In a large, heavy-bottomed stockpot, cook ground turkey over medium heat. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking and to break turkey into smaller pieces. (Lightly spraying with oil and salting the bottom of the pan also will help prevent sticking.) When turkey is cooked, drain off and discard all fat and liquid.
Add onion, bell peppers, garlic, tomatoes, tomato sauce, chipotle powder, chili powder, cumin, thyme, salt and water. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and cook 15 to 20 minutes, until veggies have slightly softened.
Remove from heat and stir in kidney beans and brown sugar. Add pepper, to taste.
