Black Sage Three Bean Turkey Chili Recipe

Cold fall nights are perfect for curling up with a warm bowl of delicious chili.  This Black Sage Three Bean Turkey Chili Recipe will keep you warm all week.  Our chili recipe is easy to throw together, and you can leave it on the stove or in a crock pot until you're ready to eat.  Chili is the best because you can add exactly what you love and leave out anything you don't.  Vegetarian? Skip the turkey.  Like it hot?  Make it spicy!  Only use your favorite beans and spices- this is real comfort food!

Anytime you cook with tomatoes or tomato paste, honey is perfect to balance the acidity.  Instead of throwing sugar on tomatoes, add honey for a more sophisticated flavor.  We're using three ounces of Black Sage Honey in this recipe for a flavorful, earthy Turkey Chili Recipe.
