Try this easy, chipotle turkey chili for a hearty family meal! Pantry staples became our saving grace during the height of COVID. We wanted to limit exposure and stay safely hunkered down. Keeping a well stocked freezer and pantry meant you could whip up a creative dinner without having to mask up and head to the market.
Kenny and I got particularly good at stretching our groceries to limit frequent trips to Trader Joe’s. Fewer shopping trips necessitated recipes using ingredients that could be frozen or pantry-stored. This recipe is from the COVID hangover series. You can whip it up with staples you’ll find in a well stocked kitchen. Combine a couple pounds of frozen ground turkey and sliced bell peppers with some strategically stocked canned goods and you’re ready to whip up a delicious meal.
Canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce are the real heroes here, because they add tremendous smoky heat to humble turkey. Chopping the chilies with their seeds can get pretty spicy. Be sure to use fewer peppers if you have low tolerance for heat.
Cook this chipotle turkey chili the next time you want a quick, healthy meal for the family!
