Tasty Turkey Corn Chili
Winter makes me crave comfort food, and one of my favorite cold-weather dishes is chili. Normally I make ours with beef, but we tried it with turkey this time since that’s what we had on hand, and I like it even better. If it’s cold and blustery where you live, cook up a pot of this tasty Turkey Corn Chili for dinner tonight! 

Note: For you chili purists who don’t like beans or corn in your chili, you can make this dish without them. Just double the meat, add another can of tomatoes, and allow the liquid to cook down a little more.

The ingredients (most of them, anyway): Ground turkey, onion, red pepper flakes, ground cumin, tomato soup, diced tomatoes, beef broth, chili powder, black pepper, salt, pinto beans and cayenne pepper.

  1. Looks really good! My kids like beans and corn but I like that you can adapt the recipe. Cornbread looks yummy too.
