Black Bean Chili

There’s nothing like a delicious bowl of chili and cornbread. The best kind of chili is homemade chili of course, not the canned stuff. Here’s a great recipe that really hits the spot when you are craving good ol’ chili.

1 pound lean ground turkey (vegetarians and vegans can substitute another ingredients or simply omit)
1 red bell pepper
1 1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp dried chili flakes
1 8 ounce can tomato sauce
1/4 cup cilantro
1 cup chopped onion
2 cloves of garlic, minced
2 can of whole tomatoes, chopped and drained
2 cans of black beans, drained and rinsed
salt and pepper to taste

In a large stockpot, place onion, bell pepper, garlic and some stock (chicken or veggie). Cook until veggies are soft. Add the turkey and spices, cook for about 10 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients, bring to a boil. Once it’s boiling, reduce the heat and allow to simmer for 10 minutes. Stirring occasionally.

I served this is a bowl, over the top of some boiled turnips with some cornbread on the side. You can top with cheese and cilantro or parsley. Yum-o!
