Chili made with Red Gold Tomatoes

In the newspaper I found for a advertisement for Red Gold Tomatoes. It said that if you went to their website at redgold.com/stl, you could get a coupon for one can of tomatoes free! Now, with the weather getting cooler I always like to make lots of chili and other slow cooker meals. Most of them have tomatoes so I immediately went to the website to get the coupon. It turns out that it was a coupon for "Buy 2, Get 1 Free" and that was fine with me. I printed the coupon and found two recipes on their site that sounded good. One was for Chipotle Chicken Soup and I wanted to try their new Petite Diced Tomatoes with Chipotle. Also I found their recipe for Red Gold Chili. Unfortunately, both of the stores which the coupon was good for didn't have the tomatoes with chipotle yet as it is new. So I got my free can, after buying two others, and planned to make the Red Gold Chili. I didn't have all of the ingredients but here is my recipe for how I adapted it this morning.
Red Gold Chili

adapted from

1 pound ground turkey
1 large onion, chopped

salt and black pepper, to taste

2 tablespoons ancho chili powder
1 tablespoon pasilla chili powder

1 tablespoon cumin

1 teaspoon coriander

1 tablespoon cocoa

1 (27 ounce) can chili beans, mild sauce

1 (14.5 ounce) can black beans

2 (14.5 ounce) cans Red Gold Diced Tomatoes, Chili Ready with Onions

1 (4.5 ounce) can chopped green chilies

1 1/2 cups vegetable juice

1. Brown the ground turkey and chopped onions in a large pot. Drain off any accumulated fat.

2. Add salt, pepper, ancho chili powder, pasilla chili powder, cumin, coriander and cocoa, mixing well.

3. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well. Bring to a boil; then reduce to a simmer for at least 30 minutes.

Had I already replaced my old slow cooker that had stopped working, I would have put the chili in there in the morning and it would be ready for dinner after work.
Until then, I can't wait to reheat this chili tonight!

That looks sooooo yummy! But mine Mummy says I cannot have it because it may make flames shoot out from my front and back ends. You really think it's going to?
