Happy Monday Everbody!!!!


yes that is OBVIOUSLY the most important part of today

Second is my first Video post!!!! Yea sorry in advanced that I have the attention span of a doughnut
Annyyywayyy I wanted to share with you guys the chili I made last night!

I got the recipe from my friend Kathleen and tweaked a little but OMG…. SOOOO SOO SOO SOOS OSO good!!!

Best Turkey Chili

3 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided

1 1/2 pounds ground turkey

1 (1 ounce) package taco seasoning mix

1 teaspoon ground coriander

1 teaspoon dried oregano

1 teaspoon chili pepper flakes

2 tablespoons tomato paste

1 (14.5 ounce) can beef broth

1 (7 ounce) can salsa (i didn’t use this)

1 (14.5 ounce) can crushed tomatoes, or coarsely chopped tomatoes packed in puree ( I used 2 cans diced tomatoes)

1 (7 ounce) can chopped green chile peppers (I used Rotel diced tomatoes and chilis)

1 medium onion, finely chopped

1 green bell pepper, diced (I used 1 red and 1 orange pepper)

3 medium zucchini, halved lengthwise and sliced

1 bag frozen corn

2 cans black beans

1 bunch green onions, chopped

1 cup sour cream ( I topped with guacamole instead)

1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large stock pot over medium-high heat. Crumble turkey into the pot, stirring with a wooden spoon to break apart as much as possible. Season with taco seasoning mix, coriander, oregano, chili flakes, and tomato paste, and mix until meat is evenly coated with seasonings. I added the onions in here and cked them with the meat. Continue cooking, reducing heat if necessary, until turkey is well browned. Pour in beef broth, and simmer to reduce liquid slightly, about 5 minutes. Add salsa (if using), beer, tomatoes, and green chilies, and continue cooking at a moderate simmer for ten minutes. Adjust the thickness at any time you feel necessary by adding water.Add peppers, zucchini, beans and corn and simmer. Ladle chili into serving bowls. Top with sour cream, green onion, and cheddar cheese, and serve.

This was amazing and healthy because it is chock full of veggies and turkey instead of ground beef!
My pictures don’t do this justice so no pics for now… but trust me… best chili ever!!!!
