Leftover Turkey Chili
Tired of leftover turkey sandwiches? Smoky cumin and peppers will give a slow cooked flavor to this quick cooking chili. Original recipe from Sarah Lowe.
Make use of left over dinner rolls with these simple chips. Thinly slice dinner rolls, spray lightly with cooking spray, sprinkle with garlic powder and toast in a 500 degree oven for instant “chips” to dip in the chili.
If you would like a thicker chili mash half the beans with a potato masher before adding them to the chili. This will release their starch and help thicken the chili.
