Today’s Menu: 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Cornbread

 

To start this morning off I prepared a Ham and Cheese Omelet. I used 2 medium size Eggs, Kroger Diced Ham, and Sargento Off the Block Sharp Cheddar Cheese. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. 71 degrees, with a cool breeze, and sunny out there today! Our streak of beautiful days continue! After Breakfast I did a couple of loades of laundry. Next it was house cleaning day, dusted and ran the vacuum. Had everything done and got the cart out and rode around for a while. And what a better day than today for Chili! For Dinner tonight its my 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Cornbread.

 

I had not made my Chili in a while, and it was long over due! To make my Chili I’m using Jennie -O Lean Ground Turkey, 2 – 1lb. packages. The 3 Beans I use are 1 Can (16 oz.) Bush’s Chili Beans (Black Beans), 1 Can (16 oz.) Bush’s Chili Beans ( Kidney Beans), 1 Can (16 oz.) Bush’s Chili Beans (Great Northern Beans) drained and rinsed, Then I mix in 1 Red Onion (medium Chopped or Minced), 1 Jalapeno Pepper (Seeded and Chopped), and 3 Cloves Minced Garlic. For my spices I use 1 Packet McCormick Chili Mix, 2 Cans (6 oz.) Hunt’s Tomato Paste (2 cans),4 Cloves Minced Garlic, 2 tsp Ground Anchio Chile Pepper, 2 tsp Ground Paprika, 1 Tbs. Ground Chile Seasoning, 2 Tbs. Ground Roasted Cumin, 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon, 1 tbsp of Cilantro Leaves and 5 Dashes of Frank’s Hot Sauce or to taste (I usually add a lot more dashes!). What’s good about this recipe you can use your own favorite Spices and make your own tweaks to it.

 

First thing I do is get the Crock Pot out and put in a Glad Crock Pot Liner. The Liners are incredible, just line your Crock Pot with one and spray it with Pam Cooking Spray. Now you are set to go. It makes for one easy clean up, just remove it when done and give the inside of your Crock Pot a quick wipe down and your clean up is done! On with the recipe.

 

I prepared the Beans and Ground Turkey last night. To prepare the Turkey, I started by browning the Jennie -O Ground Turkey. Using a large skillet sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Preheat the skillet on medium heat. When heated I add the Ground Turkey and all the Seasonings and Tomato Paste, stirring often. When the Turkey has browned I put it in a large plastic container and on into the fridge after it had cooled a bit. Next I opened all 3 cans of Bush Beans into a large bowl and stirred until mixed. Stored them in a bowl and in the fridge also.

 

Then this morning I added everything to the Crock Pot. I also added a 1/2 cup of Water, stirred twice, and put the lid on the Crock Pot and set on low for 5-6 hours. The full recipe and list of ingredients is at the end of the post. Then sit back and enjoy the aroma, that usually starts after an hour or so of simmering! I love a thick Chili and this one works! The Jennie – O Ground Turkey combined with all those Beans and Spices is a perfect match. Served it topped with some Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese and a couple of shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce.

 

I just love the aroma of the simmering Chili, that usually starts after an hour or so of simmering! I love a thick Chili and this one works! The Jennie – O Ground Turkey combined with all those Beans and Spices is a perfect match. Served it topped with some Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese and a couple of shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. I’ll be using the Leftover Chili in a couple of different ways for the couple of days, can’t wait! Chili is even better after sitting in the fridge for a day!

 

I also prepared a small Cast Iron Skillet of Cornbread. For the Corn Bread I’m using Martha White White Corn Meal. The Cornbread goes perfect with Chili! Then for Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Leftover Turkey and Black Bean Mini Street Tacos and Refried Beans

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, heated up some Meijer Diced Ham, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hash Browns in a bowl and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Another repeat in our weather except its more humid! High of 94 degrees and real humid! After Breakfast I got some yard work done. I wanted to get it done before the heat and humidity got too bad. Not much else going on, stayed in and kept cool! For Dinner tonight, Leftover Turkey and Black Bean Street Tacos and Refried Beans. I reheated everything. I was going to prepare something else but Mom insisted on these leftovers. This is one of her favorites! I left the original post from yesterday below for instructions and description of the recipe. Stay Safe and Take Care All!

