Today’s Menu: Three Bean Turkey Chili w/ Cornbread
Well Winter is here to stay. Not quite as windy but another cold but sunny Winter day. So like yesterday I wanted a hearty and healthy 3 Bean Turkey Chili 001dinner that would warm you up a bit. So I prepared Three Bean Turkey Chili w/ Cornbread!

 
I love this Chili! Made in a Crockpot, which makes it a breeze to clean up. I just get everything prepped and ready in the morning and load the Crockpot up! I make it with Honeysuckle White Extra Lean Ground Turkey and 3 different Beans; Spicy Chili Beans, Dark Red Low Sodium Kidney Beans, and Cannellini White Beans. I add 1 Packet of McCormick Chili Mix to it and then load up the great spices on top of it; 1 Tbs Minced Garlic, 1/2 Tbs Ground Cocoa Chili Blend (McCormick), 1/2 Tsp Ground Chipotle Chili Pepper (McCormick), 1 Tsp. Ground Roasted Cumin, 1/2 Tsp Ground Cinnamon, 1 Tbs of Cilantro Leaves, and 5 Dashes (or more) of Frank’s Hot Sauce or to taste! I also add 2 small cans of Tomato Paste and 1/2 cup of Water. Cover with lid and cook on HIGH 3 to 4 hours (or on LOW 5 to 6 hours). I cooked mine on low for about 5 1/2 hors. After about 2 hours everything starts to come together and the aroma of the simmering Chili starts to fill the kitchen! Too Good!! I left the full recipe at the bottom of the post.

 

I also baked a small cast iron skillet of Cornbread. Cornbread and Chili are the perfect couple. I used Martha White Corn Meal Mix. I guess I use the Martha White Brand because my Mom always used it along with my Grandmother. It’s easy to fix, the instructions are on the bag. I use Egg Beaters and Extra Virgin Oil instead of Eggs and Vegetable Oil the recipe calls for. Bake at 450 degrees for about 25 minutes and you have some golden brown piping hot Cornbread! If you use a small cast iron skillet just cut the recipe in half and it comes out just right for the skillet size. For dessert a mini Banana Split. I make it with a Dole Mini Banana (that I split in half), Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Ice Cream, Smuckers Sugar Free Hot Fudge Topping, and Walnut pieces.
