Turkey Chorizo Chili – Recipe!

Print Friendly

I know I preach about keeping a well stocked pantry – well…..preach is a strong word, how about recommend?  However, many of you are either single or a family of two, which makes it a little challenging to be motivated to keep a well stocked entity in your kitchen.  Look no further – this Sponsored Post is for you!  Turkey Chili is one of those things most people enjoy, especially if you are entertaining, or if it dips below 65 degrees.

Chili is a super simple preparation of onions, meat and tomatoes of some kind, which makes it ideal in a pinch, because you can have a meaty pot at full simmer in no time flat. I like turkey chili, not for the convenience, but for it’s one-bowl deliciousness, and I have found a product that I can get behind because it is loaded with the right spice blend.  Chorizo Seasonings Turkey Sausage from Jennie O is a nice mix of chili powder, paprika and dried chilies, plus some additional spices, that adds a good balance of flavor to any chili recipe. What makes it even better, especially for the no-pantry people, is that you don’t need to go out and buy any additional dried herbs or spices –  they’re all inside.

So, if you are chorizo fan like I am, I like the idea of eating a turkey blend, instead of pork chorizo because it is a lot leaner.  In this recipe for Turkey Chorizo Chili, I added lean ground turkey, along with the chorizo turkey sausage, to bulk up the recipe and create a poultry wonderland that I think you will enjoy.  After a adding a few cans of your favorite beans, you now have a nice meal to share with your family and friends. I like to eat this right out of a bowl, but it’s also divine over nachos, or in a morning egg burrito.
