The Biggest Loser Season 9 Jennie-O Turkey Chili recipe

Posted Feb 02 2010 7:51pm


Turkey chilli recipe from The Biggest Loser Season 9 episode 5 that aired tonight February 2nd, 2010

Quite interestingly enough, I will have a face off later this month where I put turkey chili against meat chili.

This turkey recipe will allow you to enjoy your favourite comfort food without all the extra calories. When it comes to chili, I like both meat chili (which I prepare with lean veal ground meat) and turkey chili, but undoubtedly the turkey chili will always be in lower in calories and fat!

1 (20-ounce) package JENNIE-O TURKEY STORE® Extra Lean Ground Turkey

1 cup coarsely chopped onion

1 red bell pepper, cut into 1/4-inch cubes

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 jalapeño peppers, seeded and minced (optional)

1 tablespoon chili powder

1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin

1 1/2 teaspoons ground coriander

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves

1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram leaves

1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

2 (16-ounce) cans of low sodium whole tomatoes, drained and coarsely chopped

1 (16-ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed

8 ounce tomato sauce

1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

4 tablespoons low fat shredded Cheddar cheese


In a large stockpot, combine turkey, onion, red pepper, garlic, jalapeño peppers, chili powder, cumin, coriander, oregano, marjoram, red pepper flakes and cinnamon. Cook mixture over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until turkey is no longer pink. Stir in tomatoes and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 5 minutes. Stir in beans and cilantro. Continue cooking for an additional 5 minutes. Serve topped with cheese. Makes about 10 cups.
