I used ground turkey breast for this (I'm assuming the nutritional info is for regular turkey breast). My dh and 2-year-old loved this -- I did too after adding a bunch more chili powder at the table (I like spicy).
- Chili Spice Blend:
- Ground cinnamon 1 1/2 teaspoons
- Chili powder 1 teaspoon
- Paprika 1/2 teaspoon
- Pepper 1/2 teaspoon
- Dried oregano 1/2 teaspoon
- Ground cumin 1/2 teaspoon
- Ground allspice 1/4 teaspoon
- Grated nutmeg 1/4 teaspoon
- Ground cloves 1/4 teaspoon
- Turkey Chili:
- Ground turkey 1 pound
- Finely chopped onions 2/3 cup
- Finely chopped celery 1/2 cup
- Garlic, minced 2 cloves
- Bay leaf 1
- Defatted chicken broth 4 cups
- Tomato paste 6 oz
Mix the chili spice blend ingredients together in small bowl and set aside.
In a heavy 2-quart (or 3-quart) saucepan, combine the turkey, onions, and celery. Cook over medium heat, breaking the turkey apart with a spoon, until the turkey is crumbly and no longer pink.
Stir in the garlic, bay leaf, and spice blend; cook the mixture a minute longer. Add the broth and tomato paste & stir until blended.
Bring chili to a simmer, then reduce heat to low. Cook, stirring frequently, for 1 hour, or until chili reaches desired consistency.
