The last chili recipe you’ll ever need.

I originally started with this recipe: http://www.chilirecipes.org/worldsbestchili.html and modified it to suit my tastes and shorten the prep and cooking time. Total prep and cook time is approx 2hrs.

Ingredients:
2/3 rds Cup Water
3 splashes of Vinegar
1/2 a bag of frozen chopped bell pepper
1/2 a bag of frozen chopped onion
4 Jalapeno Peppers, Chopped
3 Cans Beans, Your Choice [Pinto, Black, Red, White, Kidney] rinsed/drained
2 Large Cans Diced Tomatoes, Drained
3 heaping tsp of Minced Garlic (from a jar or fresh)
2.5lbs of Lean Ground Turkey (93/7)
4 Tablespoons Cup Ground Cumin
4 Tablespoons Chili Powder
6 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
1 Tablespoon Salt
1 Tablespoon Hot Madras Curry Powder
1 Tablespoon Paprika
1 Tablespoon Oregano
1 Tablespoon Black Pepper
3 Bay Leaves

Put a 6qt Dutch oven on medium high-ish heat. Add the water, vinegar, onion, garlic, and bell pepper. Grab your jalapenos and chop one up and taste it. I find jalapenos vary greatly in heat; if it’s really hot I only add 1-1.5, medium 2, mild all 4. Add your chopped jalapenos and cover. Meanwhile, take your ground turkey and a wire colander and under cold water rinse a pound at a time. It should turn amorphous but you don’t want it to be complete mush, you’re just rinsing a good deal of the collagen off. Drain as much of the water off as you can in the colander then put the ground turkey in a large, nonstick, frying pan and brown it. Draining the excess water helps speed the browning process. Add the browned meat to the dutch oven along with one can of diced tomatoes, and two of the cans of beans. Add spices stirring every two table spoons. Add the last can of tomatoes and beans, stir, bring to a light boil, cover and simmer on low heat for an hour (longer if you like). If desired, 1/2 a bag frozen, or 1 can of corn can be added during last 30min. If chili is too thin before serving, mix a couple tablespoons of four or cornstarch with cold water, stir the mixture in the chili and cook until desired thickness. Serve with shedded cheese, sour cream, and tortilla chips.
