Need something for supper , try Quick Turkey Chili

This week I decided that I would try a new recipe, again using my favorite lean meat, you guessed it turkey!  The price is just so much better compared to ground beef.  I also through this recipe would be great becauschillie I planned to double it, as I know chili freezes well.  This week I am Quick Turkey Chili.  I found the recipe on the real simple website. Lately I have been feeling overwhelmed and will defiantly appreciate something quick that produces leftovers!!  Check out my first YouTube video!

The recipe is very simple and basic.

INGREDIENTSmm

  1. tablespoon olive oil
  2. small yellow onion, chopped
  3. pound ground turkey
  4. 114.5-ounce can diced tomatoes, undrained
  5. 115.5-ounce can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  6. bell pepper, diced
  7. tablespoons tomato paste
  8. 1 1/2teaspoons chili powder
  9. kosher salt
  10. 1/4 cup sour cream
  11. 1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded Cheddar
  12. 1/4 red onion, chopped (optional)

DIRECTIONS

  1. Heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring, until slightly soft, about 4 minutes.
  2. Add the turkey and cook, crumbling with the back of a wooden spoon, until no trace of pink remains, 5 to 7 minutes.
  3. Add the tomatoes and their juices, beans, bell pepper, tomato paste, 1½ cups water, chili powder, and 1¼ teaspoons salt. Bring to a boil.
  4. Reduce heat and simmer until slightly thickened, about 15 minutes.
  5. Divide among bowls and top with the sour cream, Cheddar, and onion, if using.

The sour cream adds such a nice touch, so don’t hold back.  I did skip the cheese to cut a few calories but it didn’t matter cause I ate two bowls.  The chili is delicious and I have lots to freeze.  Oh yeah and lets not forget what showed up as I was making supper.  I can wait to tell you all about the fun and features the Fitbit Alta has. fitbit

  1. This is fantastic! I’m trying my best to check out everyone’s learning projects, but it takes forever…and then I squirrel and I’m onto something else. I should have been checking your learning out a while ago as it seems like we’re doing something similar. You have to add me to your fitbit if you get a chance (heather11reid@hotmail.com). I absolutely love mine. Check out this link….this is what happened to me:-) http://www.buzzfeed.com/anniedaly/oh-you-steppin#.dj9yBpwO3.

  2. I really enjoyed the video. It was very easy to follow along. Sometime I get mixed up following written recipes but to have a video connected is a great idea. Thanks for sharing!
