Delicious Turkey Chili

I found this rather unusual recipe of chili, but it is very good. A little spicy, which we love. You will definitely get your veggies with this one!

You will need:

- 3 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
- 1 1/2 pounds ground turkey
- 1 (1 oz) package taco seasoning mix
- 1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon chili pepper flakes
- 2 tablespoons tomato paste
- 1 (14.5 oz) can beef broth
- 1 (7 oz) can salsa
- 2 (14.5 oz) can crushed tomatoes
- 1 (7 oz) can chopped green chili peppers
- 1 medium onion, finely chopped
- 1 green bell pepper, diced
- 3 medium zucchini, halved lengthwise and sliced
- 1 bunch green onions, chopped
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese


1. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large stock pot over medium-high heat. Crumble turkey into the pot, stirring with a wooden spoon to break apart as much as possible. Season with taco seasoning mix, coriander, oregano, chili flakes, and tomato paste. Mix until meat is evenly coated with seasonings. Continue cooking, reducing heat if necessary, until turkey is well browned. 

2. Pour in beef broth and simmer to reduce liquid slightly, for about 5 minutes. Add salsa, tomatoes, and green chilies and continue cooking at a moderate simmer for 10 minutes. Adjust the thickness at any time by adding water. 

3. While chili is still cooking, heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook onion and green bell pepper, stirring occasionally for 5 minutes, or until onion is translucent and bell pepper is lightly browned. Add onion and bell pepper to the chili and continue at a very low simmer. 

4. In the same skillet, heat the remaining tablespoon of oil over medium-high heat. Add the zucchini and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the zucchini to the chili, reduce heat, and continue cooking for 15 more minutes. Again, adjust the consistency with the water as needed. 

5. Ladle chili into serving bowls. Top with sour cream, green onion, and Cheddar cheese. 

Enjoy your awesome chili!!!
