Chipotle Turkey Chili

Is this a soup or a chili?  I don’t really know, but I do know that it tastes really good.  Especially on a cold day.  I like to have corn bread with this, but cheese quesadillas are also nice.  Don’t confuse the chipotle Mexican cooking sauce with the can of chipotles in sauce.  The latter is much stronger in taste.  The chipotle sauce I like is made by Herdez.

1 Pd. Ground Turkey
1 Onion, minced
4 oz. Green Chilis
1 C. Chipotle Mexican Cooking Sauce
15 oz. Black Beans, drained and rinsed
1 ½ C. Frozen Corn
15 oz. Diced Tomatoes
4 C. Chicken Broth
8 oz. Sour Cream
Vegetable Oil
Saute onion in vegetable oil over medium-low heat until softened and translucent. Add ground turkey and chilis. Cook until completely done breaking up into small pieces. Add remaining ingredients except the sour cream. Simmer on low for about an hour to let the flavors develop. Stir in sour cream. Heat through. Serve with lime and/or cilantro if desired.
