Wild Turkey Chili: A One Pot Delight!
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour, 15 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour, 25 minutes

1 - 1.5 pounds ground wild turkey
1 large onion, diced
2 red bell peppers, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 jalapeno pepper, diced (with or without seeds depending on desired heat level)
1 tablespoon chili powder
2 teaspoons cumin
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon coriander
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
3 bay leaves
3 tablespoons tomato paste
1 and 1/2 cups dry red wine
28 ounce can crushed tomatoes
3 15 oz. canned beans, drained
salt and pepper to taste

In a large pot, such as a ceramic dutch oven, brown ground wild turkey over medium high heat.
While the meat is browning, chop and dice up peppers, onions, jalapeno, and garlic. Add to the pot as you chop. Cook until meat is browned and onions and peppers are soft, about eight to ten minutes.
To the turkey meat mixture, add chili powder, cumin, coriander, oregano, and nutmeg. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Drop in tomato paste and stir. Let cook for one minute. Add in bay leaves.
Pour the wine into pot and stir, releasing bits and pieces from the bottom of the pot.
Add crushed tomatoes and canned beans.
Bring pot to a boil, cover, and reduce to low heat. Simmer the pot for one hour.
Serve chili topped with chopped onion, cheddar cheese, sour cream! Enjoy!
