Downturn Dish: Chili for Rainy Days

There’s nothing like drizzling rain to put me in the mood for chili–and nothing like the economy (even on days when the market is up) to inspire cheaper eating.   Today’s “downturn dish” comes from my sister–Alison.  She’s not a chef; but she is a very good home cook.  Enjoy!

Chipotle Turkey Chili  

1 can black beans (or use dried)
1 can corn
1 can chopped tomatoes
1 lb ground turkey
1 onion
1 TB chipotle peppers in adobo
4-6 ounces tomatillo sauce (or make your own)
olive oil

Add about 1 TB olive oil to your chili pot, saute onions until nearly golden, add chopped turkey and cook until brown.  Add can of tomatoes, 1 chopped chipotle pepper plus 1TB of adobo sauce and cook another couple of minutes.  Add beans, corn, 4-6 ounces of tomatillo sauce, salt and pepper to taste.  Cook until flavors meld.
