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 it...it's delicious!
