Turkey Chili

Yesterday was a much needed day of rest. I didn't even change out of my PJ's until 2 pm, it was so nice.

After Scott got home we ran up to Target because they had the wagon I've wanted since last year on sale for $53. It's going to be perfect for Halloween this year! I hope the kids will be as excited as I am about it!

Then last night I made a big pot of turkey chili with some homemade cornbread (here's the recipe for the cornbread). The chili was beyond delicious! Here's how to make it (this is just for a single batch, I made a double yesterday):

You will need:

12 oz ground turkey
1 large onion, chopped
1/2 green sweet pepper, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 15 oz can dark red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 8 oz can tomato sauce
2 to 3 teaspoons chili powder (I did three)
1/2 teaspoon dried basil, crushed
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

What you need to do:

In a large saucepan cook the turkey, onion, garlic, and pepper until the onions are soft and the turkey is browned. Drain the fat (I didn't do this, there wasn't a lot, so I left it).

Stir in kidney beans, undrained tomatoes, tomato sauce, chili powder, basil and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Bring to a boil and then reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes. I let mine simmer for 45 minutes.
Scott and I did some quick math on this recipe and for a double batch it only cost us $10 to make. Enjoy!
