Recipe Ingredients for Lamb & Chickpea Chili

1 tablespoon canola oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 large red bell pepper, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
16 ounces ground lamb
3/4 teaspoon salt
4 plum tomatoes, chopped
15 ounce chickpeas, rinsed
2 tablespoons harissa
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

Recipe Directions for Lamb & Chickpea Chili

Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, bell pepper and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until beginning to soften, about 3 minutes. Add lamb, turkey and salt and cook, stirring and breaking up with a spoon, until no longer pink, about 4 minutes. Add tomatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, until they have released their liquid and are beginning to break down, about 4 minutes more.
