This chili is a big people-pleaser. Everyone in my family loves it.



  1. In a blender or food processor, puree the roasted chiles and cilantro until smooth. Set aside.
  2. In a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat, combine the olive oil, onion, garlic and salt. Cook until the onion is translucent, 5 to 6 minutes. Add the turkey and cook until browned and cooked through, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, 7 to 8 minutes.
  3. Add the flour, chili powder, cumin, black pepper and cayenne and cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Deglaze the pot by adding the chicken stock and scraping up the browned bits from the bottom of the pot. Add the reserved pureed chiles and cilantro. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to a low simmer.
  4. Add the beans and simmer, partially covered, until the turkey is tender and the chili has thickened, about 1 hour. Remove from the heat, cover and keep warm until serving. Serve with toppings.

Cook’s Note

To fire-roast chiles: Place the chiles on a broiler pan about 4 inches from the flame. Broil, turning with tongs, until charred, about 2 minutes per side. Place in a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let stand about 4 minutes. Uncover and scrape away the charred skin, then cut the peppers in half and remove and discard the seeds, stems and membranes.
