making a big pot of homemade chili with red pinto beans and very lean ground beef, got me thinking if this is good muscle building food or not.

This reminds me of the Sopranos episode where Medow made chili for her and her boyfriend in the middle of the summer (they were living in a tiny little apartment in NY with no A/C).  Just found it funny cooking something like that in the middle of summer ~ seems like a winter food.  Of course it's fine, depending on what you put in it.

Beef and/or venison, beans, and tomatoes – yes, chili is a highly nutritious and often overlooked choice of cuisine.
Homemade can ensure selection of better quality ingredients.

It's also one of my favorite foods to eat.

Yep, you can doctor it anyway you like.

The stuff in the can is probably decent, but I’ll take homemade any day.
Turkey sounds good – gonna have to try that this fall.

I like my chili hot as hell, so I always dice up a couple jalapenos into it.  It ain't chili if you ain't sweatin'

Here's a quality recipe I've used in the past with ground turkey. It's damn good!

1 T oregano
2 T paprika
6 T Chili powder, light
4 T cumin
4 T beef bouillon (instant, crushed)
10 cloves garlic, finely chopped or powder for substitute
1 tsp parsley or cilantro
4 Cups water
1/2 C olive oil
4 lb extra lean chuck, chili grind (substitute turkey/venison if needed)
2 lb extra lean pork, chili grind
1 lb extra lean chuck, cut into 1/4" cubes
2 large red onions, finely chopped
2 cans Bush's Best Dark Red Kidney Beans
2 cans Bush's Best Black Beans
24 oz crushed tomatoes
In a large pot, add paprika, oregano, chili powder, cumin, beef
bouillon, garlic, chopped onion, and 4 cups water. Let simmer low heat.
In a separate skillet, brown meat with FAJITA seasoning in 1 lb. or 1
1/2 lb. batches with
olive oil. Drain and add to simmering spices. Continue until all meat is
done.
Add water as needed.
Simmer 2 hours medium heat.
Add crushed tomatoes.
Add salt to taste.
Simmer 45 min.
Makes 1 pot.
