WINTER SOUP | Easy turkey chili

easy turkey chili

Soup has become a staple lunch and dinner dish for me, in my never ending attempt to try and stay warm during this chilly winter in DC. This time, I took a stab at making homemade chili :)

I have to say, although it’s a super simple recipe, it’s quite tasty and delicious! Especially when paired with jalapeño cornbread. Just a few ingredients and BAM! A wonderful, filling, and warm meal to get you through the cold, dark days.

Ingredients (makes about 5 servings):
– 1 pound ground turkey
– 1 can diced tomatoes (I used a kind that already had chili seasoning included) – 14.5 ounces
​- 1 can kidney beans, drained and rinsed – 15.5 ounces
– 1 small diced yellow onion
– 1/2 diced bell pepper​
– 1 2/3 cup water
– 3 tablespoons tomato paste
– 1 teaspoon chili power (if you used the seasoned canned tomatoes, more if you didn’t)
– 1 tablespoon olive oil
– A few splashes of hot sauce (or a lot of splashes, depending on how spicy you like it)

Step 1: Over medium-high heat, warm up the olive oil in a pan and add in the onions. Let those cook for a few minutes.

Step 2: Add the turkey to the pan and cook until there are no traces of pink left. Crumble the turkey chunks as they cook into smaller pieces.

Step 3: Transfer the onions and turkey mixture to a medium pot and add in the tomatoes, drained beans, dices pepper, tomato paste, water, and chili power.

Step 4: Bring to a boil, splash in some hot sauce, then reduce heat to a simmer for about 15-20 minutes. This will thicken up the soup.

Step 5: Pour into a bowl and top with sour cream and cheddar cheese. Take a big bite and feel instantly warmer :)
