Superbowl parties are always fun, even for those of us who are not huge sports fans. With the hilarious commercials, and great halftime performances, not to mention ALL the food - everyone can enjoy the game!
Unfortunately, it can be extremely hard to resist all of the greasy, fried foods that are served at Superbowl parties, so I want to share this awesome Turkey Chili recipe from that I discovered from Hungry Girl.
- 1 lb. raw lean ground turkey
- One 29-oz. can tomato sauce
- One 14.5-oz. can diced tomatoes, drained
- One 15-oz. can chili beans (pinto beans in chili sauce), undrained
- One 15-oz. can red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
- 3/4 cup canned sweet corn, drained
- 4 - 5 canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, chopped, sauce reserved
- 2 bell peppers (in different colors), chopped
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 2 carrots, chopped
- 2 tsp. minced garlic
- 2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tsp. chili powder
- 1 tsp. ground cumin
- 1/2 oz. VERY dark chocolate (70%+ cacao), broken into small pieces
- salt, to taste
- Optional topping: fat-free sour cream
Bring a large pan sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat on the stove. Add turkey and spread it around in the pan to break it up a bit. Cook and crumble until meat is brown and cooked through, about 6 minutes. Drain any fat or liquid, and then transfer turkey to the crock pot.
Add all other ingredients except for the chocolate to the crock pot. Add 1 tbsp. adobo sauce (from the canned chipotles). Mix well to combine.
Cover and cook on high for 2 hours, and then reduce heat to low and cook for an additional 3 hours. (OR cover and cook on low for 6 - 7 hours straight.)
Add chocolate and stir until pieces melt and disappear into chili. Cover and cook for 1 hour longer on low. Add salt to taste. If you like, top each serving with a little sour cream.
