Southwestern Turkey Chili

Arlene Mobley - Flour On My Face
Southwestern Turkey Chili is delicious and has a little spice to it from the Italian turkey sausage I used to make it. Packed full of flavors from fire roasted tomatoes, chili seasoning and southwestern style vegetables.

Mix the chili seasoning

  • Mix all the chili seasonings together in a small bowl and set aside.

Make the turkey chili

  • Remove the casing from the Italian turkey sausage and brown in a large Dutch oven, breaking it into bite size pieces. Cook the sausage until almost cooked through the center.
  • Add the olive oil, diced onion, garlic, and chili spice mix to the pan. Sauté until the onion is translucent.
  • Add the chicken broth, tomatoes, beans and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Simmer for about 30 minutes on a medium heat stirring occasionally.
  • Reduce heat to low and cook for another 30 minutes.
  • To thicken the sauce mix 2 tablespoons of cornstarch with 2 tablespoons cool water until all the lumps are gone. Add to the pot and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. The chili is done when the sauce had thickened.
  • 8 servings.
  • Serve with a dab of sour cream, a sprinkle of cheddar cheese and some crunchy tortilla triangles.
