I really enjoy this time of year. The cold crisp air. The abundance of sweaters and layering of clothes. All the festivities and family gatherings. And of course the food. Food at the fair, hoilday dinners and all the comfort foods. Nothing says cold weather like comfort food. Comfort Foods are my favorite. And they are even better when It is cold!!! And there is nothing better on a cold night than a warm bowl of chili with your loved ones.
This is my favorite turkey chili recipe and it is kid tested and approved. I've given this recipe out several times and it is always a crowd pleaser....and it's even better the next day to get you through lunch. Its so easy that even the " I don't cook' people in your life can make it.
With just a few ingredients and minimal prep you are well on way to a bowl of chili and a warm full tummy.
2 tablespoons of minced garlic
1 onion diced
1 bell pepper
1 lb of ground turkey
2 teaspoons of oil
1 cup of chicken broth
1/2 teaspoon of salt
2 1/2 teaspoons of cumin
1 1/2 tablespoon of chili powder
2 15oz cans of kidney bean ( rinsed & drained)
1 28oz can of diced tomatoes
1 15oz can of sweet corn ( drained & rinsed)
*Notes before starting*
I'm a huge garlic lover and I use it A LOT....feel free to use less garlic if its not your thing or use use more if you are as obsessed as I am
Add more chili powder if you want yours with a little more spice. If you like more heat add a dash of cayenne pepper.
If your chili is too thick you can add about 1/4 cup of more broth
1. Chop your onion and pepper and preheat oil in large pot.
2. Add minced garlic. Saute on medium high heat for 2-3 minutes, then add onions and peppers and saute for an additional 3-4 minutes.
3. Add the turkey to the pot and cook until no longer pink.
4. Once turkey is cooked add the broth, diced tomatoes, beans, and corn. Add the seasonings on top of it all and give it stir and mix well.
5. Cover and bring to boil. Once it's boiling turn heat to low and simmer for 35 minutes.
6. Taste and add more seasoning if you desire.
Top chili with your favorite toppings: shredded cheese, sour cream, avocados, green onions, crackers, cilantro, tortilla chips , etc. Also you can serve with your favorite crusty bread or cornbread
I hope you enjoy. From my kitchen to yours,
