  • 1 Each Red, yellow, Bell Pepper, minced
  • 1 Lb Ground Turkey
  • 1 Tablespoon Chili Powder

  • 1 12 Oz Dr Pepper
  • 1 Tub Knorr Homestyle Chicken Stock
  • 2 Tablespoons Tomato Paste
  • 1 can drained, Pinto Beans
  • 1 Can Tomatoes for Chili or if you can't find those you could use mexican style tomatoes


  • In a heavy bottomed pot, add the oil and heat over medium heat.
  • Add the onion and saute until tender, about 5-7 min.
  • Add the garlic, stirring everything together to not burn the garlic, and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  • Add the minced bell peppers and saute for another 2-4 minutes or until the peppers are tender.
  • Add the ground turkey to the pot and cook through until almost cooked through, about 5-6 minutes.
  • Dump all of the spices over the meat and quickly stir it all in.
  • Let the spices cook onto the meat for 1-2 minutes.
  • Add the dr pepper, tomato paste, and knorr stock * .
  • Stir until the tub of stock and paste have dissolved.
  • Add the pinto beans, and tomatoes and turn the heat down to a simmer.
  • Simmer for 30-all day. The longer it simmers the better the flavor. Mine simmered for 2 hours on a very low heat.
  • Serve with cool sour cream, grated cheese, green onions, and chips.


you can use any condensed broth starter from the jar, the paste kind is better than the cubes
