The Best Chili Recipe You Could Ever Ask For

    1 lb ground turkey thighs
    1 lb ground turkey breast
    2 cans (14 oz each can) diced tomatoes
    1 can (14 oz) kidney beans
    1 can (14 oz) white beans
    6 oz tomato paste
    32 oz chicken broth
    1 large onion, minced
    1 jalapeno pepper, chopped
    1 green bell pepper, chopped
    8 garlic cloves, chopped
    4 tablespoons chili powder
    1½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
    2 teaspoons smoked paprika
    1 teaspoon ground cumin
    2 teaspoons dried oregano
    2 teaspoons cocoa powder
    2 teaspoons brown sugar
    ½ teaspoon salt
    4 tablespoons olive oil
    Shredded Cheddar, for serving
    Sour Cream, for serving

In a large pot heat 2 tablespoon of olive oil. Add onion, garlic and both types of peppers and cook over medium heat for 10 minutes.
Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a medium sauté pan and add ground turkey. Cook, stirring constantly and breaking up the big chunks with a fork until the liquid evaporates and meat is thoroughly cooked and slightly brown.
Add the ground meat into a pot with an onion and pepper mixture.
Pour in diced tomatoes and beans.
Dilute tomato paste with 1 cup of chicken broth and add to a pot.
Add chili powder, cayenne pepper, smoked paprika, oregano, cumin, brown sugar, cocoa powder, chicken broth and ½ teaspoon of salt.
Stir together well, cover, and then reduce the heat to low. If the soup becomes too thick, add ½ cup of chicken broth.
Simmer for 1 hour.
Serve with cheddar and a dollop of sour cream.
