Nani’s Turkey and Black Bean Chili

I had some ground turkey that I wanted to use, so I searched my pantry to see what I might have to go with it. I found some black beans and tomatoes. It was a cool, fall day so I decided to make some chili. The chili was a huge success and another family favorite recipe has found it’s way into my blog.


  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 Tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon basil
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • (2) 15 ounce cans seasoned black beans
  • (2) 14.5 ounce cans diced tomatoes
  • (1) 6 ounce can tomato paste
  • red pepper flakes, to taste (optional)

Saute the onions and garlic in olive oil. Add ground turkey and brown. Add remaining ingredients and simmer for 1 hour. Adjust seasonings to your tastes.

Nani Tip
If you are a Penzey spice fan, you can use 2 to 3 Tablespoons Arizona Dreaming in place of the spices or in addition to lesser amounts of the other spices.
