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

 

To start this morning off I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. I also prepared a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. 25 degrees, snow flurries and cloudy out all day. Possible 1-2 inches of more snow coming in later tonight. Went and picked up Breakfast for Mom and stopped by the Bank for her. Not a lot going today, caught up on everything. And like yesterday, what a better way than Chili to heat up this cold Winter’s day! For Dinner tonight it’s Leftover 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Cornbread. We thought one more day of Chili would be great. I’m freezing the rest. I left yesterday’s post below for ingredients and directions. Stay Safe and Enjoy!

 

I love making a batch of my 3 Bean Turkey Chili! 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.

 

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 aside and mixed my Beans. I opened all 3 cans of Bush Beans into a large bowl and stirred until mixed.

 

Next I turned the Slow Cooker on Low, sprayed the cooker liner with Pam Non Stick Spray, and added a 1/2 cup of Water to it. Let heat for about 20 minutes and I added everything to the Crock Pot. I’ll be cooking my Chili for 6 – 7 hours. Then sit back and enjoy the aroma, 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 meals , can’t wait! Chili is even better after sitting in the fridge for a day! The full recipe and list of ingredients is at the end of the post.

 

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 Cherry Jello.

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

 

 

To start this morning off I prepared a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. We got our biggest snowfall sine 1992. Some areas have 10 inches. We have about 8-9 inches with more on the way tonight, Wednesday, and the weekend! My neighbor cleared most of our driveway with his snow blower/plow. Then I hit it with the Salt. By 1:00 the driveway was almost cleared and I was able to use the snow shovel to clear the rest out. I’ll salt it again later tonight. It’s a pain to shovel snow from a wheelchair but you have to get things done. What a better way than Chili to heat up this cold Winter’s day! For Dinner tonight it’s my 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Cornbread. I prepared the Chili yesterday afternoon. So it was ready to be heated up for Dinner tonight.

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

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs and toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly Cloudy and a high of 53 degrees! Not bad for the end of December. I took advantage of the nice weather and got my cart out of the shed. I did a few things around the yard and picked up a lot of boxes and trash that had landed in our yard from the heavy winds the night before. It had knocked over quite a few garbage cans that had been set by the curb for pick up. Good to get out before the weather turns on Christmas Day, wind chill near zero! ‘Tis the Season! So for Dinner tonight I got the last container 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 and Stay Safe!

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!

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/ Cheese and Tortilla Rounds

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 27 degrees out this morning, heavy frost. Sunny, windy, and 49 degrees for the afternoon. After Tea I took Mom to Mejeir, she needed some more books to read. She chooses what she wants and then she goes back out to the car. I don’t like her in a store right now with the increase of virus cases here in Ohio. In fact a 10:00 pm starts tomorrow night for 21 days. Here we go again! People are already hoard buying on almost all items and now stores have put a limit of 2 on all cleaning and paper products. As I said here we go again! For Dinner tonight I prepared some 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Cheese and Tortilla Rounds.

 

I made some of my Crock Pot 3 Bean Turkey Chili yesterday. I’ll be freezing 1 1/2 containers. I kept out enough for Dinner tonight. So it’s an easy dish to make tonight. I’ll need to heat up the leftover 3 Bean Turkey Chili, Frank’s Hot Sauce, Daisy Reduced Fat Sour Cream, Sargento Off the Block Sharp Cheddar Cheese, and Mission Tortilla Rounds. When making my Chili I use a Crock Pot and let it simmer all day! To make it I use; 2 – 1 lb. packages of Jennie – O Ground Turkey Breast, many Spices, 1 Packet McCormick Chili Mix, and Frank’s Hot Sauce. To reheat; I just added the Chili to a sauce pan and heated it on low, stirring often until heated through. Set aside until needed.

 

As I said I’m serving the Chili with some Frank’s Hot Sauce, Daisy Reduced Fat Sour Cream, and Sargento Off the Block Sharp Cheddar Cheese. For the Tortilla Chips I’m using Mission Tortilla Rounds.

 

 

 

 

To make it I got a bowl and made a bed of the Tortilla Rounds. Topped with some of the Chili, Hot Sauce, and Cheese. I had the Sour Cream on the side of the Bowl. Fantastic Light Meal. The Mission Tortilla Rounds are excellent Chips! I love using the 3 Bean Chili as many ways as I can, its so delicious! So for Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Ice Cream topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Hot Fudge Chocolate Topping.

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

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 62 degrees and cloudy out today, with rain showers moving in late afternoon. I went out to get the morning papers and it was your typical Autumn Morning out there. The East skies were orange, yellow, and blue then to the West and North the skies were grey and black. Bit of breeze that was rustling the leaves, and there is a ton of leaves on the ground. Fall has set in here in Ohio! After Breakfast I did a load of laundry and then later I cleaned the house, dusted and vacuum. 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!

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 Grated Smoked Gouda 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!

 

 

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! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Cheese and Tortilla Rounds

 

 

 

To start my day off I toasted Thomas Light English Muffin and topped it with Smucker’s Sugar Free Black Raspberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Beautiful Fall Day out there, sunny and 72 degrees out! After Lunch I got the Cart, rake, and leaf blower all out of the shed. Did some yard work and enjoyed that sunshine! I helped one of my neighbors do some yard work. For Dinner tonight I prepared some 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Cheese and Tortilla Rounds.

 

I made some of my Crock Pot 3 Bean Turkey Chili yesterday. I’ll be freezing 1 1/2 containers. I kept out enough for Dinner tonight. So it’s an easy dish to make tonight. I’ll need to heat up the leftover 3 Bean Turkey Chili, Frank’s Hot Sauce, Daisy Reduced Fat Sour Cream, Sargento Off the Block Sharp Cheddar Cheese, and Mission Tortilla Rounds. When making my Chili I use a Crock Pot and let it simmer all day! To make it I use; 2 – 1 lb. packages of Jennie – O Ground Turkey Breast, many Spices, 1 Packet McCormick Chili Mix, and Frank’s Hot Sauce. To reheat; I just added the Chili to a sauce pan and heated it on low, stirring often until heated through. Set aside until needed.

 

 

As I said I’m serving the Chili with some Frank’s Hot Sauce, Daisy Reduced Fat Sour Cream, and Sargento Off the Block Sharp Cheddar Cheese. For the Tortilla Chips I’m using Mission Tortilla Rounds.

 

To make it I got a bowl and made a bed of the Tortilla Rounds. Topped with some of the Chili, Hot Sauce, and Cheese. I had the Sour Cream on the side of the Bowl. Fantastic Light Meal. The Mission Tortilla Rounds are excellent Chips! I love using the 3 Bean Chili as many ways as I can, its so delicious! So for Dessert later tonight I’m having a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

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.

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.

To start my day off I toasted Thomas Light English Muffin and topped it with Smucker’s Sugar Free Black Raspberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Beautiful Spring Day out there, sunny and 65 degrees out! But once again we have a beautiful day today with 2 days of rain moving in tonight. Lot of rain this year. So I got a few things done here in the house and after Lunch I got the Cart, rake, weed spray, and leaf blower all out of the shed. Did some yard work and enjoyed that sunshine! I helped one of my neighbors, he was clearing some space to get his garden out. It’s been a good day! For Dinner tonight I prepared some 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Cheese and Tortilla Rounds.

 

I had made some of my Crock Pot 3 Bean Turkey Chili over the weekend. We had it for Dinner Saturday and I froze one container. I kept out enough for Dinner tonight.
