"What's a sexy food... Turkey chili, that's sexy"
...loosely remembered from Leslie Knope.
Parks and Recreation is back! I love that Amy Poehler. And, I love Community. I mean, Theo 'my dad gave it to me' Huxtable as Shirley's husband and Abed's charting of when to have chocolate on hand...How can a person not?
Yeay, Thursday night tv. For a cozy evening in, why not make 'Throw it On In' chili. Basically, I decided that there are foods one can make that don't really need a recipe, and chili is one of them. But if you want to know how I made mine, and it's sweet that you do, try this:
Serve with some plain yogurt and shredded cheese, and an Anchor Steam.
Throw it On In Chili:
Heat enough oil to cover bottom of stock pot
Saute 1/2 of large yellow onion (diced)
Brown ground chicken or turkey (1 pound)
Once browned, add 2 large cans of diced tomatoes and a few bay leaves
*Reserve clean cans for making can and string telephone, or recycle
Add diced, chopped or shredded carrots and zucchini (about 5 carrots and 2 zucchini)
Add three cans of rinsed beans (a pantry assortment)
While the veggies cook, season to taste with:
brown sugar, cinnamon, paprika, Worcester sauce, cayenne pepper, salt, tapatio, thyme, red pepper flakes
* This list is respective of amount added, first listed being highest percent of seasonings...
I know. That last direction would make me an awful cookbook writer. Enjoy your programs!
