Tired of eating turkey sandwiches yet?
After the big meal of turkey on Thanksgiving Day, we are usually all stuck with a bunch of leftovers. One or two sandwiches later, and you wish you never had to see, let alone eat, turkey again for a very long time.
So, in order to avoid this feeling, and wasting any turkey that I worked hard to prepare, I decided to turn it into something else just as yummy. This Turkey Corn Chili really does the trick. We’ve been eating this chili on the day after Thanksgiving for almost our whole marriage and we love it!
Originally from Rachael Ray’s 30 Minute Meals, I switched up a few of the ingredients to make it more kid-friendly (i.e., less spicy), but you could certainly add back in a hot pepper, such as a jalapeno, or some cayenne pepper to suit your taste. It also is very fast to put together, which is very nice after a long day of cooking on Thanksgiving.
Turkey Corn Chili
Start off by sauteing onion, bell pepper and a bay left until softened.
Cut up some of your leftover turkey to add to the pot.
Pour in the rest of the ingredients, let it simmer, and you’re done! How easy is that?
I also love to use ground turkey to make this chili at other times of the year. It takes a few more minutes to cook the meat, but it tastes just as good, and is so warming on a cold winter day.
Your family will love this…give it a try! 🙂
