Chipotle Turkey Chili

I simply cannot have enough chili recipes for my slow cooker. This particular recipe is made with ground turkey, but ground beef works too. Don’t be afraid of the chipotle peppers. They’ll give this recipe a lot of flavor with very little heat.

Serves 4

1 pound ground turkey
  Extra virgin olive oil
  Salt and pepper
1 onion, chopped
1 small can chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (you’ll only need 2 peppers and a little sauce!)
1 (14 ounce) can diced tomatoes
1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
2 cups chicken stock
1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
3 tablespoons chili powder
cups frozen corn
  Monterey Jack cheese for garnish, shredded
  Sour cream for garnish (optional)
  Cilantro for garnish, chopped (optional)
In a large skillet, over medium-high heat, brown the ground turkey in a drizzle of olive oil. Once browned, add a big pinch of salt and pepper and transfer to your slow cooker. Next, layer the onion, two chipotle peppers (or a few more for extra heat) along with a little adobo sauce, tomatoes, tomato paste, stock, beans, and chili powder. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or on high for 3 to 4 hours. About 20 minutes before you’re ready to serve, remove the lid and stir in the corn. Continue on high for 20 minutes. Garnish with cheese, sour cream, and cilantro. c
