Turkey Chilli

When I have my heart set on something, I just have to make it no matter what.   One of my biggest cravings is chilli, there is just something about the smokey spices, the soft meat and the beans that just scream out 'EAT ME!'  Chilli for me is one of those meals that can brighten up my day if I eat an amazing version, or can do completely the opposite if I have a bad one.    More often than not, I try and make sure I have a can of kidney beans in the cupboards, on hand so that I can make chilli in some form when the craving hits - and this my friends is my latest recipe.   A lot of people have reservations about turkey, they find it too dry or too bland.  I totally disagree, not only is it a versatile meat, its often a lot cheaper than chicken so I tend to buy it and cooked well, can give you something fantastic. 

The turkey works so well in this recipe, as it takes on the flavours, the mince stays soft and if you are like me, a little while go a long long way!
