Turkey Chili FAQs
You can overcook turkey chili in several ways. For instance, you could overcook the meat, making it dry or burn the sauce by letting it simmer for too long. If you follow our Easy White Turkey Chili recipe, your chili will be ready to serve after the meat is at an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit and the soup reaches your preferred thickness.
If you need to let your chili simmer and thicken for more than 30 minutes, avoid overcooking the ground turkey meat by either waiting to add it in or by removing it from the pot. You can add and stir your turkey pieces back into the pot after the soup has reduced to your preferred consistency.
Turkey chili can have a soupy or thick consistency. If you prefer a thick chili, allow it to simmer and reduce until it reaches your preferred consistency. Alternatively, you can thicken the chili quicker by adding some half and half or heavy cream. Besides thickening your chili, adding cream will enhance its flavor and make it richer.
Another ingredient you can add to thicken your chili is tomato paste. However, note that adding cream or tomato paste to your chili can change its flavor profile. If you want to thicken your chili without changing the flavor, we recommend using cornstarch or all-purpose flour.
Turkey chili’s primary advantage over beef chili is the lower fat content. For instance, our 93% Lean / 7% Fat Ground Turkey has 22 grams of protein and only 8 grams of fat. The lower fat content as compared to ground beef makes ground turkey a great option for making chili.
If your priority is flavor, follow our Easy White Turkey Chili recipe to create a healthy dish that does not compromise on taste.
