Ground Turkey Green Chili Recipe


Ground Turkey Green Chili Recipe

Skip the pork and use ground turkey to make a ground turkey green chili recipe using beer as the braising liquid.  It’s delicious!

Chili is a staple meal in our house and I’m always looking for new ways to mix it up so that we don’t get bored of the same old recipe.  I’ve found that using ground turkey is a great way to lighten it up and using green chile peppers is another way to mix it up without adding too much heat. 

In fact, we all like our chili a little spicy and then I like to add sour cream to mellow it out a bit.

Adding green chiles adds another layer of flavor to chili and just a touch of heat.  This Green Turkey Chili is actually made with beer as the braising liquid, so you get an extra dimension to the flavor.  You can’t taste the beer, and all the alcohol burns off, but it just makes the chili extra flavorful!

Easy Green Chili With Ground Turkey Instead of Pork

The green chili flavor comes from the onions, green chiles, fire-roasted tomatoes, and beer!  Serve with a warmed tortilla and it will warm your soul on a cold night!  Let us know what you think.
