Number of Servings: 10


    1 large onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
    2 large cloves garlic, minced (about 2 tsp.)
    2 tsp. olive oil
    1 lb. ground turkey
    1 28-oz can crushed tomatoes in tomato puree
    1 15.5 oz. can white kidney beans
    2 jalapeño peppers, finely chopped
    1 cup green pepper, chopped
    1 cup red pepper, chopped
    1 cup carrots, diced
    1 cup celery, diced
    5 tsp. brown sugar (or more to taste)
    5 tsp. mild chili powder
    1 tsp. ground cumin
    1 tbs. oregano leaves, crumbled
    1/2 tsp. salt
    1/4 tsp. ground cloves


In a large, deep, heavy skillet, sauté the onion and garlic in olive oil until the onion is tender. Add the meat, browning it and stirring to break up large pieces. Darin off any fat that accumulates in the pan. Add the tomatoes in purée, and all the seasonings. Heat the mixture until bubbly, reduce the heat, cover, and simmer for about 15 minutes. Add the beans and other vegetables, and simmer, covered, for 30-45 minutes, or until carrots are softened.

Makes about ten 1-cup servings.

    Very Good
    Good chili! Not spicy enough for me though. I added some extra chili and some hot sauce. I also used diced tomatoes instead of crushed. I'll be making this again! - 9/12/10
