Super Bowl (or anytime) chili

Here’s an adaptation of Rachael Ray’s feed-a-neighbor turkey chili. I made a few changes as I omitted the corn and pumped up some of the vegetables.. see below:


  • 2 Tablespoons of Olive Oil
  • 2 pounds ground turkey, 97% or 99% lean (I used 99%)
  • salt & coarse black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons/palmfuls of chili powder
  • 1 tablespoons/palmfuls of ground coriander
  • 1 tablespoon/palmful of ground cumin
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 red bell peppers, diced
  • 1 jalapeño or spicy pepper of your choice, chopped finely
  • 2 medium zucchinis, chopped
  • 1 can black beans, drained & rinsed
  • 1 can red kidney beans, drained & rinsed
  • 1 28 ounce can of chopped tomatoes
  • 2 cups of low-sodium chicken or turkey stockchili

Heat a deep pot or dutch oven (I’m partial to a good enameled cast iron) over medium-high heat. Add oil to the pot. Add ground turkey and brown and crumble until the turkey turns white. Add salt, pepper, chili powder, cumin, and coriander, and stir to mix into the turkey. Add onions, peppers, garlic, zucchini and jalapeño (or other spicy pepper) and cook 8-10 minutes to soften. Add the tomatoes, beans and stock, bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer, partially covered, for 30-40 minutes. Check for salt & pepper- re-season if necessary.

I make mine a day ahead, and let it chill out overnight in the fridge to let the flavors really develop.

Approximately 8 servings at 355 calories per serving.
