turkey chili

This week we hosted T's first sleepover - his friend C came to stay for one night. The kids were very excited and funny. It was fun to have a daughter for a wee moment in time but we'd have to buy lots of earplugs if we had 2 all the time. The volume was amazing!

C's mum and sister came over for dinner the other night and I made this turkey chili and it was a success so I'm passing the recipe along.

Turkey Chili
1 lb ground turkey

1 medium onion, diced
1 handful of baby carrots, diced
2 celery stalks, diced
2 roasted red peppers, diced (you can use raw)
1 c corn kernels
1 small can (398 mL) red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 can (540 mL) black beans, drained and rinsed
1 large can (796 mL) , whole tomatoes in juice, (I squished the tomatoes)
1 jar prepared pasta sauce
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp chilli powder
¼ tsp dry mustard powder

Add a bit of olive oil (1 tbsp) to a large sauté pan. Saute the turkey, breaking up as it browns. Add the onion, celery, carrots, pepper and stir. Cook for about 5 minutes and then add the corn and the beans. Stir and cook for 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes, sauce and seasonings and stir. Turn down the heat and let simmer for about 15 minutes. (This can simmer on low heat for a while if you want to make a bit ahead). Serve with grated cheese and sour cream.
