How to make it:
- In a large sauce pot, heat oil over medium-high heat and saute bell peppers, onion, and habanero pepper and season with paprika, cumin, oregano, black pepper, salt.
- Cook for about 8-10 minutes, until translucent, and then add tomato paste and chicken stock. Stir until well combined, and add TOSTITOS® Medium Chunky Salsa, beans, and shredded turkey. Give the chili one last stir before covering to develop a rich flavor. Cook with the lid on for about 30 minutes on medium-low heat.
- In a baking dish, lay down ¼ cup of the chili mixture, TOSTITOS® original chips, a mixture of cheddar and mozzarella, and repeat 3 times for a layered effect. For the final layer, add a layer of TOSTITOS® chips, cheese, and bake for an additional 20 minutes at 350 degrees until the cheese is melted. Allow the chili to cool slightly before slicing and serving.
- To serve, plate 1 cup of chili in a shallow bowl. Garnish chili with a dollop of sour cream, and salsa. Around the chili lay down chopped lettuce, fresh tomatoes, and avocados.
