"Standard" Chili

2:18 PM

I probably should have posted this recipe for chili before the Superbowl, but I didn’t make it until yesterday.  I literally threw a bunch of stuff together that I thought would work.  It tastes pretty “standard” to me if there’s such thing.  And it turned out to be pretty yummy.  Experimenting with chili is so easy.  There are tons of options out there.  What defines chili as a chili?  Some argue it must include beans and others argue the total opposite.  I’ll let you decide because I like it either way.  In this case, you’ll find beans and meat.  You could substitute the meat with tofu and make it vegetarian.  There’s no wrong way to make chili.
Here are two more styles:

What You Will Need:
1 lb of ground turkey
1 large yellow onion, chopped
1 large clove of garlic, chopped
1 (10 oz) can Vegetarian Baked Beans
1 (14.5 oz) can Light Red Kidney Beans, drained and rinsed
1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes
1 (6 oz) can tomato sauce
What You Might Already Have:
1 T olive oil
2 tsp dried parsley
2 tsp Chili powder
1 tsp Hot Chili powder
1 tsp dried crushed red pepper
2 tsp Sweet Paprika
Dash of salt and pepper
1 bay leaf
Large skillet
Slow cooker

1)      Heat olive oil over medium-high heat.  (All of my recipes start out this way!) Cook onion and garlic for 5 minutes.
2)      Add meat and brown.
3)      Mix all ingredients in slow-cooker.  Cook for 4-5 hours on Low.

Serve with sour cream, cheese and green onions.
