This dish is excellent – warm, a little spicy, rich, and delicious. With everyone in the northeast still blanketed in snow, what better dish to make than a filling chili? This dish is a great way to eat heartily if you’re trying to cut red meat out of your diet or looking for something lighter in calories but full of flavor. (especially if you top with cilantro and red onion for flavor, and avoid the cheese and sour cream)
Double (or triple) the recipe. The leftovers taste even better than the initial dish. I think it’s because the flavors have time to meld together in the fridge.
I kind of forgot about this chili and left it on the stove top too long so mine didn’t have a very liquidy texture. But it was still delicious!
Top with any combination of the following: sour cream, parsley, cilantro, green onions, cheddar or jack cheese, chopped red onions, crumbled tortilla chips, avocado, chopped tomatoes, sliced chiles, or a spoonful of salsa. It’s also excellent with some white rice mixed in.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Other bloggers out there are talking about stuffing or cranberry sauce or glazed carrots or roasting a whole turkey. I’m not an expert on any of those those things, but I would like to be somewhat topical with this post. So I started thinking about Thanksgiving and then it came to me — turkey burgers!
I am always in search of a good turkey burger. In my experience, most turkey burgers out there are bland and dry. To combat this, I like to buy dark meat ground turkey and mix seasonings right in to provide more flavor. Ground dark meat has more fat so it has more flavor and is less likely to dry out than white meat. You can also buy a white meat/dark meat mix. I don’t recommend the white meat only since it’s the driest and least flavorful. This is one of my favorite turkey burger recipes. It’s pretty simple and uses few ingredients, but they really shine and dress up a normally boring meal!
