Dr Pepper One of a Kind Chili


2 TBSP oil - I used Olive 

1 pound ground turkey - you could also use ground beef

1 large yellow onion, diced

3 garlic gloves, minced 

1 red bell pepper, diced 

2 green peppers, diced

1 TBSP chili powder 

1/2 TBSP cumin

1/4 tsp cayenne - more or less as desired

1 tsp oregano 

1/4 tsp allspice

1/2 tsp thyme

salt and pepper to taste 

1 12 ounce can Dr Pepper (diet for a lighter dish)

1 cup chicken broth

2 TBSP tomato paste

1 15 ounce can pinto beans, drained

1 15 ounce can chili beans, do not drain

1 15 ounce can Mexican diced tomatoes 


1.  In a large pot, heat oil on medium heat and add the ground turkey.  Brown turkey, about 5-6 minutes or until no longer pink.  

2.  Add onions to meat and saute until tender and translucent.  

3.  Add bell peppers and cook for additional 3-4 minutes.  

4.  Stir in garlic and cook for another minute.  

5.  Stir in spices and cook for 2 minutes.  

6.  Add Dr Pepper, tomato paste and chicken broth to the mixture - stir in well!  

7.  Continue to stir until tomato paste is completely dissolved.  

8.  Add the beans and diced tomatoes.  

9.  Bring chili to a simmer and keep at a simmer for at least 30 minutes.  This recipe can simmer for up to 2 hours as long as you stir occasionally.  

10.  Serve hot from the pot!  

11.  Top chili with sour cream, shredded cheese, green onions and corn chips!  Delicious!
