  • 2 poblano chiles
  • 1 jalapeno
  • Olive oil
  • 1 medium red onion or 1 ¼ cup, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 red pepper chopped
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp + 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp ancho chili powder
  • 1 1/2 lbs ground turkey
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 398 ml can fire roasted or diced tomatoes
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 540 ml can white kidney beans
  • Salt and pepper
  • Aluminum foil
  • Toppers [chopped]: bell pepper tomato, red onion, avocado, cilantro, fresh or pickled jalapeno, zucchini, jicama, crushed gluten free taco chips


  • Preheat oven to 425F. Drizzle olive oil on poblano and jalapeno peppers, place on parchment lined baking sheet and roast until blistered, about 35 minutes, turning regularly. Remove to bowl and cover with aluminum foil. Let sit for 10 minutes to steam. Peel skin by holding stem and pulling skin off. Cut out membrane and toss seeds. Cut into large pieces. Set aside.
  • Over medium high heat add olive oil to pot and toss in your onions. Turn heat down and cook for about 10 minutes. When onions are soft, add garlic, cook for 1-2 minutes.
  • Stir in red pepper. After a few minutes mix in the oregano, cumin, both chili powders and a pinch of salt and pepper. Add your turkey and cook until browned.
  • Make a hole in the middle of your pot by spreading your ingredients to the outer edges. Add tomato paste in the middle stirring until combined with all ingredients. Drop in diced tomatoes and chicken broth stirring to scrape up any bits on the bottom. Let simmer 15 minutes.
  • Stir in beans, poblano and jalapeno peppers. Let cook an additional 10-15 minutes. Taste and season with salt and pepper as needed. Pour into bowls and garnish with your favourite toppers.
