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

 

 

To start my morning off I Poached an Egg and served it on a toasted Thomas Light 100% Whole Grain English Muffin. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly cloudy, humid, and a high of 97 degrees outside today.
Long day on the phone with my Supplement insurance, Anthem Blue Cross. I’ve had my policy since around 2004, I became disabled in 2001. I had always made my payments but for the last 2 years I have to call my payment in because for some reason they couldn’t take it out automatically. Well now I get a letter that I owe them $7,600 dollars because they said they increased my rates in 2017 because I’m disabled! I was never informed of this increase or I would have canceled my policy. Now they want $854 a month for a Supplement Policy!! And I owe them back pay to cover the new rate since early 2017! I’m not happy right now. And it’s still unresolved! NOT HAPPY! I’ll let you know how it turns out. So for Dinner tonight its 3 Bean Turkey Chili along with some Johnny Cakes.

 

I had the 3 Bean Chili in the freezer. So I sat a container of it in the fridge overnight to thaw. The Chili freezes and reheats so easy. I’ll have to make some more, it’s my last container! To reheat the Chili; I’ll use a small sauce pan, spray it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray, add the Chili to the pan, and heat slowly on medium low heat until heated through. The Chili is just as good as it was when it was made! To go with the Chili I made some Johnny Cakes. I love the combination of Chili and Cornbread! I’ve left the original post which gives the ingredients and directions on making the Chili. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

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 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. I love the combination of Chili and Cornbread!

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

 

For Breakfast on this Chilly Monday morning I fried up some Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links. I also fried a Sunnyside Up Egg, toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. As I mentioned it’s Chilli out there. Went out to get the morning paper and it was 30 degrees with a cold breeze, 53 degrees and cloudy out for the day. Did some house cleaning after Lunch and finished up some laundry for Mom. Pretty quiet Monday today. A good day to make a Slow Cooker 3 Bean Turkey Chili! Dinner tonight its 3 Bean Turkey Chili along with some Johnny Cakes.
