kicked up turkey chili
I thought I'd share one of my favorite chili recipes.I made it for lunch today and it's fairly low carb and low in fat so not too much guilt.lol
1 lb ground turkey 1/2 large vidalia onion~chopped 1 TBSP minced garlic salt and pepper 1 large can petite diced tomatoes small jar of Ragu original (weird I know but it really is sooo good) same jar of Ragu filled with water TBSP of each~chili powder (I actually use 2) cumin paprika cayenne pepper chili flakes dash of brown sugar(my little secret) sometimes I add a can of beans but usually not
brown turkey well in a dutch oven then add onion and garlic.Cook over med heat for a few minutes longer. In seperate bowl mix all other ingredients then add to turkey. The longer you simmer the better! It's a bit on the spicy side but really tasty. Serve with cheese,sour cream,jalepenos(for the REALLY brave),red onion,or whatever you like in your chili. YUM!
I'm a stay at home Christian mom of 7 kids ranging in age from 19 down to 6. I am truly a country girl at heart and hope to someday move to a small farm out in nowhere :) I love my family and my husband,I love to cook and try new recipes~mostly down home style food I ate growing up.
If you want a glimpse of Southern life,Come close and walk with me;I'll tell you all the simple things,That you are sure to see.You'll see mockingbirds and bumblebees,Magnolia blossoms and dogwood trees;
Caterpillars on the step,Wooden porches cleanly swept;Watermelons on the vine, Strong majestic Georgia pines Rocking chairs and front yard swingsJunebugs flying on a stringTurnip greens and hotcornbread,Coleslaw and barbecueFried okra, fried corn,fried green tomatoes,Fried pies and pickles too.
There's ice cold tea that 's syrupy sweet,And cool, green grass beneath your feet;Catfish nipping in the lake,And fresh young boys on the make.You'll see all these thingsAnd much, much more,In a way of life, that I adore.
