listening to the splendid table podcast may not be the best thing to listen to when hiking. all i catch myself doing, as i work up an appetite, is what i would cook to impress lynn. after my hike the other day, in 18 degree weather, all i wanted was something that would warm me up. the solution my quick chilli. i also made some from scratch honey-whole wheat corn muffins and instead of just eating the muffins as a muffin, i cut it up and put it in the bottom of the bowl with the chilli on top. all i got to say is yummmmy!
1 lb ground turkey
1 large jar of salsa (i like mango or lime flavored personally)
1 can of chilli beans
1 can of diced tomatoes
plain low-fat yogurt or sour cream
* cook the turkey in a large saucepan. add the jar of salsa, can of chilli beans, and can of stewed tomatoes, mix well. bring chilli to a simmer and let simmer 15-20 minutes. top with a scoop of low-fat plain yogurt or sour cream, which ever you fancy!
