the easiest and best chili ever

yes, another excuse to use my le creuset french oven. this chili recipe is not only the easiest ever but it is also the most delicious. nick and i made a batch over the weekend and it disappeared really fast. i *miiiiight* use it as an excuse to eat lots of cheddar and sour cream...

  • 2 lbs ground turkey
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 green or red bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 4 (14 1/2 ounces each) can diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 3 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 (16 ounces each) cans kidney beans
cook ground turkey in the french oven over medium heat until browned and cooked through; drain any liquid. mix in remaining ingredients. cover and cook on medium-low heat for two hours or until onion and pepper are soft (keep at a simmer). stir occassionally while simmering. taste for spice and add additional chili powder or cumin as desired. serve in bowls topped with shredded cheddar and sour cream to taste.
