this will be good (updated)

hello friendlies--on this blustery, overcast day, i think some chili is in order. but, since this evening my dad and i will be making quick work of moving me over to the new place, i won't have time to make any,

but you should.

i'll put up my favorite recipe for chili, which cannot be served without cornbread (preferably jiffy, baked in a cast iron skillet:). and if you don't feel like making it, or don't think you can do it successfully or something, i will make it for you when i get settled. for real, i will.

here's the recipe:

cozy chili
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 2 red bell peppers
  • 4 cloves of garlic, pressed
  • 2 lbs. ground turkey
  • 1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
  • 1/4 cup chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 (12 ounce) can lager beer (optional, can use broth as a replacement)
  • 2 (19 ounce) cans kidney beans
  • 1 (28 ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • salt and pepper to taste

Really good served with: Jiffy cornbread, sour cream, radishes, scallions, avocados, jalapenos, cilantro, cheddar, and toasted pumpkin seeds.


1. Heat oil in large pot, over medium-high heat.

2. Add onions, red pepper, garlic and cook for 6-8 minutes, until soft, stirring occasionally.

3. Add ground turkey and cook until no longer pink, about 5-7 minutes. Add tomato paste, chili powder, and cumin. Cook for a few minutes.

4. Add beer (or broth), beans, tomatoes (including their juices), salt and pepper.

5. Let simmer until nice and thick, about 25 minutes.

happy fall, everyone.
