It’s been a reeaalllly long time since I’ve been sick, so I guess it was bound to happen sooner or later. Especially since L just got over a bad cold. So I’m hunkered down with an awful sore throat, body aches, congestion, fever and chills that I haven’t been able to shake since Sunday afternoon. The only foods that sound remotely good to me right now are green juice, ice pops, tea and soup.
Actually, scratch that….there’s a fresh batch of Turkey Pumpkin Chili in the fridge right now, and it sounds pretty darn good! It’s a hearty, comforting mix of lean ground turkey, diced tomatoes & pumpkin, a warm blend of spices, and of course, black beans and kidney beans.
While I’d love to devour a warm bowl of chili (topped with some shredded cheddar and sour cream), my throat is way to sore and swollen for anything solid. How about you whip up a big batch of chili, and I’ll life vicariously through you?!
So, you might think that the ingredient list looks kinda long. Chili has a sneaky way of doing that. Don’t freak out and go running for the hills just yet….sit tight, let’s do this together.
Chili seems like a simple enough, straightforward meal – throw everything in a pot, heat it up and eat (spoiler alert….that’s the short version of the recipe) – but then you take a look at the ingredient list. And, this list looks like it’s a mile long.
So, you start thinking, long list = complicated recipe. Scratch that though, a-sap!!! Long-ish ingredient list, yes. Complicated, not at all! Worth carrying all those cans home from the grocery store, heck yes!
