Chili two ways February 8, 2011

Filed under: One dish meal,Soup,Turkey — WannaBe Chef @ 10:24 am

I haven’t been much of a chili fan since before being pregnant.  This is probably because I had to make Wayne and his friend a pot of chili way back early in the pregnancy, and it was all I could do to not vomit into the pot while I was making it.  Then the smell was in the apartment for what seemed like weeks afterwards.  Well, here I am almost 22 weeks along, and I finally decided that chili would be tolerable again. 

Turkey Black Bean Chili
Based on recipe >>>HERE<<<


  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1/2 large onion, diced
  • splash of olive oil for sauteeing
  • 1-2 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 (15 oz) cans black beans, lightly drained
  • 2 (15 oz) cans diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp dry basil
  • 1 tsp dry oregano
  • 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • salt and pepper


  1. In a large soup pot, saute the turkey, onions and garlic in some olive oil until turkey is done. 
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients.
  3. Simmer for 60 minutes or more.

This was soooo yummy!  Even better with some Frank’s, cheese, and cornbread.  Oh yeah, and how could I forget the chili cheese fries we had the next day?!  Amaaaazing.
