Gobble up some Turkey Chili!

I didn't know I could make -or would even like- turkey chili. But I knew I had to do something with the turkey leftovers from Thanksgiving. So why not? I asked my good friend Google how someone would even go about it. I found a recipe that I could use as a guideline and went to work. It turned out something like this.

8oz can of tomato sauce*

10oz can diced tomatoes with green chilis

15oz can of black beans, drained and washed

2 cups frozen corn

approximately a pound of turkey

Chili Seasoning Mix

Season to taste

*The recipe I found called for 1 8 ounce can of tomato sauce. My instinct was to ignore the instructions and get a bigger can for a juicy chili. Instead, I followed the instructions and ending up adding at least 8 ounces of water.

Since I just had to cut up my leftover turkey into chunks, I added everything to a crock pot all at once and put it on low. That just might make it the easiest chili I've ever made, since I didn't have to brown anything on the stove. I found that the Chili seasoning didn't have quite enough UMPF for my taste so I jazzed it up a little with what I had around. Admittedly, it might be more of a 'stew' than a 'chili' but whatever you call's delicious!

Turkey chili is my favorite. I prefer turkey to ground beef actually.

That sounds utterly scrumdiddlyumptious! We have left over chili con carne on pizza tonight because we too are using up what is left in the freezer and house.

I don't have any turkey, but I think I'm due for another pot of chili. Maybe I'll use chicken.

That sounds like a great thing to make with left over Thanksgiving turkey. Yum, Yum!
