Warm The Soul :: Chili
High of 71 degrees today, oh thank the lords! I am a giant grump in the heat and I am thrilled to have perfectly warm days and cool nights! One of my very favorite, if not absolute favorite, warm the belly comfort foods is easily chili!
My favorite way to eat it... get ready for this... oh and don't dismiss me as a crazy loon for it.... but I serve my chili over SPAGHETTI with a heaping pile of shredded cheddar on top!!! I saw one of those traveling shows on Food Network and this place did just chili and served it over pasta, my thought immediately was YUM! Maybe you're thinking, Yup this chick is off her rocker, but seriously don't knock it till ya try it! Just think of it as a whole new version of bolognese!
My chili is chock full of veggies and in this recipe I used ground turkey instead of beef, and trust me you won't miss it! This chili is super flavorful but very basic and so simple to make! Its got a good kick to it but not overly spicy... you can certainly add more cayenne if you want to kick up the heat.
