Turkey Chilli


  • 3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 5 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 2 tsp chilli powder
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 15g tomato puree
  • 1 chipotle chile in adobo, coarsely chopped, with 1 tbsp sauce
  • 450g turkey mince
  • 350ml Mexican lager-style beer
  • 1 (415g) tin whole peeled tomatoes, with their juice
  • 1 (475g) tin kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • Sliced spring onions, coriander sprigs, avocado, sour cream, grated Monterey jack cheese, and/or tortilla chips, for garnish


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion, garlic, salt, chilli powder, and oregano and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 3 mins.
  2. Stir in the tomato puree and the chipotle chilli and sauce; cook 1 min more. Add the turkey, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, and cook until the meat loses its raw color, about 3 mins.
  3. Add the beer and simmer until reduced by about half, about 8 mins.
  4. 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 mins.
  5. Ladle the chilli into bowls and serve with the garnishes of your choice.
