Today’s Menu: Turkey Chili Mac and Cheese w/ Corn Bread

 

 

Just a cup of Bigeloe Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast this morning. After my Tea I headed out to Meijer for a few items, didn’t need much just wanted to get out a bit. Mostly sunny and 41 degrees out today. On the way back home I picked up Breakfast for Mom at McDonald’s. Headed back out and went to the ATM, stopped and got gas, and then took Mom’s car up and had it washed. Not a lot going on today, just did a few things around the house. For dinner tonight I prepared 3 Bean Turkey Chili Mac and Cheese w/ Corn Bread.

 

 

I had a container of my 3 Bean Turkey Chili from last night’s Dinner in the fridge. If I was 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. With toppings of Sargento Off the Block Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese and Oyster Crackers. I just added the leftover Chili to a sauce pan and heated it on low, stirring often until heated through. Set aside as my Pasta was cooking. For the full recipe and cooking instructions of the 3 Bean Turkey Chili just click the link, (https://beatcancer2010.wordpress.com/2020/02/18/3-bean-turkey-chili-w-cornbread-2/)

 

For my Elbow Pasta I used DereamFields Elbows. It’s tough finding Whole Grain Pastas, at least around here where I live. Used to be I could find it at most any Grocery Store. The DreamFields is all I could find at Meijer earlier. It’s 190 calories and 36 net carbs per serving, cooks up great, and good taste. Filled a large pot up 1/2 way with water and added salt. Heated the water on high until boiling and added the Pasta. Cooked it for 7 minutes.

 

 

 

When done removed it from the pot and drained. Add it back to the pot and add the heated 3 Bean Turkey Chili and mix with a large spoon, heat on low and mix well. And it’s ready to serve! You can top it with Cheese, Hot Sauce, Sour Cream, or Diced Onions. I just always use the Cheese and Hot Sauce for my toppings. To serve just grab a bowl and scoop out the amount that you want. Add your toppings, if any, and enjoy! The 3 Bean Turkey Chili works perfect with Elbow Pasta. Such a good Comfort Food Dish!

 

 

 

To go with the Chili Mac I also made a small Cast Iron Skillet of Corn Bread. For the Corn Bread I’m using Martha White White Corn Meal. First Corn Bread I’ve made in a while and it’s just as good as it always was! What a meal 3 Bean Turkey Chili Mac and Cheese w/ Corn Bread. Then for Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s of Hanover Stick Pretzels and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

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

 

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. We had showers in the morning and cloudy later on, high of 51 degrees but dropping during the afternoon. Cleaned House, did some laundry, and made some Chili for the day! 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 Dr. Pepper to drink.

Chili-Cheese Nachos
Make nachos a healthy dinner when you top them with an easy 30-minute chili. Serve this healthy recipe with sliced scallions, avocado, fresh tomatoes and sour cream, if desired…………….

Garlic-Parmesan Chicken Wings
Forget the fryer–these baked garlic-Parmesan chicken wings get a crispy coating (without tons of oil) from panko breadcrumbs combined with grated Parmesan cheese. A drizzle of balsamic vinegar glaze gives this healthy appetizer a sweet and tangy finishing note……………………….

Chili con Carne
This chili con carne with ground beef is a serious crowd-pleaser, whether you’re hosting a football-watching party or just feeding a hungry family. It has a nice, beefy, beany flavor and just enough spice. You’ll be surprised that a chili that comes together in less than an hour has so much flavor. Three types of chile peppers (fresh poblanos, chili powder and chipotles in adobo) add depth and complexity. Poblanos also add some color to the chili–if you can’t find them, you can sub bell peppers of any color, though they won’t add heat. Using lean ground beef makes this chili healthier and also keeps it from being greasy. Be sure to brown the beef well for the best flavor: you want to stir to break up the chunks, but don’t stir too much or the beef won’t sear at all. Serve with cornbread and bowls of sour cream, chopped avocado, tomatoes, scallions, cilantro and hot sauce and let everyone customize their own bowl……………………

Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week – TEXAS RED CHILI

December 11, 2019 at 6:02 AM | Posted in Wild Idea Buffalo | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

This week’s Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week is – TEXAS RED CHILI. Made using Wild Idea Buffalo Chuck Roast, mild and medium hot chilies, onions, garlic, spices, and to heat up a bit more cayenne pepper. You can find this recipe or purchase the Wild Idea Buffalo Chuck Roast along with all the other Wild Idea Products at the Wild Idea Buffalo website. Just love the Fall and Winter Seasons, it just seems to elevate all the Chili, Soup, or Stew recipes to a different flavor level! Enjoy and Make 2019 a Healthy One! https://wildideabuffalo.com/

