Welcome to roadfood Lady! Nice to have anouther chili cook here. Folks are picky about names for chili, and pizza, also. I learned that when someone brought up PBJ pizza. Thers a "Without it, it ain’t Real Chili" thread also, that expounds on the name thing. The newest wisdom here is that you can use whatever meat, and put whatever you want, in your chili. Your turkey habanero chili sounds great.
I made the habanero turkey chili and it was very tasty, though the hubby (a die-hard "Texas Red" chili maker)refused to acknowledge that it was chili and claimed the texture of the turkey "tasted funny". Other folks that ate it loved it and wanted the recipe.
We miss Justin Wilson, too… I was lucky enough to meet him at a book-signing once, and gave the autographed cookbook to hubby for Christmas that year.
Wow Joe, we need their recipe for the fantasy chili parlor!
I bow to your wisdom. I had a darn good bowl, acutally several bowls, of vegetarian chili last weekend. There is an organic produce market and vitamin store across the freeway from work that has a brunch everyday. They had vegetarian chili so I thought I would try it. I really did not miss the meat. If I was looking for meatless chili this would be it.
I once had a shrine for Justin at my house. A picture, a cut out from a box that contained some of the products sold w/ his name on them that said "I garontee", the empty bottles of the products, and some other stuff. My sweety made me dismantle it, shoot!
I am still hoping to try making some smoked turkey chili this season.
Justin is still on reruns on RFDTV
Cook turkey too long thou and it tastes like BUZZARD
I garontee Justin was my hero, and he is missed very much here.
Ahhhh, Justin Wilson, I sure miss him! Yep Joe, CK always posts some interesting recipes.
I have not tried the Wolf Brand turkey. I think someone said they liked it, in one of the canned chili threads here.
You’re probably right, I have had it out of a can, Wolf Brand, at a chili cookoff, and once in a restaurant.
The Wild Turkey Chili above sounds intresting though. Kinda like cooking along with Justin Wilson.
You have maybe not had any good turkey chili Joe. It can be good stuff. Like someone here said, any meat can work, and be good. Even a vegi chili can be good. You can’t think it’s gonna taste like red meat chili though. It’s a different kinda bird.
is like a ship without a wheel
A touch without a feel
I can’t believe it’s real…
The few times i have eaten eat it seams like all you taste is chili flavor from the spices. I had no meat flavor.
Sounds great to me CK! I like the mushrooms in there.
Habanero Turkey Chili
1 TBSP veggie oil
1 pound ground turkey
2 medium onions, diced
2 green bell peppers, diced
2 cups mushrooms, sliced
5 cloves garlic, crushed
1 (15oz) can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 (15oz) can chick peas, rinsed and drained
1 cup corn, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup medium bulgur wheat
1 (28oz) can diced tomatoes
1 cup chicken broth
2 TBSp worcestershire sauce
2 TBSP chili powder
1 tsp dried basil
2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp sugar
2 habanero chiles, stemmed and chopped
salt and fresh pepper
In a large skillet heat the oil, and then brown the ground turkey off
In a large slow cooker, combine meat with all other ingredients
Cook on low heat for 6-7 hours
It may not be a bowl of red but it is good eating none the less!
Green chile with sliced Thanksgiving leftovers sounds heavenly to me. Some kind of simple sauce, maybe with a few onions as well as the green chiles, added to some really good leftover turkey gravy, give the meat just long enough in there to warm it up… I’d eat that.
…Of course maybe that says more about me than it does about the idea.
