Turkey Chili Cups w/ Mango Pico de Gallo

Chili is awesome! But what could make it better? Let me think…hmm…Got it!! Fresh Mango Pico de Gallo and warm, fluffy bread cups, Excellent! Intrigued, then give it a try, it’s really simple:

1 lb lean ground turkey
2 carrots, cut lengthwise then chopped
2 green bell peppers, cored, halved and chopped
8 oz of chopped red onion
8 oz of diced green chilies
14 oz can of diced tomatoes
15 oz can of kidney beans
1 packet chili seasoning
1 canned pizza dough
10 oz of mango Pico de Gallo
8 oz of sour cream
1 tsp garlic powder
3 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper

1.       Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
2.      Next, open pizza dough, unroll onto cutting board, and cut into 8 equal parts.
3.      Now, using a cupcake pan, spray 8 spots with non-stick spray then line with dough (1 piece of dough per spot)
4.      Next, bake dough for 10 minutes.
5.      Remove dough, while still warm use a small glass (about shot glass sized) to push down the center. It will have risen during baking.
6.      Now cover to keep warm and set aside.
7.      In a large fry pan on medium-high add: oil and turkey. Cook until turkey is no longer pink, about 15 minutes.
8.     Next, add: carrots, bell peppers, onions, garlic, salt & pepper.
9.      Cook until carrots are tender. About 10 minutes.
10.  Now add: green chilies, beans, tomatoes and chili seasoning.
11.   Mix well, reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes.
12.  Now, remove cups from pan, fill with chili then top with Pico and sour cream.

These are so good! They come out perfectly cooked, a little messy but really delicious! For a little extra spice I would suggest adding crushed red pepper or some tapatio hot sauce.
This recipe makes 8 cups which serve 4. You will have lots of leftover chili, so freeze it and have another delicious meal later in the week. Well, that’s it; hope you enjoy them as much as we did!
