Did everyone watch the superbowl?!?! Well if you didn’t, some crazy unexpected plays happened and Denver got blown out with a final score of 43-8. I know I was routing for Seattle because I believe this is their first, and I really do like Russell Wilson. Anyway, since it was superbowl weekend, what better way to celebrate than with good friends, a nice big bowl of homemade turkey chili, and a good bottle of beer? I don’t think I can think of a better way. Here is the recipe:
Homemade Turkey Chili
1 package of lean ground turkey (I used Jenny-O)
1 can of black beans
1 can of white kidney beans
1 small can of yellow corn
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 large TBSPN of minced garlic
Onion (I diced the amount I would like. It is up to you)
1 can of crushed tomatoes (I used Redpack Basil Oregano and Garlic)
1 &1/2 cups of water
1 TSPN of unsweetened cocoa powder
1&1/2 TSPN of chili powder
1/2 TSPN of garlic powder
1/2 TSPN of paprika
1 TBSPN of oregano AND parsley
2 TSPN of reduced sodium soy sauce
Black pepper (I like a lot.)
Step 1: Heat olive oil in a large sauce pan over a low/medium heat.
Step 2: Add ground turkey, cooking until a lightish brown. Stir to break up the meat while it cooks.
Step 3: Add onion, pepper, and garlic. Cook until onion starts to turn translucent and peppers are tender. Don’t forget to stir. No burning allowed.
Step 4: Mix in beans, corn, spices, and canned tomatoes. Add the water and stir to combine.
Step 5: Bring chili to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 45 mins to about an hour.
Step 6: Enjoy!!
Pairs well with: Hint of Lime Tostitos, Corn Bread, Pumpernickel and/or Rye bread, and beer of course. (I had Shocktop…yummy)
