Liz’s Kitchen: Aunt Monique’s Chili Recipe
I'm back! After a break over the holidays and then a little more I am back and bursting with new recipes to try! Some of you may know that I have been doing the #Whole30 for a couple months! This is basically a body restart where you eliminate sugar, grains, legumes and dairy for you diet. It sound more extreme than it is but I have felt great and have drop a lit of weight. Someone suggested ot me on Facebook that I should share some of the recipes on Liz's Kitchen and I thought that was a great idea. The food that I'll share is really good! It's not diet food, it's healthy and hearty food!
The first recipe I'm going to share is something that my Aunt adapted for the Whole30 (yes, my family does a lot together). This chili is delicious and really easy to make. I hope you enjoy!
Aunt Monique's Chili
- 1lb Turkey
- 1 large onion, diced
- 2 large carrots, diced
- 1 large red, yellow or red bell pepper, diced
- 1 28oz can of Tomato Sauce
- 1 28oz can Crushed Tomatoes
- Salt, Pepper to taste
- Garlic Powder
- Chili Powder
Take your diced veggies and sauté them in a pan (I used a dutch oven). Cook them down for at least 10 minutes.
Then push them to the side and add your turkey. Cook the turkey down till all the water is gone, this could take awhile. Season the veggies and turkey with salt and pepper too.
Once it’s cooked down add the crushed tomatoes and tomato sauce. Rinse the can with a little water to get all the sauce out. Bring to boil then season with all spices (just eyeball).
Then lower the heat to low and let chill for like 45 minutes. Season again (probably won't need salt) to your tastes and spice level and let sit again. Cook for about 2 hours total and it’s really good the next day...it thicken it a little.
It has about 6 servings with a little over a cup for each serving! I really hope you enjoy it!
