Sasquatch's Power Turkey Chili Recipe

If you log a few miles on the road or on the trail, it's not unlikely you'll develop a bit of an appetite.

Sasquatch gets QUITE hungry loping around the trails and when he's looking to refuel and recover, the 'Power Turkey Chili' recipe below always satiates! (*Note-Every mile you run burns roughly 100-150 case you were wondering)

Ingredients: 1.5 pounds of ground turkey, a cerrano pepper (finely minced), one medium yellow onion (chopped), ginger (one tablespoon finely minced), 3-4 cloves of garlic (pressed), a can of Guinness, a can of tomato paste, one can of kidney beans, one can of black beans, quinoa (one cup), a large can of whole tomatoes (w/juice), one carrot (chopped), one ear of corn (just the kernals), chili powder, chipotle powder, cumin, coriander, cinnamon, and curry powder.


Saute the onion, cerrano pepper, garlic, and ginger in 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil until onions are soft.

Brown turkey in the aforementioned. Once the turkey is browned, pour the can of Guinness in and reduce for a few minutes.

Add tomato paste and the large can of tomatoes (with tomato juice). Make sure to break/crush the whole tomatoes.

Add the chopped carrots and corn kernals.

Mix in 3 tablespoons of chili powder, 3 tablespoons of chipotle powder. Through in a dash of cumin, coriander, curry, and cinnamon.

Mix in the kidney beans and black beans and let simmer for 5-10 minutes on low/medium heat.

Add a cup of quinoa (if desired) and cook until quinoa is soft/tender. Be advised the chili will be quite thick after mixing in the quinoa.

Sasquatch likes his chili pretty spicy/hot, so he sometimes adds additional chipotle and/or chili powder.
