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 recipes.com 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.
