Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add turkey, onion, green bell pepper, and garlic; cook and stir until turkey is browned and onion is translucent, about 5 minutes.

  • Stir tomatoes, celery, cumin, chili powder, bay leaf, and basil into the pot. Pour in water; cover and simmer until celery is tender and chili has reached desired thickness, 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in navy beans and lima beans; cook until heated through, 5 to 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Cook's Notes:

The cumin in this recipe is what makes it smoky and rich and delicious. I don't recommend omitting it.

If serving over rice, make chili thicker.

Great recipe! The only reason I am giving it a 4 stars instead of 5 is because the liquid from the beans need added and not drained. It needs some heat too but that is easy to add to suit your own tastes. The recipe calls for ground turkey but it just so happens I made this a few days after Thanksgiving so cubed turkey breast is what I used in place of the ground turkey breast. I will add another can of beans when I make this again. Other than that this is perfect! Read More
