Turkey Chili

I’ve been making this dish for a long time and have never written it down or taken a photo.  I’m not sure why but I will correct that today.  I make my chili slightly warm then I add chopped jalapeno peppers and lots of hot sauce to satisfy my desire for heat.

Ingredients:

½ yellow onion, chopped

1/3 red pepper, chopped

1/8 jalapeno, chopped

½ Anaheim chili, chopped

½ zucchini, chopped

1 tsp. black pepper, ground

1 tbsp. olive oil

1 lb. turkey, ground

5 tbsp. All-purpose spice mixture

1 can chopped tomatoes

1 can black beans, drained

1 tbsp. shredded cheese, Mexican blend

1 avocado, chopped

Cilantro to taste

Hot sauce, I like the rooster sauce

Directions:

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet and add the onion and all the peppers.  Cook until the onions are soft.  Add the zucchini and black pepper and cook stirring often for a couple of minutes.  Remove to a serving bowl.  Add the turkey to the skillet and cook until no longer pink.  Add the all-purpose spice mix and combine with the turkey.  Add the chopped tomatoes and the black bean.  Stir to combine.  Add back the onions and peppers and combine with the turkey.  Let the chili come to a boil, turn the heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes.  Serve with avocado, shredded cheese and hot sauce if desired.
