Farm fresh chili?

Well….not exactly, but pretty darn close.  I chose a chili recipe that called for ground turkey instead of beef because that is what we have in our freezer.  I used a recipe from as a guideline but totally ended up making this up as I went along.  The end result was nothing short of AMAZING! Since we had yesterday off from the farm I had extra energy to spend a lot more time in the kitchen.  Including baking zucchini muffins that would be consumed this morning!

Last nights menu: Turkey chili with beans, corn, and peppers. (also, non-homemade corn bread)

I started by sauteing fresh garlic, green pepper, and onion (all from the farm) in extra virgin olive oil.  I then added the ground turkey and corn kernels that I cut off from the cob

Then I added diced tomatoes, kidney beans, tomato paste and a Corona into the mix

Followed by lots of chili powder, cumin, crushed red pepper flakes and hot sauce. Topped of with a little sour cream and pepper jack cheese. Yum.  To tell  you the truth it was a little too toasty outside last night for chili but we washed it down with an iced cold Corona and that made all the difference.

Two happy and satisfied farmers.

    Corona goes with everything, BTW.
