Turkey Chili with Pinto Beans & Baby Kale

Lean ground turkey and nutrient-rich kale pick up big flavor in this nourishing chili. Let everyone pile on their favorite toppings at the table.

Ingredients Included

  • Ground turkey
  • Pinto beans
  • Jalapeño pepper (optional)
  • Chili base
  • Baby kale or spinach
  • Green onions
  • Greek yogurt
  • Shredded jack cheese
  • Tortilla chips or tostadas

You'll Need

  • Vegetable oil
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Beer or chicken stock (optional)
Allergen Note: Contains milk.

Step 1

In a saucepan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon vegetable oil. Add the ground turkey, season with salt and pepper, and cook until browned, breaking up the meat with a spoon, about 10 minutes.

Step 2

Meanwhile, rinse and drain the beans. Mince the jalapeño, if using. Add the jalapeño to the turkey and stir until fragrant, 1 minute. Add the chili base, beans, and 1½ cups beer, broth, or water. Bring to a simmer to let the flavors combine and alcohol evaporate, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir in the baby kale to wilt, 1 minute. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Step 3

Meanwhile, slice a few green onions. Set out the yogurt, jack, and tortilla chips for serving (crumble the tostadas, if necessary).

Step 4

Ladle the chili into bowls and serve warm, passing all of the toppings at the table.
