P.S. I have no idea how to make this picture into a link without the HTML code. Anyone have any tips?
So today's prompt is a recipe that I make often during the school year. If you ask my husband, he would probably tell you that I make everything pretty often because I don't have a wide cooking range. However, one of my favorite meals to make takes no time and I can get work done while it's cooking. Sorry, I have no pictures!
Chili (makes about 8 servings? I have no idea!)
1 lb. ground turkey (you could easily use ground beef...that's what my mom uses!)
1/2 packet chili seasoning (I use Chil-O because it has no onions!)
1 can tomato sauce
2 cans Bush's Chili Beans (I use the hot. You can use mild or none at all. You want 3 total cans of beans though)
1 can pinto beans
Chili powder to taste.
- In large pot or skillet, cook ground turkey until done and drain off any fat. Add 1/2 packet of chili seasoning to meat.
- Add tomato sauce and beans to meat. Stir and cook on low to medium heat, stirring often.
- Taste occasionally and add in chili powder to taste.
- Chili is done when it is heated through. We normally add a little shredded cheese to ours when we eat it :)
That's it! It's really easy and allows me to do some work while it's cooking. I would say from start to finish it takes around 30 minutes. You can easily double the recipe. This recipe is actually half of my mom's original. We normally both eat 2 bowls and there is plenty leftover for lunch the next day. Since there are no onions or greens in it, your kids will probably enjoy it too!
