Chili. Chilly. They sound the same. Coincidence? I think not. What better time to enjoy a steamy, hearty bowl of chili than right now, when it’s wintery and cold. Chili in the summer? That just doesn’t make sense. If chili was a summer food, it would be called hottie, or something absurd like that. That would just be awkward. Good thing it is currently winter and you have at least until Groundhog Day to enjoy this. If there was actually snow on our mountains, I would love to end a full day of snowboarding with a bowl of this spicy goodness. As the snow is in a sad state, I’ll have to settle for ending a regular day with this bowl of spicy goodness. Delicious, nonetheless.
Now, before I get hate mail from chili purists, I’m just going to say that this is chili the way my family and I like it. It contains beans, which when confronted with chili, become a highly controversial legume. Some people are hard core anti-beans in chili. I don’t see why. They’re delicious and they add fiber and protein. Also, this chili is not exactly con carne. It’s con turquia (turkey). I’m a huge fan of ground turkey. It’s just as versatile as ground beef, and it’s a bit more health conscious. So if you’re open to new chili experiences, I know you’ll love this one, especially with a hunk of cornbread on the side.
