Easily made in less than 30 minutes, this Southwestern classic has smoke and heat from the chipotle pepper. If you’re going the meatless route, use soy crumbles instead of turkey and enjoy with cilantro, sour cream, tortilla chips or avocado!



  1. Heat the olive oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion, garlic, salt, chili powder, and oregano and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 3 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste and the chipotle chile and sauce; cook 1 minute more. Add the turkey, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, and cook until the meat loses its raw color, about 3 minutes. Add the beer and simmer until reduced by about half, about 8 minutes. Add the tomatoes--crushing them through your fingers into the skillet--along with their juices and the beans; bring to a boil. Cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until thick, about 10 minutes. 
  2. Ladle the chili into bowls and serve with the garnishes of your choice.

Cook’s Note

A skillet's larger surface area reduces sauces faster than simmering in a saucepan.
