Turkey & Chicken Chili with Pearl Onions


Comfort food on the lighter side!  This is a wonderful hearty meal, but uses ground chicken and turkey instead of beef.  Lots of flavour and spice!


Ingredients


1 pound ground chicken
1 pound ground turkey
12-15 pearl onions
2 cups hydrated kidney beans (or 1 can)
2 cups hydrated black beans (or 1 can)
2 cans diced tomatoes
2 cloves garlic, diced
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 teaspoon cumin
1 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (or to taste)
salt & pepper to taste


Directions


In a large pot heat vegetable oil over medium heat.  When it starts to smoke add onions and garlic.  Saute until lightly browned.

Add chicken, turkey, cumin, chili powder, cayenne pepper, salt & pepper to the pot.  Continue to saute until meat is browned.

Add tomatoes and beans.  Allow to cook for 45-60 minutes.
