Welcome to my first recipe swap blog hop! This is my first time writing about my own recipe, it was a little hard in regards to how to word it; lets just say writing a cook book is not on my things to do. Yet, I was up to the challenge.
I was invited by Leslie over at https://onceuponatimehappilyeverafter.com/ to join in on the Recipe Swap Blog hop. The idea behind the post was to see how we all prepare these comfort foods differently yet yielding the same delicious tast.
Doesn’t this post just make you want to curl up with a hot bowl of soup, chili or stew with a blanket by a fire place on this cold fall day? I love comfort foods like this.
Lets get started on what I made!
Hearty Turkey and Bean Chili
1/2 teaspoon olive oil
2 pounds ground turkey
1 lg. white onion, chopped
2 cups of bell peppers, I got these pre-diced
1/2 cup water
2 (16 ounce) canned chili ready crushed tomatoes
2 (16 ounce) can canned chili mix kidney beans
2 tablespoon chili powder
(Optional)1/2 teaspoon sugar
•1 box or large can of tomato sauce
2 packets of Chilli-O seasoning
How To Make:
I generally combine the olive oil, chili powder and ground turkey in large skillet to brown meat (drain the fat). Then I start the onions, green peppers, add water and chili powder in a small pan set a side to saute.
After they’ve all cooked a bit, I combine all and the rest of the ingredients in a big pot to medium temp, then place lid on to simmer, frequently stirring while letting all the flavors merge together.
While I was cooking my husband and baby girl decided to past some time coloring, they seemed to enjoy each other’s company.
How do you like your chili nzuri?
I like mine with saltine crackers, red peppers, cheddar cheese, onions and sometimes sour cream, so good! (I have also tried corn bread in the past which wasn’t bad at all!) My husband only has cheese and Ritz crackers, my son typically has cheese and a little spice.
When it was time to eat, baby girl said she was making a double stack chilli and crackers sandwich; very clever🤔 she only like saltines with hers.
All and all this was very outside of my comfort zone yet exciting to share my recipe. This recipe although tweaked, was handed down to me by my elder children’s grandfather, he made the best chili around. We’ve added potatoes, veggies and other substitutions in regards to meats in the past and I’ve liked them all.
Thank you Leslie for the invite, I look forward to doing it again. The next blogger to share her recipe is Jamie https://nodelusionsofgrandeur.com/ , can’t wait to see what’s cooking over there! Lets hop over…
