What I had around Chili

I love chili.  Toss a few cans of beans and whatever else you happen to have on hand into a slow cooker and 8 hours later you have a tasty, filling meal!


  • 1 can black beans + goo
  • 1 can kidney beans + goo
  • 1 stalk green garlic, minced (or two minced cloves of garlic)
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 can diced tomatoes + juice (or five fresh roma tomatoes)
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon jalapeno sauce
  • 1 teaspoon chili pepper sauce
  • 1 teaspoon seasoning blend of your choice
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 diced green bell pepper (this can be added right away, or put under the broiler until tender and added 15 minutes before eating)
  • 3/4 lbs ground turkey (optional)

What I did:

  • Throw it all into a 4 quart slow cooker
  • Cook on low for 8 hours
  • Allow to vent for 15 minutes
  • ENJOY!

I ate mine with a “healthy” helping of cheddar cheese, sour cream, and bagel chips.  M had his with soy cheese.  If I weren’t allergic to avocados, I would totally have chopped some up as a topping.

    That’s the best way to cook, just to throw a bunch of stuff together.
