Are You Ready For Some Football?

Football season is BIG here in our house. We live for football Saturdays and NFL Sundays when we can eat yummy fall foods, lounge in our team gear and toss the football around in the yard with the kids. For me, not only do I love watching football, I just love the excuse to whip up a big pot of chili. So whether you root for Blue (like our house) or for Green — and we all root for the Lions —you can enjoy this (shhh, healthy) chili recipe. 
Kim’s Super Easy Turkey Chili
1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
1 pound ground turkey sausage-mild
1 onion, chopped
1 cups water
1 (28 ounce) can canned crushed tomatoes
1 (16 ounce) can canned kidney beans rinsed & drained
1 (16 ounce) can canned black beans rinsed & drained
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
2 tablespoons chili powder
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
*I also play with it and have added carrots, corn, celery, etc., depending on my mood.

  1. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Place turkey in the pot, and cook until evenly brown. Stir in onion, and cook until tender.
  2. Pour water into the pot. Mix in tomatoes, kidney beans, black beans and garlic. Season chili powder, paprika, oregano, cayenne pepper, cumin, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 30 minutes.
  3. Top with your favorite chili toppings: cheese, jalepenos, hot sauce, hot dogs, or corn chips!
What are some of your football favorites?
