Picadillo-Style Turkey Chili
Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add turkey and cook, stirring and breaking up with a wooden spoon, until no longer pink, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate.Advertisement
Reduce the heat to medium and add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil to the pan. Add onions and garlic and cook, stirring often, until beginning to soften and brown slightly, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in chili powder, cumin, cinnamon, pepper and salt and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add water, tomatoes, beans, olives, raisins and the turkey; bring to a boil over medium-high
heat. Reduce heat to maintain a simmer and cook until the vegetables are soft, 10 to 15 minutes.
Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
Tip: Canned beans are convenient but tend to be high in sodium. Give them a good rinse before adding to a recipe to rid them of some of their sodium (up to 35 percent) or opt for low-sodium or no-salt-added varieties. Or, if you have the time, cook your own beans from scratch.
