I have tweaked it a bit so that it's a bit healthier - and so that I could rename it!! It is so freakin' good...
It's another one of those easy peasy - even your kids can do most of the work recipes (my girls are only 5 and 2!)
The ingredient list is a long one - but they are basics - you probably have all the ingredients in your house right now!!
Running UTE Tailgate Chili
1 1/2 lbs ground turkey
1 lb hot chicken sausage (italian style)
2 15 oz cans kidney beans, rinsed
2 15 oz cans black beans, rinsed
1 28 oz can diced tomatoes (with juice)
2 15 oz cans Rotel (mild with tomatoes and green chilies - with juice)
1 large yellow onion, diced
15 oz can tomato sauce
6 oz can tomato paste
4 oz can diced green chilis (or more if you'd like)
diced celery (as much as you'd like)
diced carrots (as much as you'd like)
4 cubes beef bouillon (or the equivelent)
1/4 c chili powder
1 T Worcestershire sauce
1 T minced garlic
1 T dried oregano
1 t dried basil
1 t salt
1 t pepper
1 t cayenne pepper
1 t paprika
3 t white sugar
In a large stock pot cook the ground turkey and the chicken sausage until evenly browned. Pour all of your canned items in. Add all seasonings and stir to blend. Cover and simmer over low het for at least 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
Top with sour cream and shredded cheese!
*If you want to crank up the heat, use Rotel with tomatoes and green chilis instead of diced tomatoes
