Recipe: Smoky Chipotle Turkey Chili

Smoky Chipotle Turkey Chili

THIS! This is now my FAVOURITE chili of ALLLLL TIME.  

I've always been a lover of smoky chipotle flavours.  So adding it to chili is a sure-fire win in my books! If you're not fond of spice...beware this one has a kick--but most things with chipotle peppers do so now you know.  :)

healthy smoky chipotle pepper turkey chili recipe


About 12 1.5-cup servings. Feel free to cut the ingredients in half to make half of the servings.


2 pounds ground turkey
1 large diced onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 large diced green bell pepper
1 large diced red bell pepper
1 28 oz can diced tomatoes
1 cup chunky salsa
3.5 oz (½ can) chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, chopped (use gloves or you'll be sorry!!!)
2 cans corn kernels
2 (15 ounce) cans black beans, rinsed and drained
1 large pack sliced fresh mushrooms
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 tablespoon crushed red pepper flakes
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
1 teaspoon salt

  1. Heat a large, non-stick pot over medium-high heat and stir in the ground turkey, onion, garlic, green pepper, and red pepper. 
  2. Cook and stir until the turkey is crumbly, evenly-browned, and no longer pink, about 10 minutes. 
  3. Pour in the tomatoes, salsa, chipotle peppers (including adobo sauce), corn, mushrooms, and black beans. 
  4. Season with lime juice, cumin, red pepper flakes, chili powder, and cilantro. 
  5. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the flavors develop, 1 to 3 hours.
