Pulled Turkey Chipotle Chili Recipe

A Reader Recipe: Pulled Turkey Chipotle Chili

POPSUGAR Fitness reader For the Love of Fiber shared this turkey chili recipe in our Healthy Recipe group.

Chili

After Thanksgiving, my good friend, a girl who literally didn't know how to boil water, sent me this recipe, using her turkey leftovers. I loved the idea of pulled turkey and her fiberlicious add-ins, so had to feature it.

See the recipe after the break!

Ingredients

* = good source of fiber

  • 3 tablespoons virgin coconut oil or palm oil (or extra virgin olive oil if you have neither)
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 5  cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 ½ tsp. Celtic sea salt
  • 2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 2 tbsp. tomato paste
  • 1 chipotle chile in adobo, coarsely chopped, with 1 tsp. sauce
  • 2 cups leftover turkey, pulled apart and cut into bite size pieces
  • 1 (12-ounce) dark beer
  • 4 cups crushed or coarsely chopped tomatoes, with their juice
  • 2 cups kidney beans
  • 2 cups black beans
  • 2 cups frozen corn kernels
  • ¼ cup flax seed meal

Prep

1. Heat the oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion, garlic, salt, chili powder, and oregano and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 3 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste and the chipotle chile and sauce; cook about 1 minute more.

2. Add the turkey and beer and simmer until reduced by about half, about 8 minutes. Add the tomatoes and the beans and corn; bring to a boil. Add flax.
