Oh So Good Chili

Chili in the winter go hand in hand. A great chili recipe is a prized possession. This one is a keeper. It has several secret ingredients that adds to  It’s AWESOMEness!

1 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1/2 yellow onion, diced

2 garlic cloves, minced

1/2 pound ground beef 

1/2 pound ground turkey

1/4 cup pumpkin puree

14-ounce can crushed tomatoes

8 ounces tomato sauce

2 ounces can diced green chili’s

1/2 cup beef stock

1 Tablespoons chili powder

1/2 Tablespoon ground cumin

1/2 Tablespoon paprika

1 teaspoon ground coriander

1 teaspoon cocoa powder

1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic

¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

salt to taste

OPTIONAL: 1/2 jalapeno, seeded and finely diced to taste

Sliced avocado

In a large soup pot over medium heat, sauté the onion and garlic until onions begin to soften. Then, add the beef and turkey, and stir occasionally until browned.  Add the rest of the chili ingredients (except the avocado- save that for garnishing). Let simmer, stirring every so often for 15 minutes.  Serve and enjoy!
