Snow and Chili

DSC04877

It has snowed all day. It was snowing at 5:00 am when I got up and is still snowing at 7:45 pm.

Dear Colorado,

What happened to fall?

Love,

Me (who loves fall!)

Anyways it is cold and when it is cold I like nice warm cozy foods…ala…Chili! Mr. Gaunt and I made this in a GIANT pot (lots of leftovers) and it was so easy and so yummy! Here is the recipe, its kind of dump and stir sort of deal:

INGREDIENTS:

1 Medium Onion

1 lb Extra Lean Jenny-o Ground Turkey (the lean had 8gr of fat and the extra-lean has 1.5)

1 Can Black Beans

1 Can Pinto Beans

1 Can corn

1 Can Diced tomatoes with Chili’s (or any kind of tomatoes)

1 Small can of Tomato Paste

1 Packet Low Sodium Chilli seasoning

1/2 Can Water

Fat Free Sour Cream

Low Fat shredded Cheese

DIRECTIONS:

Dice and saute onion, add turkey and cook throughly.

In a large pot add everything (except cheese and sour cream)! Then stir in the onions and turkey. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer on low for 10 minutes. You can add more water if it’s too thick. Top with a dallop of Soup Cream and a sprinkle of cheese.

P.S. Hula says hi! And a little peek at the entry way paint job.

  1. I think this is a perfect time to try out that recipe!

    I moved from the east coast to Colorado a few years ago, and I was disappointed to discover that there is no autumn here. There are, however, five different seasons:

    Spring
    Summer
    The Beginning of Winter
    Is It Still Winter?
    and
    OMG, Won’t Winter Ever End?

    I discovered exactly WHY bears hibernate!
