“Chili con carne,” typically shortened to just “chili,” is truly an American dish—more specifically, it’s attributed to San Antonio, Texas. Its history is long and colorful, marked by chili parlors, mom-and-pop chili shops, communal cook-offs and fiery controversy surrounding the inclusion of beans. (Here, we’re in favor!) Most importantly, though: chili is delicious. We’re making ours with turkey instead of beef and topping off the rich, delightfully spicy stew with cheddar cheese, avocado, cilantro and lime rounds.

Turkey Chili with Avocado & Cheddar Cheese ingredients
  • 10 Ounces Ground Turkey
  • 1 15-Ounce Can Crushed Tomatoes
  • Cups Red Kidney Beans
  • 4 Cloves Garlic
  • 3 Stalks Celery

  • 1 Jalapeño Pepper
  • Tablespoons Turkey Chili Spice Blend (Smoked Chile Powder & Ground Cumin)
Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Drain and rinse the beans. Peel and mince the garlic. Small dice the celery. Halve the lime; slice one half into thin rounds, leaving the other half whole. Pit, peel and medium dice the avocado; toss with the juice of the lime half to prevent browning. Peel and small dice the onion. Pick the cilantro leaves off the stems; discard the stems. Grate the cheddar cheese. Remove and discard the ribs and seeds of the jalapeño; small dice the jalapeño, washing your hands immediately afterwards.
