  1. Heat vegetable oil in a large pot over medium-high heat and stir in the ground turkey. Cook and stir until the turkey is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink. Drain and discard any excess grease. Stir in the onion; cook and stir until the onion is tender, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the chicken broth, tomatoes, black beans, kidney beans, refried beans, garlic, chili powder, paprika, oregano, cumin, salt, and black pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes. Sprinkle each bowl with a teaspoon of Cheddar cheese, if desired.

Quick and easy. I really enjoyed this. Who thought you could make a pot of chili after getting home from work. For those of you who like your chili hot and spicy -- you will need to add something. This is great for the whole family.

Really delicious! I think what surprised me was how much I like the refried beans and how they enhance the consistency of the chili. I used vegetarian beans and diced toms.with garlic and onions. I also added some chopped celery. I also used dried beans since that is what I prefer for texture, and they hold up better in chili than canned. A great, tasty, and quick recipe. Thanks for sharing!

I use a lot of recipes off this site, but I have to say that this is the BEST Chili recipe I have ever used hands down and I am not sure why! It is super easy and super delicious and it makes a GREAT vegetarian chili also!

It was delicious. I added an extra 1/2 tablespoon of chili powder to give it a bit more kick. My husband LOVED it and asked me to please keep it in the rotation of meals.
