I LOVE chili! It's like pizza for me, even bad chili is good chili. ;~) (well... unless it's from a can)
This chili I purposely made mild to TRY and get the husband and the toddler on board with my chili obsession but alas, I failed. The husband didn't try it, he's just not interested in chili! Unbelievable! And the toddler, well, he said he didn't like before he even tried it. His mind was already made up and I couldn't change it.
Oh well, their loss, it was GOOD! Now I have lunches for the next week!
Next time, since they aren't going to eat it anyway, I'm spicing it up with some ground red pepper, hot sauce and jalapeno peppers!
- 20 oz extra lean ground turkey
- 1 small-medium onion chopped
- 1 large green bell pepper chopped
- 1 large red bell pepper chopped
- 1 small can of sweet corn (8oz) undrained
- 1 can of black beans (15oz) drained and rinsed
- 1 can of diced tomatoes (15oz) undrained
- 1 small can of tomato paste (6oz)
- 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa (5g)
- 1 tbsp Molasses (20g)
- 1 tbsp chili powder
- 1 tbsp onion powder
- 1 tbsp dried cilantro
- ½ tbsp ground cumin
- non-stick spray
Brown the turkey in a non-stick skillet over medium heat.
Spray the inside of the crock pot with non-stick cooking spray (makes is much easier to clean!). Add all the ingredients to a crock pot with 1 tomato paste can of water (6oz). Mix well to combine, it will thick and dry (not a lot of liquid). Cover and cook on high for 3 hours or on low for 5-6 hours.
Here's a before and after cooking photo.
Serve with a sprinkle of cheese and cilantro, over rice, or (my favorite) with some baked Doritos! YUM!
