Cook Time 40 minutes
Servings 8


  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 medium onion diced
  • 1 medium green pepper diced
  • 2 cups chicken broth (or water)
  • 1 14.5 oz can Hunt's Diced Tomatoes
  • 1 10 oz can Rotel Original Diced Tomatoes with Chilis
  • 1 16 oz can dark red kidney beans (drained and rinsed)
  • 1 16 oz can light red kidney beans (drained and rinsed)
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 1/2  tablespoons chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • plain Greek yogurt optional
  • sliced green onion optional


  1. Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat.
  2. Sauté onions, green pepper and garlic until tender.

  3. Place turkey in the pot, and cook until evenly brown.
  4. Add broth, tomatoes, kidney beans and all spices. Bring to a boil.
  5. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 15 minutes.
  6. Using a potato masher, gently mash ingredients to break up the vegetables and beans. (Doing so will help the chili to thicken)

  7. Simmer an additional 15 minutes.

  8. Top with plain Greek yogurt and sliced onion before serving, if desired.

Recipe Notes

Chili will thicken as it sits. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
