There is no better time to enjoy this delicious chili then on a cold night. It is super easy! I think the original recipe came out of a magazine a long time ago. Enjoy!
Turkey & Black Bean Chili
1 pound ground turkey
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped celery
1/2 shredded carot
1 fresh hot green chili pepper (such as jalapeno) seeded and minced
(We leave this out--we like to add our own hot sauce later)
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped (we add lots more!)
1 1/2 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 28 oz. cans crushed tomatoes
2 16 oz. cans black beans, drained & rinsed
In a dutch oven over medium heat, cook the turkey, onion, celery , carrot, chili pepper if using & garlic, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon. About 6 minutes or until the meat is no longer pink. Drain off any liquid. Add chili powder, cumin, and salt. Cook & stir over medium heat for 1 minute. Stir in tomatoes & beans & bring to a boil. Reduce heat & simmer uncovered for 45 minutes-1 hour, stirring occasionally until flavors have blended.
I'm off to a craft show all day tomorrow and half of my inventory went to Conneticut for a Friday night, Saturday & Sunday show. Needless to say this is my biggest weekend!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
