Fired-up Chipotle Chili from Suburban Chef Barbie Hahn

It's "Chili" outside

By: Fox 19's Suburban Chef, Barbie Hahn


When the days turn cold, we run to our kitchens' for comfort. With new years resolutions still fresh in our minds we may think that the steaming hot bowl of chili is off limits. I am here to tell you that you can enjoy that bowl of chili without guilt with just one minor adjustment, ground turkey!  Ground turkey is up to 95% lean. Has the same mouth feel and texture as ground beef, without all the fat.  I recently came in third in the Findlay Market Chili Cookoff with my chili recipe.  I cooked it with beef for the contest, but always serve it with turkey to family and friends.  I hope you find this a welcome addition to your recipe box!
