Today’s Menu Hormel Turkey Chili w/Beans

 

I had a Dinner planned out but due to a Family Emergency I had to go with something quick and easy. My Dad fell last night around 8:30 and we were at the Hospital until 2:00 this morning. He’s doing fine and they sent him back home with us. The time I finally got to bed was around 4:00 this morning. So something quick and easy was Dinner tonight. I prepared a can of Hormel Turkey Chili w/Beans. Topped it with some Sargento Reduced Calorie Shredded Sharp Cheddar and a side of Oyster Crackers. See everyone tomorrow, take care!

This week from the SayersBrook Bison Ranch website (http://www.sayersbrook.com/) its Bison Chili. Chili is good year around but Chili for some reason always taste better in the fall and Winter months. It comes in a 1 lb. serving and all you’ll have to do is heat up and serve! Made healthier also because its made with SayersBrook Ground Bison. The Bison Chili is one of the HEAT ‘N EAT items you can purchase online off the SayersBrook site (http://www.sayersbrook.com/) You can also find Bison Stew, Hams, Chicken, and more! Plus you can also find selections of all the Bison cuts of meat along with Elk, Wild Boar, Ostrich, and more! Now more on the Bison Chili. Enjoy and Eat Healthy!

 

Bison Chili
Our amazingly delicious bison chili, now in convenient 1 lb servings. Pop one in the microwave for a hearty, nutrtitious protein filled and healthy meal.
The making of chili has been elevated to an art form in this country. There are as many different recipes for chili as there are people who love it. After trying many of these, we think ours is by far the best. SayersBrook Bison Chili is based on Mama T’s own recipe. It is a delicious blend of her favorite herbs, spices, tomatoes, and, of course, bison meat. Beans provide additional nutritional value and fiber. The hearty sauce has just the right bite to please the most discriminating palate. When you add the health benefits of our lower fat and lower cholesterol bison meat to the superior flavor of our blend of ingredients, you don’t have a better chili…you have the best.

Kitchen Hint of the Day!

Making Chili……

 

If your chili is too thin, try adding tomato paste to thicken it. Add the tomato paste in small amounts until the desired thickness is reached. If the tomato paste doesn’t work, try a small amount of cornstarch or flour. Some people even say a tablespoon or two of instant mashed potatoes work to thicken a chili. I’ve found the best Chili is cooked in a Crock Pot and let simmer all day! Chili on!

Cook your Chili early……

 

Either cook your chili the day before or early in the morning of the day you’re going to eat it. By cooking the day before, letting it cool, then refrigerating overnight, you give all the flavors in your chili time to blend. If you’re short on time, preparing the chili in the morning and letting it simmer all day is a good method of cooking, get that Crock Pot going!

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

 

 

Feeling a little better today, hopefully I’ll be back to 100% soon! This has been one nasty ear infection. For Breakfast this morning I prepared a Poached Egg, 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Patties, toasted a slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside we had a high of 91 degrees and a bit humid out. But the temps are going to start to fall everyday a bit from here. By the weekend highs in the 60’s and low 70’s. After Lunch I got the Cart out of the shed and the leaf blower and trimmer and got some yard work done. Tonight’s Dinner, 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Johnny Cakes.

 

I’m having my 3 Bean Turkey Chili for Dinner! I’m using my last container that I had in the freezer, so I’ll be making more soon! I sit the container in the fridge overnight to thaw. So today I’ll just empty the contents into a small sauce pan and let it slowly heat on medium low until heated through. The Chili freezes and reheats so easy and tastes like it’s made that day! I also made a small batch of Johnny Cakes which I love having with Chili. I topped my Chili with some fresh shredded Smoked Gouda and a splash or two of Frank’s Hot Sauce. This hit the spot! Below I’ve left the original post on the ingredients and instructions on how to make the 3 Bean Turkey Chili and the Johnny Cakes. Enjoy!

 

When I prepare my Chili I prepare the Ground Turkey and mix the Beans the night before. So the morning I’m making it everything is ready! I had the Crock Pot set up also. To make the Chili I’m using Jennie -O Lean Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast. 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 a 1/2 a 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 and it turns out delicious.

 

The 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.

 

 

 

The Beans and Ground Turkey were prepared last night. I started by opening all 3 cans of Bush Beans into a large bowl and stirred until mixed. Then in the morning, I added the Beans to Crock Pot. 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. Then this morning I added everything to the Crock Pot. Throw in a 1/2 cup of Water, stirred twice, and put the lid on the Crock Pot and set on low for 5-6 hours.

 

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. Also a side of Johnny Cakes, recipe below.

 

 

 

To prepare the Johnny Cakes (I love these…) all you’ll need is: Pam w/ Olive Oil Non – Stick Spray, 1/4 cup Extra Light 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 ingredients 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. The Cornbread works perfect with Chili! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.
