It's a little chili inside.

I know it's been almost a month since I've updated! It's been so incredibly busy around here with Thanksgiving, then getting everything ready for Christmas. I've been on the go non-stop, meaning easy dinners were in order.

With the cold weather, everyone was wanting some comfort food, so tonight's dinner is a simple turkey chili.

What you'll need;

2 jars of spaghetti sauce
2lbs ground turkey
1 can of kidney beans
2tbsp garlic
2tbsp onion powder
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp salt
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 teaspoon oregano

Now you can add seasonings like cayenne, hot sauce, or whatever other seasonings you like to create a spicy chili, but this is just a mild version.

Brown the turkey in a pan - I always add a little water to keep it from sticking to the bottom. Heat the spaghetti sauce in a larger pan, then add the kidney beans, turkey and seasonings and stir for about 10 minutes or until warm. Serve and enjoy!

The whole process takes about 1/2 hour.

I will be posting more recipes soon - especially the delicious cherry pie I made for Thanksgiving!

Until then, live, eat and be happy!
