We are expecting a mini heat wave here in Boston over the next few days (think typical May in Houston), but today is gray and rainy. It makes for some good chili weather. This recipe is a little spicy, and a definite comfort food. I mix in sour cream at the end to tone down the spiciness, add less if you like a kick. Top with cheese, and enjoy with crackers.

Ingredients

1 lb. ground turkey
1 yellow onion, diced
3 cloves garlic minced
1 serrano chile, seeded and minced
1 large jalapeño, seeded and sliced
2 chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, minced
2 1/2 tbsp. chili powder
1 can (28 ounces) whole peeled tomatoes, chopped
2 cans (15 ounces) black beans, half drained
1 tbsp. white vinegar
sea salt

sour cream
shredded cheese

Directions

1. Brown the turkey on the stove top, adding 1 1/2 tbsp. of the chili powder to the meat
2. Saute onions on stove until they are translucent
3. Add tomatoes, turkey, onions, garlic, chiles, and the jalapeño to the slow cooker
4. Let the mixture warm for an hour (or longer)
5. Add the black beans, white vinegar and remaining chili powder
6. Salt to taste
7. Let the chili sit for an additional 30 minutes
8. Dish out chili, and mix in a tbsp of sour cream (to tone down spiciness)
9. Top with cheese
