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

 

For Breakfast I Poached an Egg and served it on a Aunt Millie’s Living Carb Smart English Muffin. I also heated up a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. It’s a cool Fall morning out there, 44 degrees and windy. The rain stopped and the skies cleared. For the Afternoon it was sunny and 58 degrees. I took Mom to her Treatment Appointment then back home to a yard full of leaves. Tis the Fall Season! My Pepper Plants are still producing like crazy, everyone in the neighborhood has plenty of Green Bell Peppers. Cool Fall Day deserves Chili, 3 Bean Turkey Chili! That was my last container in the freezer. Which means I’ll be cooking up a new batch soon. Below I left the original post from last night for recipe directions and ingredients. Take Care and Stay Safe!

 

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, a tablespoon of Jif Creamy Peanut Butter, 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, 2Tbsps Jif Smooth Peanut Butter, 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 Ground Turkey and Bean Mix last night and had it in the fridge. 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.

 

This morning 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. For Dessert latera Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

Today’s Menu: Turkey and Black Bean Tacos

 

For Breakfast this morning I had Ham, Eggs, Toast and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I baked a small (1.7 lb.) Sugar Dale Ham. I sliced a couple of pieces off and served it with a Sunny Side Up Egg. I also toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Bread that I topped with I can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. One Delicious Breakfast! 81 degrees, humid with rain showers in the morning. Did a load of laundry right after Breakfast. Added potting soil to a few of the indoor plants and repotted one to a larger pot. Then later I cleaned the kitchen. Scrubbed down the microwave and fridge and sprayed Lysol throughout the house. For Dinner tonight, Turkey and Black Bean Tacos.

 

I know it’s not Taco Tuesday, but around here it’s Taco Saturday! When making Turkey Tacos I always use Jennie -O Ground Turkey Breast! Love all the Jennie -O Turkey Products, always fresh and low calorie and low carb. I started by frying the Ground Turkey till it was no longer pink in Extra Virgin Olive Oil and seasoning it with Sea Salt, Ground Roasted Cumin, and Cilantro Flakes. As the Turkey was finishing cooking I added 1 can Bush’s Chili Black Beans, 1 package of Old El Paso Low Sodium Taco Seasoning and 3/4 cup Water, and continued to cook and stir for an additional 6 minutes. Jennie -O and Old El Paso together make some fine Tacos!

 

For toppings I used; Sargento Reduced Fat 4 Cheese Mexican, Sliced Black Olives, Sliced Green Olives, Ortega Smoky Chipotle Taco Sauce (my favorite), Sliced Jalapenos, and Shredded Lettuce. For my Taco Shells I used the Old El Paso Stand N’ Stuff Taco Shells (Whole Grain Corn). Add the Turkey and you have some mouth watering and delicious Tacos! Love these Taco Meal Nights.

Today’s Menu: Turkey and Black Bean Tacos

 

 

To start the day off I made some French Toast. I used Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Wheat Bread, Egg Beaters, 2% Milk, Ground Nutmeg, and Ground Cinnamon. Mix all the ingredients, except the Bread, in a bowl until well mixed. Heat up a skillet sprayed with Pam Non Stick Spray and Blue Bonnet Light Butter. Dip the Bread in the mix and shake off the excess. Then add the Bread and fry until Golden on both sides. I love French Toast! I topped the Toast with the Butter and Log Cabin Sugar Free Maple Syrup. I also heated up 2 Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Fantastic Breakfast! Outside today, 76 degrees, windy, and cloudy. I met a couple of friends at the West Chester Farmer’s Market. Only my 2nd time there. It’s a whole lot bigger and more expensive since my last visit. Back home it was the usual, watered all the plants and cleaned up the deck and driveway areas. Later I did a load of laundry for Mom. Dinner tonight, Turkey and Black Bean Tacos.
