Your Gain Is My Pain…Call me! ~ Janice Taylor, Anti-Gravity Coach, Positarian, Author, Artist

Once again, my slow cooker came to the rescue.  Here’s how it went down…
…We invited a few friends to come on over for an easy, breezy, informal “hang out.”  (Do people say that any more?) I ran to the supermarket and picked up the following ingredients (see below).  Followed my own instructions.  (I’m not good at following directions, so even following my own was a major win.)  And 8 hours later an informal yet amazing, heartwarming, comfort-food meal was ready for ingestion!

Our little informal group had two and three servings each!  Very little was left over.  So I’d say that this recipe is for 6 to 8 people, depending on their appetites!

Smokin’ Turkey Chili

1 pound ground turkey
3/4 cup diced shallots
3/4 cup diced celery
3/4 cup diced green bell pepper
3/4 cup diced red bell pepper
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 (23 oz.) large can tomato puree
1 (15 oz.) can kidney beans with liquid
1 (15 oz.) can kidney bean drained
1 (15 oz.) can cannelloni beans with liquid
1/2 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon chili chipotle smoked powder  (I found a bag of this smoked chiptole chili powder at the local healthy eating supermarket. It is a spicy spice.  1/2 teaspoon gave the chili a really nice bite.  More than that…I don’t know.  Adjust to your inner-hotness.)
1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
1 tablespoon dried basil
1 tablespoon dried oregano
salt and pepper to taste

Place the ground turkey in a skillet over medium heat, and cook until evenly brown. Drain grease.
Place ground turkey in a slow cooker. Mix in the rest of the ingredients, one by one with love.
Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.
Serve with rice (basmati is my favorite) and salad!
Receive compliments!  “Oh yes, you are a great cook!”


Deliciously yours,
