Coconut Curry Chili


"The coconut, curry, and mango chutney really put the flavor in this one. I put this together one night with what I had, and loved the results. It tastes better the next day, just like most chili. This freezes well. Seriously, you have to try it. Serve by itself, with rice, and/or with naan bread."

  1. Break the ground turkey into small pieces into a large skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir the turkey, continuing to break it into smaller pieces, until completely browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain as much grease as possible from the turkey.
  2. Combine tomato soup, water, and minced garlic in a large pot; bring to a boil. Add the turkey to the pot and return the mixture to a boil and reduce heat to medium-low. Stir chickpeas, red kidney beans, carrot, chutney, curry powder, onion powder, salt, and black pepper through the turkey mixture; bring to a simmer, place a cover on the pot, and cook until the chickpeas are tender, about 15 minutes.
  3. Stir 1/4 cup coconut milk through the chili, return cover to the pot, and simmer another 15 minutes. Pour the remaining 1/4 cup coconut milk into the chili, stir, and simmer 30 minutes more.


  • Cook's Note:
  • You could add diced potatoes or thinly sliced mango, as well. Taste and add whatever spices you think it may need. I like a lot of curry powder and coconut milk, so I usually add more. I prefer to let it simmer an additional 30 minutes beyond what is written here.

This was too sweet for my taste. I used hot curry powder thinking it would balance the sweetness but that didn't work so well. This is more like a curry for gringos recipe. Won't be making this ...

Really great taste with a twist. I didn't have mango and I left it out and it was still exceptional. Next time I will do it in the slow cooker.

Yum. I added fresh red peppers and basil from the garden. Served over basmati rice steamed in coconut milk. Mine was a tad sweet. Will try with fresh mango instead next time instead of the chutn...
