Amanda's Chili

Everyone has their own chili recipe.  This is mine.

Makes 8 – 10 servings
1 lb ground turkey
½ green bell pepper – diced
½ red bell pepper – diced
½ yellow or sweet onion – diced
2-3 cloves of garlic – minced or pressed
1 packet of chili powder
1 can red kidney beans
1 can pinto beans
1 can Bush’s chili beans
1 can hominy or garbanzo beans
1 can diced tomatoes
½ can of dark beer
1 can tomato sauce (optional)
Tbsp tomato paste (optional)
Spices to taste (optional):  pepper, salt, oregano, cayenne pepper, cumin

Brown turkey in a large pot until cooked through.  Transfer to a bowl and pour off majority of fat – leaving only about a tbsp for sautéing the veggies.  Add veggies to the pot and sauté until soft – about 10 minutes.  Add turkey from bowl back into veggies.  Add chili powder and stir to coat meat and veggies.  Add all canned beans, hominy, and diced tomatoes.  Pour beer over mix.  If you prefer a soupier chili add 1 can of tomato sauce.  If that thins it out too much you can add a tbsp or two of tomato paste to get back up to desired thickness.  Season to taste with spices listed as desired.  Serve with shredded cheese and sour cream.
