Six-Ingredient Harissa-Turkey Chili

Six-Ingredient Harissa-Turkey Chili

This easy weeknight chili is low on prep but big on flavor, in large part thanks to harissa powder, a fiery Tunisian blend of red chile peppers, cumin, coriander, paprika, caraway and salt. Try serving it with your favorite chili toppings such as fresh cilantro and diced red onions.

4 serves


  • 3/4 pound ground turkey (a mix of light and dark is best)
  • 1 1 large yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons harissa spice blend, plus more for serving
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can no-salt-added garbanzo beans (also called chickpeas), drained and rinsed
  • 1 (14-ounce) can no-salt-added diced tomatoes
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt



  1. Combine turkey and onion in a large skillet. Place over medium heat and cook, stirring frequently and breaking up turkey with the side of a spoon, until turkey has released most of its moisture, about 10 minutes. Raise heat to medium-high and cook, stirring constantly, until turkey and onion begin to brown, 3 to 4 minutes more. Stir in harissa and cook for 1 minute. Stir in chickpeas, tomatoes and salt. Bring to a boil, lower heat, cover and simmer until flavors blend, about 5 minutes. Serve with harissa on the side for diners to add to taste.
