Fall is the perfect time for a warm bowl of chili! This Chipotle Turkey Chili with Apples recipe has the flavor of fall rolled into it with a nice hot spice and apples! I’ve never added apple cider to a chili before, it was a great combination. The original recipe is from one of my favorite food bloggers, her recipes are always fabulous. I wish my pictures of the chili looked as amazing as her’s but don’t let my ugly photos stop you from making this.
First thing I did was take a large pot to cook up the pound of ground turkey over medium heat with a chopped Granny Smith apple and a chopped small onion. I seasoned the mixture with salt and pepper.
Once the turkey was cooked I added garlic and let that cook for a minute then added the two chipotle peppers that I chopped up while the turkey was cooking.
Along with adding the peppers I added one tablespoon of the adobo sauce that the peppers come in. I also stirred in two teaspoons of cumin and chili powder and let that cook for a minute,
Next I stirred into the pot a 15 oz can of tomato sauce, with a cup of the apple cider, a cup of the chicken broth, one bay leaf plus a cinnamon stick. When all the items were mixed together I brought the chili up to a boil and then turned the stove down to simmer for 10 minutes. Then it’s done! I topped a bowl of the chili with some crushed blue chips and Mexican cheese (a dollop of plain greek yogurt and avocado would be amazing as well).
