Beer and Honey Chili
by stephania stanley

What you need:
1 ½ lbs ground turkey meat
1 ½ bottles of beer (ambers are great)
¼ cup honey
2 28 oz cans of crushed tomatoes
2 6 oz cans of tomato paste
1 16 oz black beans, rinsed and drained
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbs chili powder
1 ½ tsp cumin
1 tsp cayenne
1 Tbsp olive oil
Grated Parmesan (optional)

What to do:
In a large soup pot, heat olive oil over medium-high heat.  Add onions and sauté for three minutes.  Add garlic and sauté for an additional three minutes.  Next add the turkey meat.  Mix often to ensure meat is cooked thoroughly and sauté for about ten minutes or until meat is cooked through.  Carefully pour fat out of pot (making sure to leave onions, garlic, and turkey in the pot).  Return pot to heat.  Add one bottle of beer, honey, crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, chili powder, cumin, and cayenne to turkey mixture.  Stir to mix and let it simmer for about 30 minutes.  Now it’s time to add the remaining beer, but add to taste.  Simmer for an additional 30 minutes and then add black beans.  Stir to mix and simmer for a final 30 minutes.  Serve in big bowls and garnish with grated Parmesan.  Serves 8-10.
