lynley’s quick chilli

quick chilli and cornbread

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!
