Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

Place the anchos and stock in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a low boil, and then simmer over low heat to reconstitute.

Heat 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil in a large Dutch oven or large, deep skillet over medium-high heat. Add the bacon and brown a few minutes, and then remove the bacon to a plate with a slotted spoon.

Add the ground turkey and brown and crumble the meat, and season with salt and pepper. Add the onions, garlic, chipotle in adobo, paprika, cumin, coriander, cocoa powder, and cinnamon. Stir and cook to soften, 10 minutes more. Add the tomato paste, and stir 1 minute. Deglaze the pan with the beer.

Puree the anchos and stock.

Add the ancho puree to the chili along with the reserved bacon. Simmer over low heat to thicken 20 to 30 minutes. Cool and store for a make-ahead meal.

To reheat: Reheat over a medium flame on the stovetop, stirring occasionally. Serve with the garnishes of your choice.
