As you all know, I am NOT a cook. I try really hard and sometimes I might get it right. Hahahaha! On Monday, it was nice and cool and a PERFECT day for chili! I usually make my chili following the directions on the back of the chili seasoning packet (for non cooks!). But, today, I felt like improvising.
Ingredients (of course, not with specific measurements):
1 lb of ground turkey breast
1 can Kidney Beans
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can rotel
Gallo (Guatemalan Beer) can be found at World Market under the name Famosa
Wheat Ritz Crackers
Brown turkey and season with cayenne pepper, garlic salt, and cumin. I didn't drain because the meat is super lean. Put meat into crockpot. I then added the kidney beans (with juice), diced tomatoes (with juice), and rotel (with juice). Add package of chili seasoning and the other seasons to taste. To finish, I added the Gallo for the extra kick (the alcohol cooks out, so don't worry). I cooked in the crockpot for 5 hours on high, stirring occasionally.
We found this chili to be super yummy and had just a hint of spice. We added shredded cheese and crumbled wheat ritz crackers to "thicken" it up. Even Caroline liked it!
