Best Crockpot Turkey Chili
Last week we were hit with a massive winter storm in NYC; flights were canceled, school was out (which is a good/bad thing depending on if the kids get a long), and two-inches of snow poured down every hour. Yes, two hours! Crazy right? It was gorgeous to look at– from my window.
Now, we can handle snow, we’re New Yorker’s we can handle anything, but this wasn’t any regular snow storm, it was brutally cold due to this extreme gusts of wind. Having kids- we see snow- we get geared up to go sledding, but unfortunately couldn’t do so. Instead we stayed in, played board games, watched Cars 3 and I started dinner at 11am. Yes, when it comes to those crock-pot recipes you need to start early so you’re not eating dinner at 8PM.
This is the best winter crockpot turkey chili, I saw WINTER because you don’t eat chili during the summer, I tried and it was not easy sweating while eating this delicious bowl of hotness. I’m an addict of Pinterest and when I’m not looking at “Farmhouse Decor” my other pass time is to look for dinner recipes. This one I’m about to share feeds a family of four and may leave enough for left overs the next day– all hoping you don’t go back for seconds!
– 1 Tbls cooking oil
– 2-2.5 pounds ground beef
– 1 large onion , finely chopped
– 4 cloves garlic , minced
– 1 cup chicken stock
– 1 (15 oz) can dark red kidney beans
– 1 (15 oz) can light red kidney beans or just do two dark red kidney beans
– 1 (28 oz) can tomato sauce (make sure to read the oz. on the can. I had to use two cans)
– 1 (28 oz) can crushed tomatoes
– 1/4 cup chili powder
– 1 Tbls ground cumin
– 2 tsp ground coriander
– 1 tsp salt
– 1/2 tsp black pepper
– 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1) In a large skillet heat oil over medium high heat. Add ground beef and onions. Cook until browned and onions are tender. Add garlic, and cook for 2 minutes. Drain any fat. Pour into crock pot.
2) Add all of the remaining ingredients to the crock pot. Stir well.
3) Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours, although 5 hours will do since that’s what we did.
