A great recipe for watching NCAA Final Four


Many have asked for my turkey chili recipe which is based on my son-in-law’s wonderful recipe so since this week’s news is so depressing, let’s focus on a great meal!

You may add diced jalapeno or serrano peppers to heat it up.

  • 1 lb ground turkey/lean ground beef
  • 16 oz can of dark kidney beans 
  • 16 oz can of light red kidney beans
  • 28 oz can of crushed tomatoes
  • ¼ cup bourbon

Seasoning Mix:
1 tbsp. chili powder
2 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. ground oregano
1 tbsp. Lawry’s seasoned salt
3 dried chili pepper, crushed, 
1 tsp. instant minced onion
1/2 tsp. garlic powder

Cook meat thoroughly, add beans, tomatoes, bourbon and seasoning mix.  Stir, simmer on low heat for several hours while it thickens. Eat it plain or put in tortillas with grated cheese, sour cream, and onions (or any combination).

And watch a great old movie on the tube and ignore this week’s news.