 

When making Turkey Tacos I always use my favorite, Jennie -O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast! Love all the Jennie -O Turkey Products, always fresh and low calorie and low carb. But Jennie -O Products are difficult to find in this area. Meijer is the only place that now carries it, and they have a good selection of it. 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, Cilantro Flakes. As the Turkey was finishing cooking I added, 1 can OF Bush’s Chili Beans – Black Beans, 1 package of Old El Paso Low Sodium Taco Seasoning and 2/3 cup Water, continued to cook and stir for an additional 6 minutes. Jennie -O, Bush’s Beans, and Mission Tacos together make one fine Taco!

 

 

For the rest of my toppings I used; Sargento Reduced Fat 4 Cheese Mexican, Sliced Black Olives, Sliced Green Olives, Ortega Smoky Chipotle Taco Sauce, Sliced Jalapenos, Shredded Lettuce, and Mission Street Taco Flour Tortillas. These Tortilla are so good and taste so fresh. For Dessert later some Honeycrisp Apple Slices.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mission Street Taco Flour Tortillas

Mission Street Taco Flour Tortillas may be miniature in size, but they’re still big on flavor. Our flour tortillas have a soft texture and authentic, fresh baked flavor that makes them the perfect complement to any culinary combination you can imagine. Whether you fill them with traditional carne asada or switch it up with tandoori shrimp, our tortillas will inspire a world of possibilities. You can also feel good about serving our tortillas to your friends because they’re certified kosher and don’t contain any trans fat or cholesterol. We recommend making a batch of muffaletta roll ups filled with ham, salami, cheese, and olive spread. Includes one 12 ct package of Mission Street Taco Flour Tortillas.

* One 12 count package of Mission Street Taco Flour Tortillas
* Soft texture and authentic taste

Today’s Menu: Leftovers – 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Johnny Cakes

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 84 degrees and sunny out today. After Breakfast I did a load of laundry and then later I cleaned the house, dusted, vacuum, and cleaned the fridge and microwave. Done for the day. For Dinner tonight I got the last 2 containers of the leftover 3 Bean Turkey Chili out of the freezer and heated that up. So it’s 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Johnny Cakes. I’ve left a previous post for the ingredients and directions. I’ll be making a new Batch soon! I also made some Johnny Cakes to go with the Chili Take care all!

 

To make my Chili I’m using Jennie -O Lean Ground Turkey. The 3 Beans I use are 1 Can (16 oz.) Bush’s Chili Beans (Black Beans), 1 Can (16 oz.) Bush’s Chili Beans ( Kidney Beans), 1 Can (16 oz.) Bush’s Chili Beans (Great Northern Beans) drained and rinsed, Then I mix in 1 Red Onion (medium Chopped or Minced), 1 Jalapeno Pepper (Seeded and Chopped), and 3 Cloves Minced Garlic. For my spices I use 1 Packet McCormick Chili Mix, 2 Cans (6 oz.) Hunt’s Tomato Paste (2 cans), 1/2 Tsp Ground Cocoa Chili Blend (McCormick), 1/2 Tsp Ground Chipotle Chili Pepper (McCormick), 2 Tbs. Ground Roasted Cumin (McCormick), 2 tbsp Ground Cinnamon (McCormick), 1 Tbs of Cilantro Leaves (McCormick), and 5 Dashes of Frank’s Hot Sauce or to taste (I usually add a lot more dashes!). What’s good about this recipe you can use your own favorite Spices and make your own tweaks to it.

 

First thing I do is get the Crock Pot out and put in a Glad Crock Pot Liner. The Liners are incredible, just line your Crock Pot with one and spray it with Pam Cooking Spray. Now you are set to go. It makes for one easy clean up, just remove it when done and give the inside of your Crock Pot a quick wipe down and your clean up is done! On with the recipe.

 

 

I prepared the Beans and Ground Turkey last night. To prepare the Turkey, I started by browning the Jennie -O Ground Turkey. Using a large skillet sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Preheat the skillet on medium heat. When heated I add the Ground Turkey and all the Seasonings and Tomato Paste, stirring often. When the Turkey has browned I put it in a large plastic container and on into the fridge after it had cooled a bit. Next I opened all 3 cans of Bush Beans into a large bowl and stirred until mixed. Stored them in a bowl and in the fridge also.

