To get this chili started, heat 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil in a large heavy pot over medium-high heat. Add ½ large onion (chopped) and 2 large jalapeno peppers (seeded and chopped) and cook, stirring until onion is translucent. Add 4 medium garlic cloves (chopped) and stir for approximately 1 more minute.
Add 1 (20-ounce) package of extra-lean turkey breast and cook for about 5 to 7 minutes, breaking turkey up with a wooden spoon until cooked and crumbled. Add 1 (6-ounce) can of tomato paste and stir until well blended, for about another minute.
Stir in 3 cups grape juice and next 8 ingredients listed in recipe below. Cook over medium heat for approximately 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until chili is slightly thickened and onions are tender. Serve topped with grated Cabot Lite50 Sharp Cheddar Cheese.
