30-Minute Turkey Chili from Food Network Kitchens

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 chipotle chile en adobo, coarsely chopped, with 1 tablespoon sauce
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 (12-ounce) Mexican lager-style beer
  • 1 (14 1/2-ounce) can whole peeled tomatoes, with their juice
  • 1 (15 1/2-ounce) can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • Sliced scallions, cilantro sprigs, avocado, sour cream, gratedMonterey jack cheese, and/or tortilla chips, for garnish, optional

DIRECTIONS

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Add the onion, garlic, salt, chili powder, and oregano and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 3 minutes.
  3. Stir in the tomato paste and the chipotle chile and sauce; cook 1 minute more.
  4. Add the turkey, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, and cook until the meat loses its raw color, about 3 minutes.
  5. Add the beer and simmer until reduced by about half, about 8 minutes.
  6. Add the tomatoes–crushing them through your fingers into the skillet–along with their juices and the beans; bring to a boil.
  7. Cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until thick, about 10 minutes.

Ladle the chili into bowls and serve with the garnishes of your choice.

Cook’s Note: A skillet’s larger surface area reduces sauces faster than simmering in a saucepan.

INGREDIENTS

PREPARATION

  1. 1. Heat the oil in a heavy large frying pan over medium heat.
  2. Add the onion and garlic and saute until translucent, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the carrot and celery and saute until the vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes.
  4. Add the turkey and saute 1 minute.
  5. Add the marinara sauce.
  6. Decrease the heat to medium-low and simmer gently for 15 minutes to allow the flavors to blend, stirring often.
  7. Stir in the basil. Season the sauce, to taste, with salt and pepper. (The sauce can be made 1 week ahead.
  8. Cool the sauce completely, then transfer it to a container and freeze for future use. Bring the sauce to a simmer before using.)
  9. Meanwhile, cook the spaghetti in a large pot of boiling salted water until just tender but still firm to bite, stirring often, about 8 minutes.
  10. Drain, reserving 1 cup of the cooking liquid. Add the pasta to the sauce and toss to coat, adding enough reserved cooking liquid to moisten as needed. Serve with the Parmesan.
