Thanksgiving Leftovers: Turkey Chili

Usually by Saturday night we’re a little tired of straightforward Thanksgiving Redux.

So tonight I turned some of the turkey into a very delicious, very fast chili recipe:

Quick Turkey Chili

  • Saute in a little oil till soft: 2-3 cloves garlic, 1 medium onion, 1 bell pepper
  • Add a cup or two cut up cooked turkey and a can of white or other beans (drained)
  • Stir in 1-2 tsp chili powder and 1-2 tsp ground cumin (to taste–as much as you’d like, really!), and possibly 1/2 tsp salt if your broth isn’t salted
  • Add 1/2 cup turkey (or other) broth and 1/4-1/2 cup prepared salsa.
  • If desired, sprinkle a little flour over the top and stir in, or make a flour-water “slurry” to thicken slightly.
  • Let simmer uncovered until it’s the consistency you like. Serve over rice or with/in tortillas


This was delicious.  And made some good leftovers–we’ll take some for lunches on Monday. Enjoy!
