It’s winter time! Well, almost. So it’s time to post some good, cold weather recipes.

What do YOU like to have for dinner on a really frosty day? I like hot soups when it’s cold out (yes it gets cold in Florida), but chili is good any time of year. We even went to a neighborhood chili cookoff last rear and ate some GREAT chili! Turns out some of our neighbors – especially the Texas transplants – are pretty darned good chili cookers!

Here’s a simple, effective HOME MADE chili recipe you’ll love. Start with this, and add stuff as you go to make it your own.
Post your own chili recipe, or post about yours!

Dan and Michele’s Chili – Homemade, From Scratch
It’s awesome. About 3 hours start to finish

2 lbs of ground turkey (not ground turkey breast).
7 tablespoons of American Spice Company Chili Powder
No additional salt unless needed at the END
2 teaspoons Garlic powder
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon Paprika
8oz can of tomato sauce
16 oz water for bullion
1 teaspoon of chicken bullion
60g masa flour
14oz can of Mexican style chili beans
3 cups of water for slow cooking

I know, some people don’t like beans I chili. You can leave them out. If you like beany chili, add two cans. Anything close to kidney beans will do.

Use 2 lbs of ground turkey (not ground turkey breast) instead of the ground beef, fry in a big skillet, pour off grease and fry until some is brown and crispy. Break it into pieces, then

transfer to a large cooking pot with a thick bottom

Add the spices; stir to toast spices for a moment before continuing. Get the browned bits off the bottom with a wooden spoon

add the tomato sauce; stir

Add 16 oz water plus 1 teaspoon of chicken bullion; stir to mix

Mix the masa flour in a glass with 2/3 cup water and let set for about 5 minutes before adding to the chili; stir

Add 1 can of Mexican style chili beans; stir

Add 3 cups of water, bring chili to a boil, then simmer on double low for 2 hours uncovered; set a timer so you can stir it every 10 minutes for 30 minutes, then every 15 minutes for the remaining 90 minutes.
