We are excited to share a recipe with you for Shredded Turkey Chili!
Shredded Turkey Chili
This recipe was brought to life one night when we have some leftover shredded turkey and bell peppers and I needed something interesting for dinner. The Del Monte Petite Cut Diced Tomatoes with Chipotle Chilies added a nice spice and smokiness that really brought the rest of the ingredients together.
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 small onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 large bell pepper, diced (I used half of a green and half of a yellow. Have fun with it!)
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp chili powder
2 cups shredded turkey
1 14.5 oz can Del Monte Petite Cut Diced Tomatoes with Chipotle Chilies, drained
1 14.5 oz can stewed tomatoes
salt and pepper to taste
sour cream (optional)
green onions, chopped (optional)
Heat olive oil in a medium pot over medium heat.
Add onion, garlic, peppers, cumin, chili powder, and salt and pepper. Allow to cook about 5 -7 minutes or until onions are translucent. Add turkey and warm until it shreds easily as you stir it around. Add the tomatoes with chipotle and cook for 3-4 minutes.
While the rest of the chili cooks, puree the stewed tomatoes in a food processor. Pour the contents into the chili. Allow to simmer for another 10 minutes. Serve with sour cream, green onions, rice, and/or corn chips and enjoy!
