A delicious departure from the the Thanksgiving standard, this hearty chili is fast and full of smoky-spicy flavor. Keep some sour cream, shredded cheddar or Monterey jack on hand for a cool garnish. Heat seekers can try two to three chopped chipotles, but you may wish to omit the chilies altogether if you'll be feeding delicate palates.

This recipe is intended to help you use cooked turkey leftovers; However, if you don't have any leftover turkey, you can order raw turkey pieces and bake them for use in this recipe.
