Turkey Chili Sat, 05/28/05 11:23 AM (permalink)
Turkey chili is good, I may like it more than traditional chili. Has anyone else tried it?

    You "may" like it more? Either you do or you don't.

      A couple of times. Once with domestic turkey and once with a wild one. I'd never eat the domestic version again.

            Ohhhhh...When you said Wild Turkey I thought you meant the drink not the animal! I though chili and wild turkey was an odd combo.

              I'm a Jack Daniels guy, but a little Wild Turkey will do in a pinch.

                On occasion I'll do my regular chili, made normally with cubes of beef and pork----with turkey instead. Dark meat works best, it has much more of the color and seems closer to the beef. While it's not like the real stuff, it's pretty good.

                        I have made chili---same recipe i use to make "a bowl of Texas Red"---posted previously and "Bushie approved!--with Turkey and only ONE person noticed it was turkey. Its not the meat that makes the chili---but the seasonings and the cooking method---(and of course. the fact that the beans are ON THE SIDE not IN the chili[;)Even an old Yankee like me learned that!]--I have had good chili with antelope,venison,armidillo,wild pig,beef,and ostrich ---it all tasted fine to me!

                          Were all those animals in the same bowl? That would have been some interesting chili!

                            Turkey chile with enough tabasco and other seasonings is pretty tasty. I still prefer beef though.

                                I agree with Tiki, any kind of meat can make some good chili.

                                Looking forward to hear how it goes Stoney!

                                Hmmm, "Sunday House Smoked Turkey" chili! I love those turkeys and it might make some good chili?

                                    I think some people might be thinking slices of Thanksgiving turkey, which would in fact be bad. Ground turkey chili is fine, but not as good as beef.

                                      Ground turkey chili has always tasted good to me.

                                      Diced, floured, and browned, dark meat smoked turkey might not be bad..... but I've never tried it.... so you could be right Theedge. I think I'll try some when I get the chance. Hey, I'll eat almost anything! And, so will my dog.

                                        So if we're doing ground turkey, what about ground chicken?

                                        Chicken Chili.

                                              The hot dog thought isnt that far off....my Mom would occasionally chop up hot dogs(skin on weiners from Usingers)and put them in her chili to "stretch it"in the lean days.Really quite good.And i have a favorite family recipe called hot dog spaghetti-but will save that for another forum.....

                                                I made fast fix meals for the grandzillas lots of times using hot dogs and chili, "chili dog stew". They eat it up. Just a pack of cheep dogs sliced up, and a can of Wolf Brand, cheese for toping, fritoes and saltines on the side.

                                                A good homemaid chili w/ some quility dogs might be great? Anyone done it? I'll top my bowl w/ some sourcraut, chopped onions, and pickled jalapenos.

                                                  Green chile with sliced Thanksgiving leftovers sounds heavenly to me. Some kind of simple sauce, maybe with a few onions as well as the green chiles, added to some really good leftover turkey gravy, give the meat just long enough in there to warm it up... I'd eat that.

                                                  ...Of course maybe that says more about me than it does about the idea.

                                                    1 TBSP veggie oil
                                                    1 pound ground turkey
                                                    2 medium onions, diced

                                                    2 cups mushrooms, sliced
                                                    5 cloves garlic, crushed
                                                    1 (15oz) can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
                                                    1 (15oz) can chick peas, rinsed and drained
                                                    1 cup corn, rinsed and drained
                                                    1/2 cup medium bulgur wheat
                                                    1 (28oz) can diced tomatoes
                                                    1 cup chicken broth
                                                    2 TBSp worcestershire sauce
                                                    2 TBSP chili powder
                                                    1 tsp dried basil
                                                    2 tsp ground cumin
                                                    1 tsp dried oregano
                                                    1 tsp sugar
                                                    2 habanero chiles, stemmed and chopped
                                                    salt and fresh pepper

                                                    In a large skillet heat the oil, and then brown the ground turkey off

                                                    In a large slow cooker, combine meat with all other ingredients

                                                    stir well

                                                    Cook on low heat for 6-7 hours

                                                    Serve

                                                    It may not be a bowl of red but it is good eating none the less!

                                                        Turkey Chili,

                                                        is like a ship without a wheel
                                                        A touch without a feel
                                                        I can't believe it's real...

                                                        The few times i have eaten eat it seams like all you taste is chili flavor from the spices. I had no meat flavor.

                                                          You have maybe not had any good turkey chili Joe. It can be good stuff. Like someone here said, any meat can work, and be good. Even a vegi chili can be good. You can't think it's gonna taste like red meat chili though. It's a different kinda bird.

                                                            You're probably right, I have had it out of a can, Wolf Brand, at a chili cookoff, and once in a restaurant.

                                                            The Wild Turkey Chili above sounds intresting though. Kinda like cooking along with Justin Wilson.
