This bean-free chocolate spice turkey chili is hearty, healthy and flavorful. The chocolate adds richness and depth of flavor, and pairs perfectly with the spices. A bowl of this is the best and tastiest way to warm up on a chilly day!
Add avocado oil, butter or ghee to a large pot over medium heat. Once hot, add the onion and garlic, and sauté a couple minutes. Next, add the ground turkey and continue to cook 7-10 minutes or until meat is browned. Then, add the sweet potato, chili powder, cumin, cinnamon, turmeric, sea salt and black pepper. Stir well to coat and cook another 1-2 minutes.
Next, add the tomatoes, chicken broth, lime juice and chocolate. Bring to a simmer and continue to cook over medium-low heat for 12-15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Taste and adjust flavor as desired and add extra broth, if needed.
Lastly, stir in the frozen kale and cook another 2-3 minutes. Serve with fresh cilantro and avocado slices, if desired.
I used this brand of 100% unsweetened dark chocolate chips.
