Food and Wine Black-Bean Turkey Chili
I have a hard time finding turkey recipes that my family will enjoy. My husband is a bacon and beef guy, with intermittent amounts of chicken and my sons could eat chicken all day and be content. So when I was flipping through the March issue of Food and Wine and saw a recipe for Black-Bean Turkey Chili, I was intrigued.
This recipe was a big hit in my house. My 2 year old ate his entire bowl and my husband actually heated up the leftovers and ate them the next day. I was only able to find one type of chili powder in my area, so I used 2 tablespoons of chili powder and a frozen, chopped chipotle chili in adobo sauce. The flavor turned out nice, with the right subtle undertones from the chili. I ground my own turkey, which I prefer to the pre-ground supermarket options, the texture is better. Finally, I added cilantro to the chili at the end, which brought out the flavor. This is a recipe that I would definitely use again, especially with the fact that it has 36gm of protein per serving.
