Sweet and Tangy Chili Recipe

Another chili?  Yes, another chili!  Chili is incredibley versatile and can be made so many ways. And by golly, I am determined to try as many as possible!

Did I really just say, "By Golly?!"

The red wine with the balsamic vinegar add a wonderful tang that is perfect in this chili.  The cinnamon and the other flavors blend together perfectly!

Throw it in the slow cooker and come home to an awesome meal.

Sweet and Tangy Chili Recipe

2 lbs. ground turkey
2 onions, chopped
2 peppers, chopped
1 jalapeno, chopped
2 tbsp. garlic, minced
1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tsp. beef bouillion
1 (15 oz) can of tomato sauce
1 cup ketchup
1/2 cup water (or more if desired)
3/4 cup red wine
2 (15 oz) can black beans, drained and rinsed
2 (15 oz) can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp. chili powder
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp. brown sugar
2 tbsp. paprika
2 tbsp. cumin
2 tsp. cinnamon
Salt and pepper

In a large saucepan, brown ground turkey.  Add onion, peppers, garlic and jalapeno and cook for about 5 minutes.  Pour ground turkey mixture into a large crock pot.  Add the remaining ingredients and stir thoroughly.  Heat on low for at least 4 hours, I cooked mine for more like 7 hours. Everything is cooked, you're just getting the flavors to come together nicely. 

This makes a huge batch.  It freezes well if you want to freeze half for another meal.
