It’s a good day for heart warming chili. I love this turkey chili recipe! It has just the right spice for me and the turkey keeps it on the lighter side. And it’s always a crowd pleaser at winter potlucks
2 tbsp olive oil
4 lbs lean ground turkey
6 garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped
1 1/2 lbs Spanish onions, peeled and chopped
1/3 cup chili powder
1 tbsp ground cumin
1 1/2 tsp ground allspice
1 1/2 ground cinnamon
1 1/2 ground coriander
1 1/2 tsp oregano
2 cans (14 oz each) diced tomatoes
1 red pepper, cut into strips
1 yellow pepper, cut into strips
1 cup low sodium chicken stock
2 tbsp wine vinegar
