taste.  Serve with optional garnishes.

Once you have it together in the pot, you really don't need to do much.  I just gave it a stir here and there to feel like I was doing something, but that was pretty much it.  I got quite a bit of other things done around the house today, surprisingly.

I can't wait to taste this again tomorrow, because I have a feeling that the flavors are going to get even better.  It was subtly sweet from the corn, onions, and red pepper, but then at the same time subtly spicy from the peppers and a bit smokey from the cumin and coriander.  I did go back and add a bit more cayenne, because hubby and I like significant heat in our chili.

That looks fabulous (and I'm starving now, so I really shouldn't be looking at the food section of craftster). I may try it this winter at some point!

I might have missed it, but is this single serving or does it serve more than one?

Oh man, this makes much more than 1 serving!  If I remember correctly, it filled 4 of those bread bowls (I'd say about a cup and a half each), and then not-quite-filled a 5.2 cup container for leftovers (I just checked the bottom of the container), so it makes about 2.75 quarts total.

do you think this could perform well in a slow cooker? or do you think the meat would have to be browned outside of the slow cooker and then everything could be added to the croc and let it sit for hours?

i don't have too much experience with my slow cooker, so can you brown meat in a slow cooker? does it get hot enough?

I make regular beef chili in the slow cooker, but I do brown the meat first.  I've always done that to eliminate most of the grease, though. I personally would brown the meat to make sure it's fully cooked, but I'm not 100% sure it's necessary.  I'd double check through some websearches if I were you.

If I recall correctly, I used a no-knead recipe for this.  Form 1 single batch into 4 smaller balls and bake on a baking sheet. Cut off the top and hollow out the middle. Here's another recipe that I've used and love.

Whoaoaoa - seeing those bread bowls make me feel like I've been thinking in the box about bread bowls.
Thanks! I foresee some intense food coma occurring in this house in the near future.

Looks delicious. I'll make a vegetarian version of this one (by just leaving out the turkey and maybe adding something like paneer in it).
