Turkey Chili

We all try to find recipes for leftover turkey that our families will love. So, here's what I did with my turkey this time, or at least part of it anyway:

1 pound or so turkey
1 16oz can tomatoe sauce
1 can of diced tomatoes (these were flavored with garlic, oregano, basil)
1 can of white beans (drained)
1 can of kidney beans (drained)
3/4 cup onion (I sauted this with the turkey)
1 large rounded teaspoon of garlic (again, sauted with the turkey)
1 teaspoon basil
2 1/2 teaspoons of Chili powder
1/4 teaspoon of pepper
1/4 teaspoon of salt (I'm estimating here, it may have been less)

um...I think that's it. Anyway, I just put all of that in a pan after I sauted the onions a bit with the turkey and garlic. I let it come to a boil on medium for a few minutes and that's it. It was sooooo good!

Then we had some corn bread with it. To make that I use one box Jiffy corn mix and 1 box yellow cake mix, I follow the package directions for both and just combine them. You have to use a huge pan for this, but just stick it in the oven at about 350 for about 20-30 minutes depending on your oven.

Good dinner. :) I love turkey.
