  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves, crushed

    • Serving Suggestion: Serve with warm restaurant-style tortilla chips. For dessert serve sliced watermelon and brownies.
  • Step 1

    Heat the oil in a 4-quart saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the turkey, onion, chili powder, cumin, oregano, black pepper and garlic powder. Cook until the turkey is cooked through, stirring often to separate meat.

    Stir the broth, picante sauce, sugar, beans and corn in the saucepan and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

    I made this for the first time and followed the recipe step by step. Very tasty. Will definitely make again. Everyone in the family loved it.

  • Easy and delicious!

    This recipe is wonderful. I've made it so many times I can't remember how many! I've even started adding different ingredients to it and upped the spices when I do. I've added a can of diced tomatoes and a can of green chilies, chopped. It is an easy 'go to' recipe when making something for a large group and great for the gluten-free crowd.

    Very simple dish that is very tasty. Used ground chicken instead of Turkey.

    I make this chili all the time. I mess with the ingredients and have added some things to make it my own. I add 1 1/2 Tbsp of lime juice and 1/3 cup hot picante sauce. It spices it up and adds some tang.

    I love to make this chili with whatever turkey I have left after the holidays, just simmer it in the chicken broth until it shreds up nicely. I get so tired of the classic holiday spread of turkey and gravy and this recipe is awesome for getting a completely different flavor! My husband and toddler love it too, also the recipe doubles nicely. Delicious.
