Kat’s Turkey Chili

  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • salt & pepper, to taste
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 packet McCormick “Hot” chili seasoning
  • 1 tsp chipotle chili powder
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 Tbsp minced onion
  • 2 cans Brooks chili beans (I use Hot and Hot & Spicy if I can find them)
  • 1/2 cup Ragu Robusto! 6-cheese spaghetti sauce
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 heaping forkful minced garlic
  • 1 tsp cumin
  1. Brown the turkey in a pot using cooking spray.  Season with salt and pepper as you are browning.
  2. Once the turkey is cooked through, try to make sure it is chopped into small pieces with your spatula.  Add the water, seasoning packet, chipotle chili powder, first chili powder, and minced onion.  Cover and allow to simmer, stirring occasionally, for at least 15 minutes.
  3. Add in chili beans, spaghetti sauce, garlic, cumin, and second chili powder and stir to combine. (I also used to add in Cajun seasoning, but can’t find the brand that tasted good anymore)  Bring to a boil.
  4. Cover and cook on low for at least 30 minutes, then turn off heat and let cool on stove.  Once cool, put in refrigerator and let sit.  Chili is best if you wait for it to sit overnight so the flavors really mesh and enhance each other.
  5. Serve in any way you want 🙂  I love to eat it with macaroni pasta (chili mac), on a hot dog, or just with some grated cheese and tortilla chips.  Yum!
