Lisa's Chili

Today's recipe is one I whipped up for our first fall date on the bucket list, which I hope you are all participating in! Chili isn't difficult to make, so no matter what it will be delicious. But I was very happy with how this turned out and so was Chase. It was warm, spicy, and full of flavor. The perfect way to welcome this beautiful fall season. I didn't really measure anything, I just threw ingredients I had into my crock pot and it made my house smell delicious, my favorite. So here we go.


2 cans kidney beans
1 can black beans
2 cans tomato paste
1 can full of water (i used a bean can)
1 pound ground turkey
5 chopped tomatoes (golf ball sized)
1 large green bell pepper
1 medium-large onion
1/2 cup uncooked rice
1/2 cup cheese (colby/jack)
Dash of salt and pepper
Dash of red chili peppers
Dash of hot sauce (i like spicy)
Dash of garlic powder
Half a packet of taco seasoning


Turn on crock pot to high
Add cans of tomato paste and water, stir
Add kidney and black beans, stir
Chop up tomatoes, bell pepper, and onion, stir into crock pot
Add defrosted ground turkey evenly into pot
Stir in the uncooked rice
Mix in the cheese
Add salt, pepper, chili peppers, hot sauce, garlic powder, and taco seasoning
Mix well
Cover and let cook for 5-6 hours or until starts boiling, then change to low
Serve with taco chips and top with cheese

P.S. dont be afraid to eat this for leftovers. The flavor gets better the second and third day!
