Before starting, wash and dry all produce. Core, then cut pepper into 1/2-inch pieces. Roughly chop cilantro. Peel, then cut onion into 1/4-inch pieces. Peel, then mince or grate garlic. Pat turkey dry with paper towels. Cut turkey into 1-inch pieces.


Heat a large pot over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then peppers, squash and onions. Cook, stirring occasionally, until veggies soften, 5-6 min. Season with salt and pepper.


Add turkey and garlic to the pot with veggies. Cook, stirring often, until turkey is golden-brown, 3-4 min. Add Mexican Seasoning and tomato sauce base. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 1 min.


Add crushed tomatoes and 1/2 cup water (dbl for 4 ppl). Stir to combine, then bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until chili thickens slightly and turkey is cooked through, 5-6 min. Season with salt and pepper. (TIP: If you have time, keep it simmering on the stove for longer! It gets better the longer it cooks!)


While chili cooks, thinly slice jalapeño, removing seeds for less heat. (NOTE: We suggest using gloves when prepping jalapeño!) Add jalapeños, vinegar, 2 tbsp water and 1 tsp sugar (dbl both for 4 ppl) to a small pot. Season with salt. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Simmer, stirring often, until sugar dissolves, 1-2 min. Remove pot from heat. Transfer jalapeños, including liquid, to a medium bowl. Place in the fridge to cool.


Divide turkey chili between bowls. Top with cilantro and pickled jalapeños.
