Indian Summer Turkey Chili

This is the time of year where some people may experience an 'Indian Summer', so I decided to give this Rachael Ray recipe a try. I love chili and this looked like a nice mix of flavors for a fun variation.

recipe Indian Summer Turkey Chili

You will need...

ingredients Indian Summer Turkey Chili
Red peppers, ground turkey (or chicken), grill seasoning, cumin, tomato sauce, chili powder, onion, corn, BBQ sauce, worcestershire sauce, beer and hot sauce. This is seriously like a line up of some of my most favorite things.

Lets get cooking!

Chop up your onion.

red pepper
Chop your red peppers.

Measure out the beer, and enjoy the rest of the bottle while you cook. I used a Shiner bock from Texas.

Measure out your spices.

Measure your corn and get everything ready to go in the pot because now it is time to cook.

turkey cooking
Brown up your turkey in a little bit of oil. Now, had I been reading the recipe closely, I would have added my spices to the turkey also. But I screwed up and forgot, but guess what, it still turned out totally ok.

veggies in
Add in those gorgeous peppers and onions. Let them cook for 10 minutes or so.

Add in the beer and use your spoon to scrape all the tasty bits off the bottom of the pan. This is also called deglazing.

Add in the rest of the ingredients and give it a stir. Let this bubble away for about 10 minutes and you are ready to eat!

Indian Summer Turkey Chili
This is one of the best chilis I have tried, honest. I thought for sure chili without garlic would not be good, but I was wrong. All the sweet and savory combos really make for a super tasty and fun chili.
