Turkey Chili

I really wasn’t into the Super Bowl AT ALL, but I wanted to be somewhat festive and make chili.  So, I found a delicious recipe from my grandmom’s old cookbook, adapted it a bit, and it turned out fabulous!

*Turkey Chili*  

(originally from Cooking Light 1988)

  • 1 pound raw ground turkey
  • 1 medium bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 small onion, seeded and chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. minced garlic
  • 1 vegetable bouillon cube
  • 1 ½ cups water
  • 1 cup cooked pinto beans
  • 1 (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes, undrained
  • 3 oz. tomato paste
  • 1 ½ Tbsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Place turkey in a large Dutch oven over medium heat.  Cook 5 minutes or until browned, stirring to crumble.  Drain turkey in a colander.
  2. Add bell pepper, onion, and garlic; sauté until tender.  Add turkey to Dutch oven.  Dissolve bouillon in water; add to Dutch oven with beans and the rest of the ingredients.  Cover and bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
  3. Ladle hot chili into bowls.  (We had our chili over egg noodles, which was delicious!)

Are you a fan of chili? 

Do you like avocados?  If so, how do you eat  them?  I need to start incorporating them into my diet but don’t really know how to eat them or what to eat them with.  Thanks!

    And regarding avocados, I hate them, but my mom loves eating them on turkey sandwiches or in guacamole haha
