Turn those leftovers into a pot of pure comfort! This hearty turkey chili is full of flavor and spice and makes use of those Thanksgiving leftovers!
Heat oil over medium heat in a large, heavy bottomed pot or dutch oven until hot.
Add pepper and onion and saute until beginning to soften, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook another 1-2 minutes.
Add the spices, sugar, cocoa powder, salt, pepper, and stir well. Cook for 2 mins. Mix in the tomato paste and cook 2 more mins.
Add the tomatoes, sauce, chiles, beer, and stock. Stir in the cooked chicken and beans.
Simmer, uncovered, for at least 30 minutes. The chili should reduce a bit and have a nice thick consistency. If you have more time to let it cook, by all means let it simmer. It tastes even better the longer it cooks. Add a splash of stock if it gets too thick.
Stir the lime juice (and hot sauce is using). Season to taste with salt and pepper. Ladle into bowls and top with garnishes if desired.
