Ground Turkey Chili

On cold winter days (like today) a thick hearty chili is just the ticket!  I love making this whenever the weather turns too cold to go outside.  This is a very flexible recipe, you can substitute ground beef for the turkey or go with stew meat.  For the beans I usually use whatever is in the pantry.  I also like my chili a bit spicy, so I add a tablespoon or two of the fermented peppers that we made last fall.  Have fun with this recipe and i hope that you enjoy it as much as I do.

1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
1 Cup Onion- chopped
1 Tablespoon Garlic- minced
1/4 Cup Green Pepper- chopped
1/4 Cup Serrano Pepper- chopped
1 Jalapeno Pepper- Chopped
1 lb Ground Turkey
28 oz Crushed  Tomatoes
16 oz can Kidney Beans- drained
16 oz can Navy Beans- drained
1 Tablespoon Chili Powder
1 Tablespoon Sugar
1 Tablespoon Chipotle powder
2 Cups Chicken Stock
1/2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
1 1/2 Teaspoons Italian Seasoning

Add olive oil and onion and ground turkey to large pot.  Saute until onion is translucent and meat is browned.  Add peppers and garlic, saute an additional 5 min.  Add remaining ingredients. Simmer for 1 hour. Serve with sour cream and a little shredded cheese.
