Prepare in Advance 

One of the best tips for making turkey chili is to prepare it in advance. While it may be tempting to cook it on the day of serving, the flavors will be enhanced if you prepare it a day ahead of time. This allows the ingredients to meld together and creates a more complex flavor profile. 

Cook as Indicated and Refrigerate Overnight 

When preparing your turkey chili, make sure to follow the recipe carefully. This will ensure that you get the right balance of flavors and textures. Once you’ve finished cooking, refrigerate the chili overnight. This helps with the thickening process and allows the flavors to develop even further. 

Simmer Slowly 

On the day of serving, take the chili out of the fridge and heat it up slowly. The best way to do this is to simmer it in a slow cooker or soup pot on low heat. This will maximize flavor absorption and allow the chili to reduce to its intended thick, rich consistency. Make sure to stir occasionally to prevent sticking. 

Add Liquid Slowly 

If you’re cooking your chili on the day of serving, make sure to add the liquid slowly. This is because reducing time may be limited. If you add all the liquid at once, the chili may become too watery, and the flavors won’t be as concentrated. 

Reduce Liquid 

Adding less liquid than called for in the recipe will not adversely affect the taste of your turkey chili. This will help to create a thicker, heartier dish that is perfect for dipping or pouring over nachos. 

Suggested Toppings 

For an extra burst of flavor, try serving your turkey chili with some delicious toppings, including chopped red or green onions, sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese, bacon bits, and jalapeño slices. You can also try pouring your chili over tortilla chips for delicious Turkey Chili Nachos! 

Making the perfect turkey chili requires a bit of preparation and attention to detail, but by following these tips, you’ll be able to create a dish that is rich, hearty, and bursting with flavor. So, the next time you’re missing Deer Valley, try making a batch of turkey chili to hold you over until your next trip to Park City!
