Why is it called Weeknight Easy Turkey Chili?
I classify recipes three ways: Weekend. Weekend Easy and Weeknight Easy.
Weekend recipes tend to only be made on Saturdays and Sundays. Weekend easy recipes are involved for weeknights, but they still make their way in rotation.
But weeknight easy recipes are the ones we eat all the time. These recipes need to be quick. They must be made with ingredients usually have on hand. And they need to be good. Preferably really good.
This Weeknight Easy Turkey Chili is all three. It doesn’t matter if you swap an ingredient, add a little less or a little more of your favourite parts or even add extra liquid and pasta to make a Turkey Chili Soup. As we’re heading into winter, this is definitely a keeper for those busy, cold Wednesday nights when you’re sitting staring at each other saying “what do you want for dinner” and “I don’t know, what do YOU want for dinner”.
Prep time: about 15 min + min 20 minutes simmer time.
1 package ground turkey
1 med onion
1 red pepper
1 yellow pepper
2 cups chicken broth
2 cans diced tomatoes
1 can tomato paste
1 can black beans (drained and rinsed)
1 can chick peas (drained and rinsed)
1 cup frozen corn
3 clove garlic
3 tbls chilli powder
1 tbls cumin
Fresh ground pepper
Dice the onion and throw it in the pan as you brown the turkey.
Once it’s browned and the onions are translucent, toss them in a large pot.
Dice the peppers and add them to the pot too.
Toss in the broth, diced tomatoes, and tomato paste.
Rinse and drain the chick peas and black beans and pop them in there too.
Toss in about a cup of frozen corn.
Put 3 cloves of garlic into a garlic press and into the pot it goes.
Add the spices + salt and pepper to taste.
Simmer for a min of 20 minutes.
Garnish with any combination of avocado, sour cream, cheese, crunchy tortillas or crusty bread.
I’m pretty sure you’ll enjoy this as much as we do (pretty much every week).
Today I’m glad to be sharing recipes from fellow Canadian bloggers under the hashtag #CANRecipe. November is the unofficial start of winter across the country and what better way to get ready for the season than with delicious food straight from our kitchens.
