Obama Chili Redux, Naturally Gluten-Free

From: Art of Gluten-Free Baking

Yield: 8 cups

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground turkey or chicken meat (I use a combo of white and dark meat)
  • 1 large yellow onion, diced
  • 1/2 to 1 green or yellow bell pepper, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 26 to 28 ounce box or can chopped tomatoes
  • 15 ounce can Navy beans (or beans of your choice)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano (or marjoram)
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder

Cooking Directions

  1. Place all ingredients into a crockpot and mix well. Cook for 4+ hours on high or 8+ hours on low.

For a non-crockpot version:

  1. In a heavy bottomed stock pot place over medium heat, place a couple of tablespoons of olive oil. Saute meat until brown. Add onion, bell pepper, and garlic, sautee until soft.
  2. Add the tomatoes, beans, salt, herbs, and spices. Mix well.
  3. Cover and simmer on low, stirring every so often, until the tomatoes are cooked and the flavors are melded--1 or more hours.
  4. Serve over brown rice or pasta.
