  • Trot around your kitchen, chop a few veggies, open a few cans and enjoy fabulous turkey chili soup.
  • easy weeknight dinner
  • OK, this is way too easy to be so delicious! I know I usually do everything from scratch, but this is one of those short cut meals. And we all need that from time-to-time. I always start with a few fresh veggies – usually peppers and onions to bump up the vegetable content. I have also used small diced carrots and that’s a great addition too.
  • chili soup
  • Don’t stress about changing the meat from ground beef to turkey. No one every seems to guess.
  • And I like the textural difference of having both the Mrs. Grimes beans in chili sauce and the regular dark red kidney beans, so I add both. But you do as you like.
  • If you are making this for a large crowd, increase the meat to two pounds and add at least one more can of Mrs. Grime’s chili beans. Then adjust seasonings to taste.
  • garnish with cheese
  • chili soup
  • So if you’re looking for a great tasting chili, give this a try.
