Ingredients Step 1

  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 3 pounds Ground Turkey

Ingredients Step 2

  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 cup Sweet Onion chopped
  • 1 cup Green Pepper diced
  • 1 tbsp Garlic minced

Ingredients Step 3

  • 2 oz Chili Powder or more to your taste
  • 1 tbsp Ground Cumin
  • 1 tbsp Oregano
  • 2 tsp Salt

Ingredients Step 4

  • 2 Guinness Foreign Extra Stout or Beef stock (22-ounces)
  • 24- ounces Chili Sauce medium or hotter
  • 1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce reduced sodium
  • 1 Crushed Puree Tomatoes 28 ounces

Ingredients Step 5

  • 1 Dark Red Kidney Beans 15.5 oz drained and rinsed
  • 1 Cannellini Beans 15.5 oz drained and rinsed
  • 1 Red Chili Beans 16 oz drained and rinsed

Toppings I Use

  • Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • Cornbread
  • Tortilla Chips
  • Sour Cream
  • Fresh Chives


Preparation Step 1

  • Cover the bottom of a skillet with olive oil and heat. Add ground turkey; cook for about 10-minutes, stirring occasionally.

Preparation Step 2

  • While the turkey is cooking, cover the bottom of a large soup pot with olive oil and heat. Add chopped onions and green peppers. Simmer while ground turkey is cooking. Add the garlic just before adding the turkey and cook for a few minutes. Strain the cooked Ground Turkey and add to the soup pot and stir. If using Ground Beef, rinsed the cooked Ground Beef to remove excess fat.

Preparation Step 3

  • Add ingredients from step 3. I like to stir the spices and chili powder into the turkey mixture before adding any liquids. That way the cooked turkey is evenly coated.

Preparation Step 4

  • Add ingredients from step 4 including the Guinness Stout! I like to incorporate each ingredient into the turkey mixture before adding the next ingredient. Simmer for an hour to blend the flavors.

Preparation Step 5

  • Add your beans and simmer for another 30-minutes.

Preparation Serve

  • Serve with sharp cheddar cheese and cornbread. You can serve the toppings in separate bowls so everyone can prepare their own bowl of chili. I hope you enjoy this recipe!
