Wash produce before use


Prep the chili ingredients

  • Cut a small corner from the ground turkey packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.
  • Peel and finely chop enough shallots to measure ¼ cup (½ cup).
  • Scrub or peel the sweet potato; cut the potato into ½-inch pieces.
  • Remove the stem, ribs, and seeds from the bell pepper; cut the pepper into ½-inch pieces.


Cook the chili

In a large sauce pot over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the turkey, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring to break up the meat, until lightly browned but not yet cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
Add the shallots and sweet potato to the pan, season with salt and pepper, and cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables start to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the chili spice blend and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
Add the turkey, tomato base, bell pepper, and 2 cups (3 cups) water, season with salt, and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the turkey is cooked through, the vegetables are tender, and the chili has thickened, 15 to 18 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. When the chili is almost done, prepare the cabbage slaw.


Make the cabbage slaw

  • Cut away any core from the cabbage; thinly slice the cabbage.
  • Coarsely chop the cilantro; set aside half for garnish.
In a large bowl, toss together the cabbage, 2 teaspoons (4 tsp) oil, half the apple cider vinegar, and half the cilantro. Season to taste with salt and pepper and more vinegar, if desired.


Transfer the chili to individual bowls. Garnish with as much cabbage slaw as you like and the remaining cilantro. Serve any remaining slaw on the side.
