One of the easiest best dinners and party dishes for Winter.
So it’s finally raining in Los Angeles and that means Winter to me and winter means Turkey Chili. I made this last night and it’s the best, yummyest, hits the spot, cozy din-din. Also great for a party. Make a chili bar and have everyone create their bowl… cheese, onions, sour cream, cilantro, chips, jalapenos… and Beer! Yummm.
1.5 pounds of ground dark turkey
1 can of corn
1 can of black beans
1 can of chopped tomatoes
½ can of tomato paste
a couple cloves of garlic, chopped
½ cup of water or chicken broth
In a large pot, sauté chopped onion
Add ground turkey and separate while browning
Add tomatoes, corn and black beans – draining the corn but leaving ½ the liquid of the beans
Add ½ can of tomato paste and ½ cup of water and STIR
Add 2 tablespoons of cumin and 1 tablespoon of chili powder and salt to taste
Stir and simmer for 30-40 minutes
If it needs it I add more cumin and or chili powder
To make it a vegetarian version – you can chop a red pepper and some zucchini into the onions to begin … and add a can of pinto beans to the corn and black beans instead of turkey.
Serve with shredded cheese mixture (jack and cheddar) and corn chips – yummm
