Angelica's Chili

YEARS ago, Angelica made this delicious chili and ALMOST won a competition at work.  And I say "almost" because the organizer of the competition thought awarding 1st place was not sufficient, but that she needed to rank the chilis from 1st to 13th place (poor J.J.)  

I think Angelica's second place chili was the tastiest and she was robbed.  

"I am passing along my CHILI recipe to share. I doubled the recipe and added ground chuck in addition to the turkey, also for a lighter broth you can use one can of chicken broth instead of 2 (1 each) cans of tomato sauce/paste. I used as a guide and personalized it. I put all the fixings on the side and made cornbread muffins, everything was a hit!  Hope you enjoy a bowl of homemade chili."

  • 1 pound ground turkey
