Serves 4 hungry boyfriends in 30 minutes.  Makes great left overs!

  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 5 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 chile en adobe, minced (you can find this in the hispanic section at the grocery store)
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1/3 cup red wine
  • 1 red pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 (28 ounce) can of whole peeled tomatoes
  • 1 (15.5) ounce can of pinto beans, drained
  • optional: tortillas, cilantro, limes, scallions, mexican cheese
1.  In a cast iron skillet heat olive oil over medium heat.  Add onions cooking 3-5 minutes until translucent, stirring occasionally.  Add garlic and cook for 1 more minute, stirring constantly.  Mix in chili powder, cumin, oregano, and salt.  Stir in tomato paste and chili en adobe, cooking for a minute.  Raise heat to medium-high.  Add turkey, breaking up into pieces using a wooden spoon.  Cook until meat loses its raw color, 3 minutes.  Add chicken stock and wine.  Simmer for 6 minutes, until reduced by half.  Add red pepper and tomates, crushing tomatoes  with your fingers.  Pour in leftover juice from can.  Add beans.  Bring to a boil and cook uncovered for 10 minutes, until thick.  

2.  Serve your boyfriend.  I like giving my boyfriend some options for his chili.  Options: tortillas, cilantro, limes (lime juice), scallions, and mexican cheese.  He can assemble however he wants.
