OK, maybe I’m a little biased here.
After all, it’s my chili recipe. BUT, you can make it your own too. (And it’s healthy)
First you start out with a pot and coat the bottom of it with olive oil. Set your stove burner to medium. Now, get your spice foundation in order. Use as much or as little as you want:
Coat the bottom of the pot with Chopped onion (or onion powder)
Coat the bottom of your pot with these spices, and then add a spoonful of tomato paste. Stir in the paste with the spices.
Next, break up a pound of lean turkey meat (or whatever kind of meat you want to use) stir in the meat until it’s brown. I also like to add venison and/or Italian sausage to the turkey meat. My Wife doesn’t like beans, so when I make some for her I substitute the beans for the Italian Sausage.
Take your favorite flavored salsa (mild, medium, spicy, doesn’t matter. Yesterday I used peach/mango salsa and it was amazing), pour the whole jar in the pot, and add another layer of spices (as much or as little as you desire). During this phase, I put in more chili powder, pepper, and onions. Stir, and let it simmer for 5 minutes.
Next, your going to take a can of red kidney beans, and drain half of the juice. Insert the beans, as well as a can of chopped tomatoes. I like using a can of tomatoes because it gives it some liquid base. You can use freshly cut tomatoes if you want. Add diced red or yellow potatoes, as well as a can of green chilies. STIR everything, while also adding another batch of chili powder, salt, pepper, garlic, and a couple spoonfuls of Fischer Wieser Charred Pineapple Bourbon Sauce. I also like to add Old Bay Hot Sauce too.
Heat for 15 minutes, and then let it stand for 10 minutes to cool off.
Again, you can add or take away ingredients to make it your own.
