Chilli already?

While on vacation in Vermont, I made some chili for our household which consisted of Hubby, Buttons, Beth, her hubby, her two cuties and me. Beth told me I must post the recipe for my chili, so now that the monsoons have hit our part of the country and cool weather is here, I shall oblige.

Katie's Chili
Small amount of olive oil
1 large yellow onion
2 pounds of ground turkey (or ground veggie substitute)
About 40 oz of canned tomatoes, diced or chopped with juice
15 oz tomato sauce
12 oz tomato paste
2-15 oz cans dark red kidney beans
2 teaspoons salt
3-4 heaping teaspoons chili powder
2-3 bay leaves
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce (or Pick-A-Peppa)
Dash of tobasco

Brown onion in olive oil, add turkey/veggie substitute and brown/warm. Combine other ingredients and cook in a crock pot on low for 4 to 6 hours, or on low on the stove for about an hour, stirring frequently.

You may serve on top of rice or with shredded cheese and tortilla chips.

I also persuaded Gina to post about "Toddisms" and I recommend her post to you.

Mmmmmmm, chili! One of my favorite cold weather dishes - pretty nutritious too (if you don't use fatty meat).

Thankfully, the sun will be shinning again this weekend. I'm about sick of frizzy hair and a wet chill.

BTW, do you have a shiner? You & the hubster boxing again? ;0)

Oh how I love Worcestershire sauce. And, that adorable pic of Buttons! We make our chili with turkey, too. Same-Same.

Oh garsh, Tammy. That's how rumors get started ;-) That weird thing around my eye is a water droplet and I think it's in mid-air casting a shadow under my eye. We were actually at Sesame Place getting soaked on the Big Bird Balloon Race ride. I've actually never had a shiner.

Thanks for the recipe. We're big chili fans and I'll all for anything cooked in a crock pot - "cooks all day while the cook's away."

Can't wait to try it! Chili is in our regular rotation once the weather cools off. I'm excited because it's only going to be 95 today.

WOOO! I love chili! I will definitely be trying this! Thanks, Katie! You're the "rifxrzs!"
