Hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July weekend! We had a fun filled week with my family that was visiting from AZ. I think we’ve just about convinced them all to move on down to Newport Beach with us. It really was a great weekend. We watched the fireworks at the Newport Dunes and they put on quite the impressive show. I bet we’ll make it a tradition to go back there. Amidst all the entertaining, we also enjoyed this delicious and hearty, easy ground turkey chili recipe.
I am a huge chili fan, I think we make it at least once or twice a month. I was so excited to see that Costco now sells 1 lb packs of ground turkey just like their ground beef that I’ve been buying for years. I’ve always loved substituting turkey for beef, so maybe I’ll be trying it out more often now that it’s readily available at Costco. I love this easy turkey chili because it tastes as though it’s been simmering all day when you could actually have it on the table in about 20 minutes. It’s thick and full of great chili flavor.
Don’t forget to make these spicy cheddar cornbread muffins that I’ve made before. They are the best I’ve found. Enjoy!!
