Turkey Chili

In prep for the big game this weekend, here's a great tasting chili recipe made with turkey. The recipe I'm posting below calls for either Wegmans brand or name brand items specifically, but I think it would taste the same if you used other products.

**BLOGGER DISCLOSURE** I didn't get anything for free from Wegmans however I did get a coupon in the mail for $2 off the ground turkey and $1 off the chicken stock used in this recipe. It should be noted that this coupon was delivered to everyone in the area, so no special treatment here!***

2 pkgs (8 oz each) Food You Feel Good About Cleaned & Cut Diced Green Peppers 2 green peppers, diced
2 pkgs (8 oz each) Food You Feel Good About Cleaned & Cut Chopped Onions
2 Tbsp McCormick Gourmet Collection Mexican-Style Chili Powder

Heat oil in large stockpot on MEDIUM-HIGH until oil faintly smokes. Add ground turkey. Crumble and sear until lightly browned, about 5 min.

Add garlic, peppers, and onions to browned ground turkey. Stir in chili powder, salt, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, bay leaves, cloves, and cumin.

Add tomatoes and stock. Bring to simmer; add beans. Continue to simmer, uncovered, on MEDIUM-LOW about 45 min, stirring occasionally. Discard bay leaves. Ladle chili into warmed bowls; serve.

Chef's Notes

I've never had chili with cloves in it and I think the next time I make it, I won't add them. After I ate the chili, all I could taste all day was cloves, which isn't exactly pleasant. I also added my secret ingredient to the chili:

unsweetened dark chocolate. I think it adds more texture and depth to the broth.The chili was also not very spicy. Next time I might add a jalapeno, or additional chili powder to kick it up a notch.
