  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, chopped
  • 500g ground beef or turkey (optional, can be omitted for a vegetarian version)
  • 1 can (400g) diced tomatoes
  • 1 can (400g) kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup corn (fresh or frozen)
  • 2 cups mixed fresh fruits (like diced pineapple, mango, and apple)
  • 1-2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, chopped (adjust to taste)
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup chicken or vegetable broth
  • Optional toppings: chopped fresh cilantro, diced avocado, sour cream, shredded cheese


  1. Cook the Base: Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, and bell peppers. Cook until the vegetables are soft, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add Meat (if using): Increase heat to medium-high and add the ground beef or turkey. Cook until browned, breaking it up with a spoon. If you’re making a vegetarian version, skip this step.
  3. Combine Ingredients: Stir in diced tomatoes, kidney beans, corn, and the mixed fruits. Add the chipotle peppers, chili powder, cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper.
  4. Simmer: Pour in the broth and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, for about 30 minutes. The chili should thicken and the flavors will meld together.
  5. Serve: Adjust seasonings to taste. Serve hot with your choice of toppings like fresh cilantro, diced avocado, sour cream, or shredded cheese.
