Chili

Anyone care to share a chili recipe. I'm the type that can only cook on the barbecue. Gwen makes a good one from memory, and I want to surprise her and make a batch. It's that time of the year where I looooove chili. Not too spicy and no onions though as Molly gets some too. Yep its cold and rainy and windy . and I've got an attack. Right now I'm looking for my Baileys to warm the cockles of my heart.

This is my favorite chili recipe:

White Bean Turkey Chili

1+ pound ground turkey
1 pkg McCormick white chili spice packet (if you can't find you can substitute)
4 cans Great Northern Beans, drained (white)
2 T. ground cumin
1 7 oz can chopped green chilies
3 cups chicken broth ( I like swanson low sodium)

Cook Turkey, chopping with spatula as it cooks so it is in smaller crumbles, drain. Add spice packet with water as recommended and simmer until water evaporates. Put 2 cans of beans in pot with chicken broth. Puree with hand blender in pot. Add other beans, green chilies and cumin. Add turkey. Season with salt and pepper and chili spice or tabasco if you want it spicier. Simmer and serve with light sour cream, shredded cheese, French fried onions or diced green onions.

Not sure if you have a hand blender/pulverizer but you could always use a blender to puree the beans and then add them to the pot.

My favorite recipe is similar to the one above. Onion can be omitted, of course!


White Chicken Chili

3 Tbs olive oil
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 can (4oz) chopped green chiles, drained
3 Tbs all-purpose flour
2 tsp ground cumin
2 cans (16 oz) white beans (Navy, Great Northern, Cannellini)
1 can (14.5 oz) chicken broth
1 1/2 cups chopped cooked chicken breast

Optional:
Shredded monterey jack or cheddar cheese
Sour cream
Cilantro
Salsa

• In large skillet, cook onion in oil for 4 minutes or until transparent.
• Add chiles, flour and cumin; cook and stir for 2 minutes.
• Add beans and chicken broth; bring to a boil.
• Reduce heat; simmer for 10 minutes or until thickened.
• Add chicken; cook until hot.
• Garnish with cheese, sour cream, cilantro and salsa, if desired.

This a very forgiving recipe --- lots of room for variations --- and great for the crockpot. I usually throw in other spices such as salt, pepper, chili powder or paprika, and coriander. I may use cornstarch vs flour. If I’m in a hurry, I use pre-chopped onions, celery and green peppers as well as canned chicken. If I want it spicy, I throw in a can of diced jalepenos, or some slices from a jar or chop up a fresh one. I’ve also added some chopped chipolte in adobo if I want a smokey taste. I probably use more chicken and less beans than the recipe calls for and sometimes puree some of the beans for a thicker chili.

I can't give amounts... But pretty much just throw everything in! I make a many bean chili with either ground turkey or beef. That includes... Black beans, pinto beans, kindney Beans and chickpeas. I chop and sauté onion, garlic, carrots, and green peppers. Then I brown the meat in that mixture. Then I pretty much toss in the rinsed cans of bean, a or two can of diced tomatoes. I add either jalepenos or favorite salsa. Lots of chilli powder.... And the secret ingredients, especially if using turkey, is unsweetened cocoa it it helps add that dark rich look and flavor. I also add a bit of cinnamon. I make it pretty thick and chunky... Serve with chips, cheese, sour cream. On rice if you like.

Missy that sounds good too. Just wondering about the secret ingredient cocoa. That contains theobromine which rules out dogs. ?

I make a healthy turkey chili. I don't really have a strict recipe, but I cook some onion and garlic, add the ground turkey, then the spices (cumin, chili powder, coriander, celery salt, salt and pepper), the finely chopped carrot, celery, red and green peppers. For extra heat you can finely chop a jalapeno or serrano chili as well, add a large can of diced tomatos, beans (i like black beans but any kind will do). Cook in a large pot for about an hour, then taste and adjust the seasonings to your liking!

that sounds great too. Do your dogs get some? Gwen shakes her head at me when I tell her to leave out the onion. lol

No, there is onion and garlic in it (both toxic), plus the beans give them stinky gas. I try to minimize the human foods they get unless it is just veges or meat (without much seasoning). They did have some of my pork tenderloin tonight for dinner.

yeah I don't worry about a little garlic. I ve asked Sabine about garlic ,,, here's her reply

Garlic is a member of the allium family, but toxicity isn't as extreme as that of onions for example.

No specific safe or unsafe dose has been determined yet (e.g. unlike for chocolate), there's just not enough research available.

I have not yet personally heard of a single case where a moderate, reasonable amount of garlic has ever been an issue. Dr. Pitcairn even recommends using garlic in his book

I hear ya though, \Molly can eat just about anything with no problems , loves spaghetti .
