2 T olive oil
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 large red bell pepper, chopped
2 T all-purpose flour
1 ¼ cups chicken broth
1 lb. white ground turkey
28 oz diced or crushed tomatoes
30 oz pinto or kidney beans
4 T chili powder
2 T cumin

Crushed tortilla chips
Chop your onion and red bell pepper. Mince your garlic if you are not using pre-minced.
In a large soup pot, add your olive oil, onion, red bell pepper and garlic. Cook them for 6-8 minutes on medium heat, stirring occasionally until your onions are translucent.
Add your white ground turkey to the pot and turn up the heat to medium-high. Break up the turkey into small pieces using your spatula or a wooden spoon as it cooks. Continue cooking the turkey and breaking it apart until there are no spots of raw turkey left.
Add your all-purpose flour to the pot. Stir until combined and continue to stir occasionally while it cooks for another 5 minutes.
Pour your chicken broth into the pot and stir until the flour has dissolved into the broth.
Add your chili powder, cumin, dried oregano, paprika, and salt into the broth and stir until combined.
Drain your canned beans. Pour in your tomatoes and beans, stirring to incorporate them into the broth.
Bring the chili up to a boil and then turn the heat down to medium-low. Simmer for 20-25 minutes, stirring regularly to keep the chili from sticking to the bottom.
Serve immediately and top as desired. Enjoy!
