It's Friday and there was autumn in the air this morning. So I thought it seemed like a good time to break out an autumnal recipe, my own chili recipe! I use turkey in this, but you can easily substitute chicken or beef. But try not to leave out the beer! This pairs well with corn bread (but what chili doesn't?) and the beer used in the recipe. Enjoy!

Turkey Chili

1-2 tbs olive oil

1# Lean gr. Turkey

1 lg. Onion chopped

3 cloves garlic, chopped

¼ c. celery, chopped

1/4 c. carrot, finely chopped

2 14.5 ounce cans black beans, rinsed

3 14.5 ounce cans of diced tomatoes

2 ½  cups chicken or beef stock

1 tbs worstcheshire

8 ounces scotch ale

1 tbs dark brown sugar

2 tbs chili powder

1 tbs cumin

½ tsp red chili

1 tsp oregano

pinch of cinnamon

Salt and pepper

Heat olive oil over medium-high heat in dutch oven. Add turkey, salt and pepper, and brown, breaking up with a wooden spoon. Remove turkey. Reduce heat to medium and cook onion, carrot, and celery until golden. Add garlic and cook 1 minute. Return turkey to pot. Add spices and cook for 30 seconds or so, just enough time to let them bloom. Return heat to medium-high and add scotch ale, deglacing pan. Reduce until liquid is almost gone. Add beans, tomato, stock, brown sugar, and worstcheshire. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to achieve a simmer. Simmer over low heat for 60-90 minutes, depending on how quickly chili thickens. Stir occasionally. Adjust salt and pepper. Serve with shredded cheese, raw onions, avocado, or your favorite garnish of choice.
