It's Chili weather! Or is it? I dunno, around here the temperature swings from summer to winter and back on a weekly basis. Not that I'm complaining because I will gladly hold off on the full blown arrival of winter for as long as possible! Fortunately though, it was a decidedly chilly day out when I decided to try this chili recipe.
What do you think about trying out new recipes on guests? I can't seem to stop myself :) I made this for a brand new friend. As in the first time she ever came to my house! And I didn't warn her until after she had already arrived! I was nice though; I told her we could order pizza if it didn't work out. Most of my friends knew me before I started my blog, so I always figure they are fair game for my new food creations. In fact, I'm pretty sure they expect to be experminted on.
I have a habit of pinning things on Pinterest just based on the picture alone without checking out the recipe. This one had me at "turkey". Because I'm a convert, remember? The first time I looked at the recipe was when I decided to make it and I needed to put together my shopping list. It turns out that this is a Weight Watchers recipe. I'm all about healthy eating and I'm really on board when it tastes as good as this chili! It was even a hit with my dinner guests. My friend's 8 yr old son ate three bowls! Did I mention that our oldest son's are in the same class at school? And they have the same first name? And the same date of birth? As in the exact same month, day, and year?! I said those boys were destined to become friends!
This recipe is a keeper! Give it a try!!
