This recipe makes about 8 servings.
1 tbsb olive oil
3/4 lb Ground Beef (85/15, grass fed is ideal)
3/4 lb Ground Turkey
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 red bell peppers, chopped
2 green bell peppers, chopped
2 yellow onions, chopped
1 jalapeno pepper, diced
3 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp smoked paprika
1 tbsp ground cumin
1 tbsp chipotle chili powder
2 tsp dried oregano
24 oz can diced tomatoes
salt and black pepper
1) In large heavy-bottomed Dutch oven (or big pot), heat the olive oil over medium-high heat and add the garlic, onions and bell peppers. Cook until they are tender and the onions start to get transluscent (5-7 min).
2) Add in all of the spices (chili powder, cumin, chipotle chili powder, oregano, and smoked paprika and season with some salt and pepper) and cook until you start to really smell the seasonings (3 min).
3) Add the beef and break it up with a wooden spoon. Once beef is broken up and beginning to brown, add the turkey. Break up with wooden spoon like the beef, and brown, until no longer pink, around 4 minutes.
That's it! Throw into bowls (or top a sweet potato) and chow down!
