This is the chili my girlfriend Dian made for me about a year ago when I went to visit her. Well, it’s mostly that recipe! It’s absolutely delicious and a lower calorie version of beef chili. When I made it tonight, my kitchen refrigerator is still on a vacation at the appliance repair place, so I had to choose my ingredients carefully, because space is at a premium in my other refrigerator. We did get to visit the fridge this past weekend however!
Anyway, I decided to use ground turkey instead of chicken breasts. I just didn’t have the space to defrost chicken breasts. I thought about using some sliced up Chicken Feta Spinach Sausage I had, but maybe next time. And I used a can of tomatoes and green chilies instead of picante, because I only have a large container of picante and no space for it after I open it. In addition, I had some tomatoes that needed to be used, so they got chopped up and thrown in. My point is the recipe is a guideline, you can change it up every time you make it if you want. I suppose you could make it in the slow cooker, but it’s really pointless because it’s so quick to prepare.
