Yesterday was a super lazy day. A day where I only got dressed (in sweatpants and an old shirt) because I had to go on an errand. A football and chili day.Taking stock of what was in the pantry, I realized I didn’t have everything that was needed for my usual chili. I was lacking ground beef, tomato juice, and a couple different kinds of beans. Pretty much all the ingredients for chili. Hmmm. I was already back from my errand, and going out again was not an option for me. I did realize I had quite a bit of frozen ground turkey, and a ton of great northern beans (white beans). That’s when it hit me – white chili. I had seen this recipe a while back, but I never got around to making it. It came out great.
Personally, I thought white chili was both easier to make and tastier. Extra points for it being healthier too (turkey instead of beef).I didn’t measure any of the spices, and just kept adding more until I liked the taste. I felt so lazy that I didn’t even make the jalapeno cornbread I intended as the side dish. Instead, I took out the rest of the Asiago bread from the farmer’s market that we had frozen. I put it in the oven for a few minutes, until it got a little toasted.
The bread went with the chili perfectly.It was a nice little Sunday.
