SERVED UP SOME TURKEY CHILI!!

When the snow birds come calling, I take it as a cue to comfort my palate. With falling temperatures, it’s important that I find the right dish to warm this stomach of mine. Could have gone a myriad of ways; however, I chose to pay a visit to a familiar dish of mine. Can’t go…

BEEF? WHAT BEEF? #TURKEY CHILI!

A Mexican grandmother would be super-proud of this dish. Though it took approximately an hour to prepare and cook, it tasted like hours of joyful/laborious cooking.

Typically, ground turkey is rather bland in taste especially if the fat content is minimal. As a result, I had to incorporate some intense flavors and spices in order to obtain…
