Cookalong: Healthy Tailgating with Turkey Chili

Click to RSVP for the cookalong
It's almost playoffs time. This is a great alternative to your normal tailgating food. This is a recipe that you can make beforehand or if you like to cook at your tailgate, you can make there.

Turkey is a superfood and tastes great with chili. The spices used here are more complex than your normal chili, but blend together to create a smooth heat.

Turkey Chili Recipe

This recipe was invented in New Jersey. I was looking for a way to get turkey in to my diet and I thought that a chili would be a great way to enjoy it.

The recipe and preparation is part of the video chat, but here is the recipe if you want to try it yourself.

Ingredients Preparation
1 tablespoon of olive oil 1. Heat the oil in a frying pan.
2 dashes Worcester Sauce 2. Soften the onions in the pan and then add the chili powder (to taste).
3 bay leaves 3. Add the chopped turkey bacon.
2 dashes Cholula 4. Brown the mince.
3 teaspoons chili powder (or to taste) 5. Add the tin of plum tomatoes.
1 teaspoon tomato paste 6. Add the kidney beans.
1 chili (chopped - only add if you like it hot) 7. Add the tomato paste, the Worcester sauce, Cholula, chili and bay leaves.
1 medium onion (finely chopped) 8. Simmer on a low heat until the flavors fuse together for about 30 to 40 minutes.
