In a large stockpot cook the onions until translucent. Add the green pepper and cook for another 2 minutes. Add the garlic, chili powder, and cumin. Cook for another minute or two.

Add the tomatoes, tomato paste, stock, beans, oregano, salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer and reduce heat to low.

At this point cook your ground turkey in another pan until browned. Once the meat is fully cooked, add the turkey to your stockpot. Cook the chili for an hour on simmer.

Pour your chili into bowls and garnish with cheese, sour cream, and chips.
