Turkey Chili with Beans
You may have noticed that boneless, skinless chicken breasts are not my favorite piece of chicken to cook… but of course, they're on sale often enough that I still buy them. With a little help, they can make for a quick and inexpensive meal.
While I very much love a brined and roasted turkey, I don't use a lot of ground turkey either. Though it is less fatty and therefore more attractive to those dieting and trying to cut back on fat, the lack of fat also means lack of flavor. In my dig through the New Year Freezer Cleanse however, I found a pound of mixed (85/15) ground turkey I had picked up at some point to make something that I've now long forgotten. With winter in the Deep South waning, and the Big Game coming up, I thought I would give some turkey chili a spin.