TEXAS RED CHILI
For all of you non-bean chili lovers, this recipe is for you! In addition to the instructions below, I would gather and prep all of the ingredients before starting the process, as I found I needed to stir frequently. To avoid getting the chili too hot, I used a combination of mild and medium hot chilies. You can adjust the heat to your liking with cayenne pepper. I stayed true to the San Antonio recipe, using lots of onions, garlic, spices, and Wild Idea Buffalo Chuck Roast. The preparation was easy and I have to say the end result was pretty darn good! I hope you enjoy it too.

*A personal note on my introduction to Texas style chili can be found below recipe.

Ingredients:

1 – 3 lb. Wild Idea Buffalo Chuck Roast, rinsed, patted dry and cut into 1/4” pieces

4 – tablespoons olive oil

4 – tablespoons butter

1/3 – cup masa/corn flour
2 – tablespoons Mexican oregano

2 – tablespoons cumin

2 – tablespoons Mexican chili powder

Wild Idea Buffalo Chuck Roast

1 – tablespoon salt

1 – teaspoon black pepper

3 – Texas sweet onions, about 7 cups

6 – garlic cloves, diced, about 3 tablespoons

2 – cups organic beef broth

2 – cups water

4 – dried Ancho chilies, stems removed, seeded and coarse chopped

6 – dried medium red chilies, stems removed, seeded and coarse chopped

1 – fresh Serrano chili, stem removed, seeded and finely chopped

1 – tablespoon brown sugar
¼ – cup fresh squeezed lime juice

*optional ½ – teaspoon cayenne pepper

 

Preparation:

1 – Prep ingredients. Spread meat out onto a large baking sheet and sprinkle with the corn flour.

2 – In a large cast iron or heavy pot, over medium high heat, heat pan and add 2 tablespoons each of the butter and olive oil.

3 – Add half of the floured meat to the pan and allow to brown, stirring occasionally, scraping the bottom up to keep browning even. Remove browned meat from pan with a spoon and place on a plate. Repeat this step with the remaining butter, olive oil and meat.

4 – Add the first browned meat back to the pot, along with the seasonings, stirring to incorporate.

5 – Add chopped onions and garlic, again stirring occasionally, scraping up the bottom. Allow the onions and garlic to cook for about 7 minutes.

6 – Add the broth and water to the pot, stirring again as above.

7 – Reduce heat to simmer and cover the pot.

8 – Place all of the diced chilies in a food processor (small ones work best) and chop. After peppers are a bit more chopped, add ½ cup of the pot liquids to the processor and blend again, creating more of a paste.

9 – Add the pepper paste to the pot, stir to incorporate and cover. Allow the chili to simmer for a couple of hours, stirring as above occasionally.

10 – When the meat is tender, add the brown sugar and lime juice. Stir to incorporate, and allow to simmer a few more minutes.

11 – Taste, and adjust seasoning to your taste, adding the cayenne if more heat is needed.

*My introduction to “RED”: On a trip headed south for a little winter quail hunting, we made a stop in San Antonio, at the Pearl restaurant. Listed on the menu was a bowl of “Red”. The waiter proudly informed us that it was real authentic Texas Chili, that it was all meat with no beans, and that the chef had just perfected their recipe. We ordered a cup to share – it was delicious. I was curious about the history of this famous Texas dish, so I did a little research.

As the waiter stated, the recipes I found for Texas chili were bean-less and loaded with onions and chilies. I learned a few other interesting facts including, that the chili pepper was not native to this continent. A Spaniard named Don Juan de Onate first brought chili peppers into New Mexico in 1598. They soon after became a staple throughout the southwest. It was later on around 1723, when Canary Island transplants had settled in San Antonio that the meat dish first became known. It was a replication from their homeland, made with local peppers, onions, garlic, and spices. This became know as a bowl of “Red”. Red chili soon became a favorite of the cowboys on the trail, with the camp cook using beef or buffalo. And, according to Lyndon Baines Johnson, “Chili concocted outside of Texas is usually a weak, apologetic imitation of the real thing.” I’m not so sure about that….

Get the most out of your Home Made Chili…………

Use that leftover chili all week! Chili doesn’t have to go into a bowl and eaten with a spoon. Make chili dogs, have a taco night, eat it for breakfast with eggs on top, or in a omelet. Toss it with pasta, or serve on top of baked potatoes. Enjoy that CHILI!
