John's Hearty Turkey Chili

For the past few years my husband, John, has been making chili, each timing tweaking to make it better than the last.  Since he's perfected it, I am no longer allowed to make the chili, and quite frankly, I don't think I could make anything that would even come close to the flavor that this chili has got.  I wholeheartedly believe that this chili could wins contests!  John finally let me in on his secret and allowed me to write down the method to his chili madness.  If you like a chili with beans, tomatoes and a slight kick, you will LOVE this!  The best part, it's healthy for the most part and packed with protein.  A one cup serving will fill your belly!  Chili freezes well, so if this makes too much for you, just portion it out into smaller servings and stick in the freezer.  Voila!  You have a meal for another day when you are short on time!....and oh!  This is 21 Day Fix friendly.... a 1 cup serving is 1 RED and 1 YELLOW container.

1/2 stick of grass fed butter
1 large onion, diced
2 lbs. ground turkey
12 oz. beer of your choice
1 can of kidney beans, drained
1 can of pinto beans, drained
1 can of black beans, drained
small bag of frozen corn
2 cans of stewed tomatoes
3 large peppers, diced (1 green, 1 red, 1 yellow)
4 Tbsp. ancho chili powder
1 Tbsp. Cumin
2 tsp. adobo seasoning
2 tsp. granulated garlic
2 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. chili powder (add more if you like a chili with more heat)
6 oz. bottle of chili sauce

1. Melt the butter in a large pot.  Add in diced onions, cook until sweated.
2. Add the turkey to brown.
3. Deglaze the pan with the beer of your choice, making sure to scrape the bottom and get up all the little      bits.
4. Add in the beans, corn, stewed tomatoes, peppers, all the seasonings and the chili sauce.
5. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer.  Cover and cook to let the flavors meld together.  The longer the better!
6. Enjoy!

21 Day Fix friendly...... 1 cup = 1 RED and 1 YELLOW
