Hotly Contested Election Chili

Hotly Contested Election Chili
Adapted from the Obama Family Chili recipe
8 servings

Several cloves of garlic, chopped (I used 2)
1 large sweet onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
1 jalapeno pepper, finely chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 pounds ground turkey or beef
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground oregano
1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/4 teaspoon ground basil
1 tablespoon chili powder
2 tablespoons of hot sauce
A splash (2 or 3 tablespoons) of Worcestershire sauce
Salt and pepper to taste
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
Several tomatoes, depending on size (I used 5), chopped
2 15.5 oz cans red kidney beans 

Saute the onions, green and red pepper and garlic in olive oil over medium heat until they’re soft.

Add the ground turkey or hamburger to the pan and brown the meat, stirring occasionally.

In a large pot over low heat, combine the tomatoes, jalapeno and spices and bring to a simmer. Let the tomatoes cook down a bit, then add in the ground meat/pepper/onion mixture. Throw the kidney beans into the mix, add in the red wine vinegar, and let it all simmer at low to medium heat, stirring occasionally.

I served the chili over elbow macaroni, but you can also serve over rice. Try topping it with some shredded cheese. Green onions and/or sour cream would taste great, too.
