It’s only the first week of the Fall season and I’ve already made my first hearty hot meal. I’m inspired by a number of food bloggers yum recipes. But this is my go to, quick and easy – no fuss dish. It will serve a hungry group. It’s also good as leftovers. I like spicy food but you could cut down adjusting to your taste.
Turkey Chili served with brown rice.
I use a large cast iron pan.
Saute, until wilted:
1 small Spanish onion, diced
1/2 large red/green pepper, diced
2 large cloves of garlic, minced
Add to the above and simmer until meat is cooked:
1 lb Ground Turkey
1 packet or, 1 t Chili powder, 1 t Onion powder, 1/2 t Salt, 1/4 t Cumin
1/4 t of Cayenne pepper – I like the “kick”
1 can of cooked Kidney beans
Stir in 1 small, 6 oz can of tomato sauce and 1/4 cup of water.
Add to the above a few minutes before you serve:
1/2 c frozen corn
4 oz shredded cheese (I used Cheddar)
For a simple dessert:
Dice a MacIntosh apple, sprinkle cinnamon & and drizzle with 1 T of maple sugar (can also use sugar free syrup). Heat in the micro for 40 seconds on high – serve warm.
