How to Make It

Step 1    

In a large stainless-steel pot, cook the bacon until crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Pour off all but 1 tablespoon of fat from the pot.

Step 2    

Reduce the heat to moderately low. Add the onion to the pot and cook, stirring, until translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the chili powder, cocoa, Tabasco sauce, oregano, salt, pepper, tomatoes, and broth. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes.

Step 3    

Add the black beans and turkey to the pot. Simmer for 5 minutes. Stir in the spinach and the bacon. Cook until the spinach just wilts, about 1 minute.

Notes

Variations
Use smoked turkey in place of plain.

Substitute 12/3 cups drained and rinsed kidney, pinto, or cannellini beans for the black beans.

Suggested Pairing

You need a lusty red wine with plenty of spiciness and fruit flavor to stand up to this powerful soup. That describes Zinfandel to a T, so try one here.
