Spicy Turkey & Bean Chili

In 20 minutes, I made this delicious stew. It is very simple and perfect for a cool, fall day using many ingredients already on hand in the pantry. If you have extra time, homemade corn muffins would be a great accompaniment to the spiciness of the dish.

1-2 Tbs olive oil
1 med red onion, chopped
1 poblano pepper, chopped, seeded
3 garlic cloves, minced
1lb ground turkey or ground chicken breast
1 Tbs red chile powder
2 Tbs tomato paste
2 tsp dried oregano 
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 can great northern beans, drained and rinsed
1 can diced tomatoes, undrained
2 cups chicken or vegetable broth
Garnish-fresh cilantro and lime wedges

Heat olive oil in dutch oven and add onion, poblano, garlic and turkey. Saute for about 6-8 minutes or until turkey is cooked through, stirring frequently in order to crumble the meat. 
Add tomato paste, the remaining seasonings, beans, diced tomatoes, and broth. Bring to boil. 
Reduce heat, and simmer for about 10 minutes. Ladle stew into bowls and serve with lime and fresh cilantro.