 

Then this morning I added everything to the Crock Pot. I also added a 1/2 cup of Water, stirred twice, and put the lid on the Crock Pot and set on low for 5-6 hours. The full recipe and list of ingredients is at the end of the post. Then sit back and enjoy the aroma, that usually starts after an hour or so of simmering! I love a thick Chili and this one works! The Jennie – O Ground Turkey combined with all those Beans and Spices is a perfect match. Served it topped with some Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese and a couple of shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce.

 

I just love the aroma of the simmering Chili, that usually starts after a couple of hours or so of simmering! I love a thick Chili and this one works! The Jennie – O Ground Turkey combined with all those Beans and Spices is a perfect match. Served it topped with some Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese and a couple of shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. I’ll be using the Leftover Chili in a couple of different ways for the couple of days, can’t wait! Chili is even better after sitting in the fridge for a day!

 

 

To prepare Johnny Cakes all you’ll need is: Pam w/ Olive Oil Non – Stick Spray, 1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1 3/4 cups Low Fat Buttermilk, and 2 cups Martha White Self Rising Enriched White Corn Meal Mix. Just mix all your 3 Bean Turkey Chili w Johnny Cakes 004ingredients in a large bowl. Spray your Pam on a Flat Top Griddle or large Skillet and preheat on medium low, I use the Flat Top Griddle. When the Griddle is heated add your batter. You can make the Cakes any size you want from half-dollar size to regular pancake size cakes. After the bottom side turns golden brown flip over and let the other side get golden brown. To serve I placed mine on a plate and topped it with my 3 Bean Chili and Shredded Cheese. And now it’s Comfort Food Heaven! Chili and Cornbread are meant to be together!

Today’s Menu: 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Cornbread Muffins

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. Sunny and 82 degrees out! After my Tea I got my Chili in the Crock Pot to cook on low all day. Then I had to be at Kroger at 9:00 this morning to pick up an order. Got it home and I to return 1/2 the order, they gave me the wrong items! So I went back to Kroger and got a mobility cart and went in to return the items. I had my mask on, and returned the items and went ahead did some shopping. I found all the items I needed and all the items they said were out of stock. Proves the old saying true, If you want something done right do it yourself! Anyway that’s the first time I went into a store in over a month. Got the cart out back home and rode around, enjoying the beautiful weather. For Dinner tonight its my 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Cornbread Muffins.

To make my Chili I’m using Jennie -O Lean Ground Turkey. The 3 Beans I use are 1 Can (16 oz.) Bush’s Chili Beans (Black Beans), 1 Can (16 oz.) Bush’s Chili Beans ( Kidney Beans), 1 Can (16 oz.) Bush’s Chili Beans (Great Northern Beans) drained and rinsed, Then I mix in 1 Red Onion (medium Chopped or Minced), 1 Jalapeno Pepper (Seeded and Chopped), and 3 Cloves Minced Garlic. For my spices I use 1 Packet McCormick Chili Mix, 2 Cans (6 oz.) Hunt’s Tomato Paste (2 cans), 1/2 Tsp Ground Cocoa Chili Blend (McCormick), 1/2 Tsp Ground Chipotle Chili Pepper (McCormick), 2 Tbs. Ground Roasted Cumin (McCormick), 2 tbsp Ground Cinnamon (McCormick), 1 Tbs of Cilantro Leaves (McCormick), and 5 Dashes of Frank’s Hot Sauce or to taste (I usually add a lot more dashes!). What’s good about this recipe you can use your own favorite Spices and make your own tweaks to it.

 

First thing I do is get the Crock Pot out and put in a Glad Crock Pot Liner. The Liners are incredible, just line your Crock Pot with one and spray it with Pam Cooking Spray. Now you are set to go. It makes for one easy clean up, just remove it when done and give the inside of your Crock Pot a quick wipe down and your clean up is done! On with the recipe.

