There’s nothing like a thick, hearty, homemade bowl of chili on a cold winter’s day. In keeping with my original goals for Reel Chow, here’s an original recipe that’s healthy, yet fairly easy to prepare. It contains almost no added salt.
Our neighbor Stephanie had a wonderful New Year’s Day brunch. Among the many dishes she had prepared was a turkey chili containing mushrooms. It was wonderful, and inspired me to make a turkey chili of my own. We’ve previously featured one of my other chili recipes on the Reel Chow blog, my Tequila Three Bean Chili. This is a different approach, with turkey as the main feature. It has two beans and no tequila.
I had leftover onions and bell peppers in the refrigerator from the day before. I decided to use these instead of buying fresh. I used canned beans but you can use dry or can, whatever your preference is. The ingredients listed below are fresh.
This chili can be eaten by itself, or with a side dish of rice, or with some delicious artisan bread. Here’s some easy instructions on how to make this dish yourself and warm up on a cold winter day.
