Cooking in the fall is fabulous especially when you use a Slow Cooker or Crock Pot.
Last weekend I made a Slow Cooked Turkey Chili using Jennie-O lean Ground Turkey. This is one of the easiest weekend or weekday meals to prepare. The next day leftovers are equally good so make sure you make enough to have some!
I love any recipe that you can dump into the Crock Pot in the morning then come home to a fully cooked meal…and of course a kitchen that smell delicious!
16 oz package of Jennie-O Lean Ground Turkey
14.4 oz package of frozen peppers and onions or Pepper Stir Fry
14.5 oz can of Diced Tomatoes
15.5 oz can of Black Beans rinsed in cold water
10 oz package of frozen corn
1 package of low sodium Chili Mix
Optional Ingredients: Cilantro, Green Onions, Cheddar Cheese, Sour Cream, and of course a little of Hot Sauce!
You can brown the Ground Turkey first in a little Olive Oil before placing in the Crock Pot, however, I prefer to use frozen Ground Turkey which allows it to thaw as it cooks with the other ingredients. If you brown the ground turkey first, cook on high for 2 hours, otherwise, on low for 4 hours.
This Turkey Chili can be topped with shredded cheddar cheese or sour cream and of course a little hot sauce. Hubby loves cornbread and served over rice.
