Without ground beef, our Slow Cooker Turkey Chili needed depth of flavor. Adding chicken broth and soy sauce provided “meatiness,” while canned chipotle chiles added a complex smoky taste. For an extra flavor boost, we toasted the spices in a dry skillet. Because the chicken broth thinned the chili, we thickened the stew back up by draining the diced tomatoes and stirring in tomato paste. Mixing a panade (a paste of bread and milk) into the turkey kept it from drying out, but we swapped the milk for soy sauce, resulting in tender pieces with a “beefy” kick.
