Paleo turkey chili, a great cold weather meal

After yet another day with temperatures remaining in the 30s, I decided to make a nice warming dinner. I had to cook this chili quickly, but I can imagine that letting it simmer for hours would only make it taste better. I served this over some delicious shredded zucchini and summer squash, that I sauteed in a pan with some olive oil. I also kept our chili somewhat mild, since we are feeding our little men. But feel free to spice it up with a bit more chili powder.

Paleo Turkey Chili

olive oil
3 lbs ground turkey
3 small onions, minced
10-12 cloves garlic, minced
3 tsp chili powder
2 1/4 tsp cumin
1 3/4 tsp paprika
3/4 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp black pepper
sea salt to taste
1 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes

Heat large skillet or pot over medium heat. Swirl with oil. Add turkey. Saute until partially browned. Add onion and garlic. Saute and crumble the meat until mostly browned. Add seasonings and tomatoes. Stir to combine. Allow to cook for 1-2 hours (at a minimum), keep covered and stir occasionally. Be sure to taste and adjust seasoning to your own preference. Serve and enjoy!
