A Hearty Lunch

Eating highly seasoned food is unhealthful, because it stimulates too much, provokes the appetite too much, and often is indigestible.
'Miss Beecher's Domestic Receipt-Book' (1846)

What did she know!

This is something of a cheater chili, as it takes about 30 minutes to make and it is a little warm!

1/2 lb ground turkey
1 small coarsely chopped onion
2-3 large cloves garlic chopped
Brown these together

1 small can of green chiles
1 can of black beans
1 can of diced tomatoes
a good shake of chipotle powder
salt to taste

Add to meat mixture and allow to simmer until thickened.
I serve it over a small amount of rice and with a good dollop of Daisy (light sour cream)


  1. Wow, I could go for a bowl of that right now! (And it's not even 8 am). Is it snowing there? We have about 2" on the ground.

  2. Mmm... that looks and sounds so good!

  3. Yes it's snowing and I'm depressed. It just makes an even bigger mess as it melts. I don't like to complain, but isn't enough, enough?

    This is good and the best thing is it's quick.


I really appreciate the concept and sentiment behind awards, but I cannot participate in them anymore. I have too may and I have not got the time to devote to participating properly. To all who have honored me, I am grateful but I don't have seven more things to tell anyone about myself! And I'm a terrible passer-oner.