 

I prepared the Beans and Ground Turkey last night. To prepare the Turkey, I started by browning the Jennie -O Ground Turkey. Using a large skillet sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Preheat the skillet on medium heat. When heated I add the Ground Turkey and all the Seasonings and Tomato Paste, stirring often. When the Turkey has browned I put it in a large plastic container and on into the fridge after it had cooled a bit. Next I opened all 3 cans of Bush Beans into a large bowl and stirred until mixed. Stored them in a bowl and in the fridge also.

 

Then this morning I added everything to the Crock Pot. I also added a 1/2 cup of Water, stirred twice, and put the lid on the Crock Pot and set on low for 5-6 hours. The full recipe and list of ingredients is at the end of the post. Then sit back and enjoy the aroma, that usually starts after an hour or so of simmering! I love a thick Chili and this one works! The Jennie – O Ground Turkey combined with all those Beans and Spices is a perfect match. Served it topped with some Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese and a couple of shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce.

 

I just love the aroma of the simmering Chili, that usually starts after a couple of hours or so of simmering! I love a thick Chili and this one works! The Jennie – O Ground Turkey combined with all those Beans and Spices is a perfect match. Served it topped with some Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese and a couple of shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. I’ll be using the Leftover Chili in a couple of different ways for the couple of days, can’t wait! Chili is even better after sitting in the fridge for a day!

 

I also prepared a small batch of Cornbread Muffins. For the Corn Bread I’m using Martha White White Corn Meal. The Cornbread goes perfect with Chili! Then for Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Leftover Turkey and Black Bean Mini Street Tacos and Refried Beans

 

For Breakfast this morning I had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 61 degrees and partly cloudy out today, still windy though! Had to move the cars out of the driveway and all outdoor furniture off the deck this morning. We are having our house sprayed down and cleaned. We get it done once a year in early Spring. They also spray down and scrub the driveway and shed. We might as well get everything in shape while we are in isolation! For Dinner tonight, Leftover Turkey and Black Bean Street Tacos and Refried Beans. I reheated some of items for this and cooked the remaining Ground Turkey. I left the original post from the other day below for instructions and description of the recipe. Take Care All!

 

When making Turkey Tacos I always use my favorite, Jennie -O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast! Love all the Jennie -O Turkey Products, always fresh and low calorie and low carb. But Jennie -O Products are difficult to find in this area. Meijer is the only place that now carries it, and they have a good selection of it. 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, Cilantro Flakes. As the Turkey was finishing cooking I added, 1 can OF Bush’s Chili Beans – Black Beans, 1 package of Old El Paso Low Sodium Taco Seasoning and 2/3 cup Water, continued to cook and stir for an additional 6 minutes. Jennie -O, Bush’s Beans, and Mission Tacos together make one fine Taco!

 

For the rest of my toppings I used; Sargento Reduced Fat 4 Cheese Mexican, Sliced Black Olives, Sliced Green Olives, Ortega Smoky Chipotle Taco Sauce, Sliced Jalapenos, Shredded Lettuce, and Mission Street Taco Flour Tortillas. These Tortilla are so good and taste so fresh. Love these Taco Nights. I also heated up a can of Old El Paso Fat Free Refried Beans for a side for Mom. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Sprite Zero to drink.

For Breakfast on this I had a toasted Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. You can find almost everything on line or by pick up now in the grocery departments, finally. Paper Towel, Tissues, and cleaning products are still tough though. We’ll get by, we will all get by! For Dinner tonight its Turkey Brat Dogs and Beans.

 

To prepare it; I first started by preparing the Turkey Bratwursts. I used Johnsonville Turkey Bratwursts. I bought these from Meijer which carries the the full line of Johnsonville Products. I prepared them in a 3-quart saucepan. Sprayed the skillet with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Cooked them for about 21 minutes until cooked through. They browned up perfect, one good tasting Brat! I served it on a Healthy Life Wheat Hot Dog Bun, topping it with French’s Spicy Brown Mustard.

 

 

For a side I prepared a can of Bush’s Country Style Baked Beans. Just open the can and empty the Beans Into Saucepan. Heat To Simmer until heated through. Love these Bush’s Beans! Brats and Beans Dinner tonight! For Dessert later some Honey Crisp Apple slices.
