Jan is on a soft food diet—nothing where she needs to bite something off—and she decided that chili with small bits of vegetables and meat would fit the bill. Although I would prefer beef or pork chili, she has asked for ground turkey. Turkey is a rather bland meat so I decided to spice it up with some chili powder.
Karl’s Turkey Chili Powder
½ Tbs. Chile California
½ Tbs. Chile Nuevo Mexico
½ Tbs. Hungarian Paprika
½ Tbs. Chile Pasilla
1 tsp. cumin seeds, toasted and ground
1 tsp. coriander seeds, toasted and ground
1 tsp. Mexican oregano
½ tsp. Kosher salt
¼ tsp. cinnamon
¼ tsp. garlic powder
¼ tsp. onion powder
¼ tsp. black pepper, cracked
1. If you are not using pre-ground cumin and coriander, toast the seeds in a dry pan and grind them in a spice grinder.
Tip: I use a dedicated coffee grinder.
2. Add the rest of the ingredients to the spice grinder and pulse to mix thoroughly.
