A beautiful snowy weekend
for enjoying some Turkey Chili
and the game!
Also, my favourite bird
has been feeding in the back
How did you enjoy the game?
As hard as I try and as many times
as football has been explained to me
I'm afraid I still don't get it.
I DO love, however, the getting together with
friends and enjoying some hearty food and fellowship.
|Look closely and see the neighbour coming in the lane with the horse and buggy on this very snowy Monday Morning. He comes each day - twice a day - to tend to his goats in our barn!|
TURKEY CHILI - one of our favourites!
Turkey Chili with Barley and Black Eyed Beans! I almost always make a double batch and freeze portions for easy supper meals....
2 tsp. vegetable oil
1 Cup chopped onion
2 cloves garlic - crushed
1 lb. ground Turkey or chicken
1 19 oz. can chopped tomatoes with juice
1 1/2 Cups chicken stock
1/4 Cup barley - I always make my measurement heaping!
1 Tbsp. chili powder
1 Tbsp. minced and seeded jalapeno pepper (optional)
2 tsp. dried basil
1 tsp. dried oregano
2 bay leaves
1 19 oz. can drained and rinsed black eyed beans (I use black beans)
2 Tbsp. Tomato Paste
Mushrooms - throw in a handful or two (required by the farmer who loves shrooms)
Corn - sometimes I add in a cup of corn
In large pot heat oil and saute the onion and garlic. Add in the meat and fry until no longer pink (8-10 minutes). Add in the remaining ingredients - bring to a boil and then turn down the heat to simmer uncovered for at least 30 minutes or until the barley is tender. Let it simmer even longer for a nice thick Chili.
Garnish with chopped green onions, grated cheese, sour cream and parsley.
Have a great week everyone...............
