Monday's Menu: Turkey Chili

It's no secret that I like recipes that are fast and easy. We all have busy lives with our families and businesses so the more time saved the better! That's the reason why I like this recipe so much!
Easy Turkey Chili

·         1 tbsp cooking oil
·         ½ medium onion, diced
·         2 cloves of garlic, diced
·         1 lb ground turkey
·         1 taco seasoning packet
·         12 oz Mexican lager style beer
·         1 14.5 oz can of whole tomatoes
·         1 14.5 oz can of red kidney beans

Garnish suggestions: sour cream, shredded sharp cheese, diced red onions, chopped green onions, fresh cilantro, diced avocado or crushed corn or tortilla chips.

In a large sauce pan heat oil, add onions and garlic until fragrant (about 3-4 minutes). Add turkey and cook until no longer pink breaking up the turkey as it cooks. Once cooked through add taco seasoning and coat turkey.

Add beer and simmer on medium-high until it is reduced by half, about 8-10 minutes. Add whole tomatoes with juice, crushing the tomatoes in your hand before putting into the pot. HINT: Crush the tomatoes slowly as they will explode if you do it too fast.

Add beans and bring to a boil. Simmer on medium for about 10 minutes uncovered to let the chili thicken. Serve with a garnish buffet so that your family can create their own unique style of chili!
