Step 1

1. Drain the beans and put them in a large saucepan with the seasoned tomatoes. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Simmer until the beans are heated through and flavors have blended, about 7 to 10 minutes.

2. Heat a frying pan over medium heat and crumble the turkey or beef into it. Season with the salt, pepper, paprika, and chili powder. Cook until browned, stirring occasionally, about 7 to 10 minutes.

3. Stir the seasoned meat into the beans.

4. Divide the chili among 4 bowls. Top each with cheese, then sour cream, and stick a cilantro sprig in the middle.
