Based on today's BLIZZARD, I am including my Uncle Don's Turkey Chili. It's wonderful and easy in a crock-pot! I will forewarn, you may want to drain the all the cans except the broth as the quantity tends to increase in quantity as it cooks.
3 lbs. ground turkey
3 onion diced
Large Medium Hot salsa (32 oz.)
2 cans hot chili kidney beans
1 can regular chili kidney beans
3 cans diced tomatoes-chili
1 can beef broth
Lace with Chili Powder (2 times)
1/3-1/2 lbs. brown sugar (*you can use a brown sugar substitute as well)
optionals: mushrooms and/or 2 jalapenos- chopped thin.
I like to cook for the longest setting (typically 8 hours), however you can cook for 4-5 hours and still be fine.
Top with Fat Free Cheese and/or sour cream
Also good served with jiffy mix corn muffins.
I hope you all are staying warm during this crazy stuff!
PREPPY ADVENTURES! (or just plain adventures)
Yesterday Dan and I made a trip to Kuma's Corner... so addicted... and probably the cause for my stomach ache last night... in combination with the Half Acre beer we picked up from the brewery. Then last night we ended up going to Zoo Lights at the Lincoln Park Zoo with Matt & Lisa. It was rainy and gross, but the lights are pretty. Check out some pictures below:
