A satisfying chili with hearty, slightly sweet flavor from Zevia Cherry Cola!
  • 1/2 medium red onion diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt + more to taste
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 chipotle chile en adobo chopped, plus 1 tablespoon sauce from the can
  • 1 pound lean ground turkey beef or chicken work too
  • 1 can Zevia Cherry Cola*
  • 2 14.5 ounce cans diced fire-roasted tomatoes (with juices)
  • 1 15.5 ounce can dark red kidney beans, drained
  • Optional for serving:
  • avocado slices or guacamole
  • fresh cilantro
  • cheese
  • sour cream
  1. Spray a large pot or dutch oven with cooking spray and over medium to high heat sauté onion and garlic for 2-3 mins.
  2. Add salt, chili powder, chipotle chile, chile sauce and ground turkey. Break up pieces of turkey as it browns.
  3. Once meat is almost browned, add Zevia and tomatoes.
  4. Let chili simmer for about 15 minutes and then add beans for the last five minutes of cooking, so they can heat through.
  5. This chili is very flavorful. Reduce the spiciness by using only one chipotle chile in the recipe.
Recipe Notes

*Any Zevia Cola flavor will work. I let me Zevia sit open, overnight, so it wasn't quite so fizzy.
