Today’s Menu: Leftover Turkey Chili Macaroni

 

I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea this morning for Breakfast. 77 degrees, sunny and beautiful out today! Cleaned the house today, dusted and vacuumed. Then I did a load of laundry. After Lunch it was outside to do some work. Got the leaf blower, rake, and cart out of the shed. It’s a perfect day to be outdoors! I enjoy doing yard work, good exercise and you get to be outside. For Dinner tonight it’s Leftover Turkey Chili Macaroni. Another one of those delicious One Pot Meals that is too good to not use the Leftovers! I’ve left the original post from last night below for ingredients and directions. Take Care and Stay Safe!

 

I tried something new for Dinner tonight, Chili Macaroni Hamburger Helper. Instead of using Ground Hamburger I chose to use Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast. The Turkey has less Calories, Carbs, and Fat, healthier and more delicious. To go along with the Chili Macaroni I had a slice of Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Wheat Bread that I topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Light.

 

So I started by frying the Ground Turkey till it was no longer pink in Extra Light Olive Oil and seasoning it with Sea Salt, Ground Roasted Cumin, and Cilantro Flakes. As the Turkey was finishing cooking I added, 1 can OF Bush’s Chili Beans – Black Beans.

 

 

 

 

 

As I started the Ground Turkey was finishing I got the Chili Macaroni ready to add to the Turkey. I started by adding 2 3/4 cups of Hot Water to the Turkey Skillet. Stirred the Water and Ground Turkey and added the Chili Macaroni Pasta Packet. Stirred it all together and increased the heat to medium high, heated until boiling. Covered and reduced the heat to simmer, cooking for 11 minutes. Stirred several times as it cooked. Removed the Skillet from the heat and took the lid off and let it cool for 3 minutes.

 

Fantastic Dish, it was Seasoned perfect, the Pasta was tender and the Ground Turkey and Black Beans were perfect with the Macaroni. Then I also had the slice of Buttered Bread. It made a really good Meal! For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyders Stick Pretzels along with a Coke Zero to drink.
