This is my FAVORITE comfort food. While growing up, I remember my mom making this for me on those cold wintery California days… so what if it was only 60 degrees outside. Now that I am in Utah I love it even more. I also like to make this when anyone in my family comes down with a cold. Not only is this dish yummy, it’s good for you! This isn’t your average chili. I should let you know I am not a big fan of chili in general, but this one is worth it. Sooo delish.
Here is how I made it:
1. In a large stockpot over medium heat, add the turkey and begin to brown it. After a few minutes add in the chopped onion.
2. Once the turkey is cooked through and the onions translucent, add in the chopped green bell pepper. Let it cook with the turkey and onion for a few minutes, and then add the rest of the ingredients to the pot. Give it a good stir.
3. Bring the chili to a boil and simmer for 30 minutes with the lid on. Add salt and pepper to taste.
4. Scoop a good amount of chili into a bowl, top with a generous scoop of sour cream, cheddar cheese, lime wedge, cilantro and Fritos. Enjoy!! I know you will.
Time: About one hour in total.
Money: $15.00 (Serves 6, $2.50 per serving) Makes for great leftovers too.
Ick Factor: Low.
Love it or leave it?: Love it. This is my favorite dish to make on a cold day. This isn’t your average chili, it’s better described as a yummy vegetable, bean and turkey soup. The flavors are spot on (with added toppings), and it’s super quick and easy to make. Enjoy!
