I've been on a mission to find a chili recipe over the last few years. To date, this has been my favorite. I think its the beer that gives it a tangy flavor, which I love. It's perfect to serve if you're having friends over to watch the Super Bowl since it requires very little preparation.
1 yellow onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, chopped
3 teaspoons chili powder
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 chile, chopped
1 pound ground turkey
1 12 ounce bottle of beer
1 14 ounce can tomatoes, in their juice
1 15 ounce can kidney beans, drained
Heat oil in a large skillet. Add the onion, garlic, and spices and cook about 3 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste and chili, cook another minute. Add the turkey and stir constantly for about 3 minutes. Add the beer and simmer until reduced by half, about 8 minutes. Add the tomatoes and beans. Cook uncovered for about 10 minutes. Serves four hungry men or six regular people.
