Big Momma’s Turkey Chili

Looking for an easy way to feed your crew over the holidays?  Look no further! My mother’s famous and unbelievably easy Turkey Chili recipe is here.
1 lb ground turkey
3 cans corn (drained)
3 cans kidney beans (drained)
1 large can diced tomatoes (drained)
1 jar of Traditional Ragu (my mother insists that it must be Ragu!)
2 packets of Chili Powder
1 cup diced celery
Sauté the turkey until brown
Dump (yes, dump!) all ingredients into a slow cooker and heat.  
Serve with Fritos, shredded cheese and sour cream!
We typically make this in a slow cooker but you can do it in a dutch oven as well.  Just be sure to stir it often.

Oh, and by the way, if you are looking for the perfect holiday gift for friends, check out this monogrammed acrylic cookbook holder!  Pair it with your favorite cookbook, like James Farmer’s A Time to Cook or Jacqueline Cavender’s As the Spur Stirs, for a perfect present!
