2 tsp olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium onion, chopped
1 lb ground turkey*
2 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp ground cinnamon
¼-1 tsp ground red pepper**
¼-1 tsp chili powder**
1 large can (28 oz) crushed tomatoes
2 tbsp tomato paste
1½ cups fresh corn or 1 can (12 oz) corn

1 medium red bell pepper, chopped
1 jalapeño, chopped (optional)
1 tsp salt
½ tsp ground black pepper
¼ cup chopped cilantro

*You can use textured vegetable protein (TVP) in place of turkey to make this a vegetarian chili.

**For those who want a spicier chili, add more red pepper and chili powder a little at a time, tasting to avoid overly spicing the dish.

Directions


Heat the oil in a large pot over a medium-high heat.

Add the garlic and onion. Cook, stirring frequently, for 1 to 2 minutes or until softened.

Add the ground turkey. Brown the turkey in the pot, being careful not to separate the turkey into small bits.

Add the cumin, cinnamon, red pepper and chili powder.

Add the tomatoes and bring the chili to a simmer, then add the tomato paste and stir to incorporate.

Add the corn, beans, bell pepper and jalapeño, if desired.

Return the chili to a simmer, then remove from the heat.

Garnish with cilantro.
