Yummy Chili in Cold Weather  

Posted in ,

Chili is one of the American foods that I like. This is perfect during cold weather. Yesterday, I decided to make my own version rather than going to Wendy’s to satisfy my craving. I refer to my best friend Google to have an idea what ingredients I needed and how to cook it in the right way. This is the first time that I cook chili and luckily it turned out good. (lol, I never expected).. I revised the recipe that I found online. Here's the ingredients that I used:

• 1 lb. ground turkey
• 2 onions, chopped
• 4 cloves garlic, chopped
• 2 (14 oz.) cans diced tomatoes, undrained
• 15 oz. can tomato sauce
• 2 Tbsp. chili powder
• 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
• 1/2 tsp. salt
• 1/8 teaspoon pepper
• 2 (15 oz.) cans red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
• 1/4 cup water
• 2 celery stalk, cut into diced

For the preparation, I cooked ground turkey in heavy skillet until brown and drain. I mixed all ingredients except the ¼ cup of water and the 1 tbsp of the chili powder. I used crock-pot and cook it on low for 5 hours and stir it occasionally. I added the water and the remaining 1 tbsp chili powder 20 minutes before I turn off the crock-pot. By the way, if you want a hot chili you can add 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper. I never used this because I don’t like hot chili. It is yummier if you will simmer it longer. This really turned out good..yum! yum! yum! :D
