Decadent Turkey Chili

A healthy alternative to traditional chili, this dish will delight your senses with a rich selection of flavoring components, including beer and chocolate, which bring out the most robust flavors in chili.


  • ¼ cup canola oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped
  • 1½ lbs. ground turkey breast
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup chili powder
  • ¼ cup whole-wheat flour
  • 2 (12 oz.) bottles dark beer
  • 1 oz. dark chocolate, chopped
  • 2 (15 oz.) cans no-salt-added diced tomatoes
  • 2 (15 oz.) cans no-salt-added kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 cups corn
  • 1¼ tsp. salt

  1. Heat the oil in a large, heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat. Add the onions and pepper and sauté until they soften and brown (8-10 minutes).

  3. Add garlic, chili powder, and flour. Cook, stirring, until flour smells nutty (1 minute).
