Frank's Red Hot Turkey Chili | Recipe

A coworker had been bragging about this chili recipe she's been eating... so I made her give me the recipe. Oh my it's soooo delicious. She found the recipe online somewhere, altered it and handed it to me. I then altered it some more... so, I'm taking claim that it's now my recipe (and the original is on a piece of paper, so it's definitely mine now).

Get ready to have your mouth on fire. If you like super hot, add more Frank's Red Hot. If you like medium hot... this recipe is perfect for you. If you can't take any heat... you might want to avoid at all costs. Holy it's yummy, but it sure does have some heat. Ready for the best chili recipe ever.*

*Disclaimer: This chili recipe is the best recipe ever in my opinion. Others opinions may claim it as delicious, absolutely amazing, can't live without it, best they've ever eaten. But, my claim is best chili recipe ever. Kapeesh? Kapeesh.

Here goes.

Frank's Red Hot Turkey Chili Recipe

1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp butter
1 lb ground turkey
1 large carrot, peeled and finely chopped
3 stalks celery, finely chopped
1 large onion, chopped
5 cloves garlic, chopped
2 1/2 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp ground cumin
1 tbsp ground paprika
3/4 cup Frank's Red Hot Sauce
2 (15 oz) cans tomato sauce
1 (28 oz) can crushed tomatoes 
1 (19 oz) can red kidney beans, drained
1 (19 oz) can white kidney beans, drained
1 (10 oz) can mushrooms
1 (341 ml) can of corn

Heat olive oil and butter in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add turkey and cook until no longer pink, about 10 minutes. Stir in the carrot, celery, onion, garlic, chili powder, cumin, paprika, salt and pepper. Cook until the onion is translucent and the vegetables are beginning to soften, 3 to 4 more minutes.

Stir in hot sauce, tomato sauce, crushed tomatoes, mushrooms, corn, white kidney beans and red kidney beans. Bring to a boil. Turn heat to medium-low and let simmer for about 1 hour, or until the vegetables are tender and the flavors have blended.

Now grab some good old mozzarella cheese and greek yogurt and you're ready to go. Don't say I didn't warn you about the heat or the absolute goodness of this chili. It's delicious. Okay I know I already said that. What are you waiting for, let's eat!
