Cozy Drunken Turkey Chili: A Hearty Super Bowl Favorite











Discover the warmth and richness of a cozy, hearty bowl of Drunken Turkey Chili. Perfect for Super Bowl festivities or any chilly evening, this recipe combines the lean goodness of turkey with the bold flavors of beer and spices.


Step 1: Preparation of Ingredients

Start by prepping your veggies. Chop the onion, bell pepper, garlic, and jalapenos. Get your canned items ready by draining the tomatoes and rinsing the black beans. This prep work ensures a swift cooking process, making it a breeze to create this comforting dish.
Pro Tip: Wearing gloves while chopping jalapenos can save you from a spicy surprise later!

Step 2: Cooking the Chili

Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat, careful not to let it smoke. Add the prepped onion, bell pepper, garlic, and jalapenos sautéing until soft, about 5 minutes. Then, introduce the spices, coating the vegetables evenly before adding the ground turkey. Break the turkey into small pieces as it cooks. Once the turkey is just cooked through, add the drained tomatoes, black beans, beer, and soy sauce, stirring well. Lastly, mix in the chopped cilantro for a fresh flavor boost.
Pro Tip: To deepen the flavors, let the chili simmer for at least 20 minutes.

Step 3: Final Touches and Serving

After letting the chili simmer covered on low heat for about 5-10 minutes, turn off the heat and allow it to rest for another 15 minutes. This resting period lets flavors meld together beautifully. Serve this luscious chili in bowls, and feel free to top with low-fat sour cream, avocado slices, grated cheese, and a sprinkle of chopped green onions. Don’t forget the side of tortilla chips for dunking!
Pro Tip: Chili tastes even better the next day, so make enough for leftovers!
