I have been super into cooking lately and it’s all because of my crockpot (www.crock-pot.com) Cooking with my crock pot allows me to make meals without adding to the mom life stress pot. I’m truly addicted and about everything I’ve cooked has been in my crock pot for the last couple of weeks. The stove top rarely gets used in my house now a days because I realized how much time the crock pot saves me.
Something else I’ve been hooked on lately is Pinterest (www.pintrest.com). I’m sure we all know the magic of Pinterest and if not; wake up because your sleep! Nonetheless I have been on Pinterest like crazy pinning everything.
One of my favorite Pinterest Boards is my is “dinner Recipes” board. My family and I love to eat and I have been getting so much gratification from testing my very amateur culinary limits and my family commending me on how yummy it comes out. For The first time ever I used a Pinterest recipe to cook a meal for my family at home and it came out amazing.
This Crock pot turkey Chili recipe was found on Pinterest inspired by chili recipes from The House of Yumm (https://houseofyumm.com/crockpot-turkey-chili/) and The Spruce Eats (https://www.thespruceeats.com/easy-ground-beef-chili-3053290). I combined the recipes and revamped them a little to my taste and let me tell you all for my first time making homemade crock pot turkey chili my Mom; yes I said my mom even said it was almost perfect (recipe includes added modifications to make it perfect!).
Here is my rendition of the Turkey chili recipe and the links to the original recipes from the house of Yumm and The Spruce Eats are hyperlinked above!
Good luck, enjoy, and happy Crock pot turkey chili eats!!!
