It is still in the 90's here, but I am pretending it is fall around these parts. I am using my pumpkin spice candle melts, making fall inspired treats, and drooling over any fall decor I see. This past week, I decided to fully commit to my pretending and make a warm cozy dinner for the family. We pretended it was chilly outside, watched a movie together, and enjoyed some chili and cornbread. It was delicious people! I always forget how yummy chili is. I don't make it all summer and then when the craving hits, I make it and am re-convinced that chili is my best friend. Oh boy is it yummy! Everyone loves it in our house too, which makes this mama very happy.
My turkey chili is super simple to make. You can use a chili seasoning packet or a homemade version. I also used dried beans that I had previously cooked in the pressure cooker and froze in 1 cup portions. It's a one pot dish, which means less dishes to clean (I always love that). I hope no matter your weather you can make a yummy pot of chili this week and enjoy some time with that family of yours:)
1 lb ground turkey
1 - 15 oz can of black beans, drained
1 - 15 oz can of kidney beans, drained

Brown ground turkey in a pot, with seasoning salt and onion. Next add tomatoes and chili seasoning. Stir to combine. Add beans. Allow to simmer for 15 minutes. Top with your favorite toppings and enjoy!
