Anyone ever tried turkey Chili ? ......sounds good.

When you just can't face another turkey sandwich, toss the remaining turkey leftovers into this spicy chili. This Mexican-inspired medley, made with kidney beans, corn, green pepper, jalapeno pepper, garlic and onion, is sure to spice things up.
Ingredients
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 medium green pepper, chopped
  • 2 fresh jalapeno peppers, chopped
  • 2 tbsp. (30 mL) vegetable oil
  • 2 cups (500 mL) chopped leftover turkey
  • 1 can (19 oz./540 mL) white kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup (250 mL) corn niblets (frozen, canned or fresh)
  • 1 tbsp. (15 mL) all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp. (15 mL) Mexican chili powder (or whatever you like)
  • 1 tsp. (5 mL) ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. (2 mL) salt
  • 2 cups (500 mL) chicken or turkey broth

Cooking Instructions
  • In a large saucepan or Dutch oven, cook garlic, onion, green pepper and jalapeno pepper in vegetable oil for about 5 to 7 minutes or until softened. Add chopped turkey, beans, corn, flour, chili powder, ground cumin and salt. Stir well to mix, then add chicken broth. Bring to a boil over medium heat, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Serve hot, with rice, tortillas or corn bread.

Our favorite is turkey pot pie. Use up the turkey, rice, gravy, .....julienne some carrots, chop some celery and onion, and mix all together then freeze in seal a meals to fill a pic crust. About a quart.

Make a pie crust, warm the filling, add some stock and pour into pie crust. Put the top crust on and bake for 39minutes. Easy meal.

I just made creamed turkey rice soup and it is delicious. My picky family won't even try it, but I don't care.

I save all our bones. Raw turkey/chicken, cooked turkey chicken, beef-pork-lamb-veal, goose/duck. They all go in separate bags in the freezers. When I have enough of one to fill my 4-5 gallon stock pot, I throw in carrots, onion, celery, parsley, garlic, pepper cloves, bay leaves and bring to a boil. Simmer for 18-24 hours, decant, strain into quart jars and can them in the pressure cooker.

Great for gravy, soups, reductions, etc. No chemicals, no salt, and we use EVERYTHING but the cheap-quack-gobble-oink-baaaah- and moo!!!

That sounds delicious!
