It’s been a little dreary outside today. The sky is grey and all I want is some chili. So I decided to make some. Here’s how it all went down.
In case I haven’t mentioned it before Emery and I usually do chili with turkey instead of beef since we’re trying to eat healthier.
So while making my handheld video director debut did you notice how many times I said, “beefy?” Me neither, but it was a lot. I’m not gonna lie, Craig, but beef chili is the best. This my friend is the next best, but tops for turkey chili.
I know not everyone appreciates spicy foods as I do, so cut back on the Chipotle or cut them out all together. It’ll tone down the heat, and keep it from burning your mouth and possibly your bum later on. (keeping it real.) But… if you find that this is way too hot for you, then dump an extra big can of diced tomatoes (24 oz) into the pot with a tablespoon more cumin and chili powder, plus 1 tablespoon of oregano. This recipe isn’t hard and unchangeable, which is one of the things I love about chili. Sometimes I’m feeling a little less Chipotle and more green peppers, or no corn. The sky is the limit.
This is also tasty served over spaghetti noodles, with tortilla chips, topped with cheese or sour cream, or with some hot dogs. Also since Super Bowl is right around the corner this would be perfect to have while watching the game! Since it’s done in the slow cooker you can start it that morning and it’ll be ready for game time!
