Sunday Dinner - 08/01/2010

Sometimes when I go to cook dinner I have no idea what I'm going to make. It's a little game I call "What's in My Kitchen". The game goes like this...I find a food to give me inspiration, a meat or pasta or rice. Then I make a recipe I know by heart. Or I just grab random food stuffs and start cooking. This fails as often as it works out. Whatever dinner turns out to be is usually edible but not always awesome. Tonight, I let the ground turkey in my freezer and the beans in my pantry to give me inspiration. So turkey chili it is!

Crock Pot Turkey Chili
1.5lb ground turkey breast
1 small onion, chopped
1 small bell pepper, chopped
2 cans diced tomatoes
2 small cans tomato sauce
1 cans tomatoes w/ chili (rotel)
1can chickpeas, undrained
2can red beans, undrained
2 tbsp chili powder
2 dashes of jalapeno hot sauce

Brown turkey, bell pepper, and onion in a medium skillet over med-high heat until cooked through.

Drain fat  from turkey mixture and transfer to crock pot. Add the beans, rotel, chickpeas, tomatoes, tomato sauce, hot sauce and chili powder mixing well.

Cook on high 4-6hrs or low for 6-8hrs. Serve with a little cheese and a few baked tortilla chips.

If you have any question/comments about this recipe, pls leave me a comment or email at megmehell at yahoo dot com.

I hope you enjoy this dinner as much as I did. What did y'all have for dinner?

Not exactly having a specific meal tonight. I have been snacking on some black-eyed peas & rice, some NY strip steak, saute bell peppers & zucchinis, bananas and raisin bread since lunch.
