Simple Turkey (or Beef) Chili
Cook Time: 2 hours
Make Again: Yes
Recipe Source: Cook's Illustrated (January 2008)
Recipe Source: Best Light Recipes
CI originally did this recipe with beef several years ago (or more than several.) The turkey recipe was developed for the Best Light cookbook after that and was the same, but used turkey and less oil basically.
I can't believe I haven't added this recipe to the blog yet, because I make it at least a few times every year. It is so simple and exactly the kind of chili I like. It reminds me of the chili I had a kid and it hits the spot on cool days.
With the turkey version they suggest adding the 2nd pound of ground turkey for the last hour of cooking so it stays more clumpy. Sometimes I do that, sometimes I don't. It seems fine when I don't, but the texture it a little smoother I guess.
This is a go to recipe for when I don't have time to cook, but I am at home and can have this cook a while.
