Quick and Easy One Pot Turkey Chili

turkey chili

All I can say today is brrr.  It was a miserable day here today with nothing but rain.  The temperatures started off not so bad this morning but have been quickly dipping down low.  I think it’s gonna go down into the 30’2 tonight, yikes!   And tomorrow’s high only around 49°.

Time to get out the heated throw for the couch tonight!  The cats will love me, I’ll be their new best friend.  Well just for the time being I guess, let’s not get carried away.  They’ll forget I exist in the morning again, haha.

It was a great day for a pot full of turkey chili though.  I’ve had this cooking light recipe saved from last winter and have just gotten around to trying it.  They call it a “20 minute recipe” and I’d say that’s about right.  It’s simple enough to whip up on any week night.

It’s a good recipe to warm you right up.  It’s got just the right amount of heat and spices.  Hubs gave it two thumbs up.
