           -chopped
      6 oz Tomato paste
      1 tb Sugar
      2    Bay leaves
      1 lg Green bell pepper; cut
           -in 3/4" dice
      1 lg Yellow or red bell pepper
           -cut into 3/4-inch dice
    1/2 c  Fresh cilantro; finely chop
      1 sm Red onion; finely chop
           Cornbread for serving
 
  Place the pinto beans in a medium saucepan and add 6 cups of water.
  Bring to a boil over moderately high heat and boil for 3 minutes.
  Remove from the heat and let stand for 1 hour.
  
  In a medium bowl, soak the ancho and guajillo chiles in 3 cups of hot
  water until softened, about 20 minutes. Pour off the soaking liquid,
  reserving 1-1/2 cups. Stem and seed the chilies and transfer them to
  a food processor or blender with the reserved soaking liquid. Puree
  until smooth. Pass the puree through a fine strainer into a small
  bowl.
  
  Heat 3 tablespoons of the oil in a large enameled cast-iron casserole.
  Season the turkey with salt and pepper. Add some of the meat to the
  casserole in a single layer and cook over moderately high heat until
  well browned all over, about 4 minutes.  Transfer the cooked turkey
  to a large plate and brown the remaining meat in batches.
  
  Heat 1 more tablespoon of the olive oil in the casserole. Add the
  onion and garlic and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally,
  until translucent, about 3 minutes.  Add the cumin, curry, thyme,
  cinnamon and nutmeg and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 1 to 2
  minutes. Add the chicken stock and bring to a boil over moderately
  high heat. Boil until reduced by 1/4, about 6 minutes.
  
  Return the turkey to the casserole and add the pureed chiles, chopped
  tomato, tomato paste, sugar and bay leave. Bring to a boil over
  moderately high heat. Lower the theat and simmer until the turkey is
  tender, about 1 hour.  Discard the bay leaves.
  
  Meanwhile, drain the pinto beans and return them to the pan. Add 6
  more cups of water and bring to a boil over moderately high heat.
  Lower the heat, cover partially and simmer until tender, about 1
  hour. Drain the beans and add them to the chili.
  
  Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet until
  almost smoking.  Add the green and yellow bell peppers and cook over
  moderately high heat, stirring, until browned, about 3 minutes.
  Transfer to paper towels to drain, then stir them into the chili.
  
  Stir in half the cilantro into the chili and season with salt. Spoon
  the chili into bowls.  Garnish with the red onion and the remaiing
  cilantro and serve with corn bread.
