Turkey Chilli Con Carne

Turkey Chilli Con Carne

I’ve now been home from my North America holiday for three weeks and if there’s one thing I miss it’s Chilli Con Carne! It was available everywhere in Canada and America! This recipe is how I like to make my turkey version of Chilli Con Carni. I love to make it for dinner served with lots of steamed veggies. The leftovers are delicious for lunch the next day. It’s a lovely hot comfort food, perfect for us Aussies who are right now in the heart of winter.

Serves 4


1 tbs coconut oil
1 onion, diced
1 red capsicum, diced
2 tsp garlic, minced
500g turkey mince
1/4 tsp chilli powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp dried oregano
2 large tomatoes diced
1 cup chicken or vegetable stock
140g tomato paste
400g can red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Heat the oil in a large pan or pot on medium heat. Add the onion, capsicum and garlic and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Increase the heat to high and cook the mince for 5 minutes, breaking up any lumps with a wooden spoon.
  3. Add the herbs, tomatoes, stock and tomato paste and bring to the boil.
  4. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. Add the kidney beans and season with salt and pepper. Heat through for 5 minutes before serving.


  • You can increase the amount of chilli powder if you like spicy food.
  • If turkey mince is unavailable, substitute with chicken mince.
