Yeahhhh…. so basically total procrastination over here.

In other news, I am really into making dinners lately. You almost certainly wouldn’t have the ability to note that judging from all of the baked products I toss at you, but I must say i love cooking an excellent meal for close friends and/or family.

Last week, We made this healthy turkey quinoa chili for Tony and his family. It’s loaded with protein, fiber and an unbelievable amount of flavor. On top of that this chili can be THICK! If you’d like you could use it being a chip dip, or put it over some nachos. I secretly want to make a little chili nacho bowl. Chips on the bottom, chili on the top, plus greek yogurt, avocado, cilantro, etc. SO good.

Another reason that I’m adoring this chili is that it makes great leftovers. If you ask me, I always think that chili likes better the very next day after the tastes have had a chance to sit down and meld collectively a bit.

Additionally you could probably make this up in your slow cooker if you want to serve it for video game day or at a celebration. You are doing your thing!

One last quick notice, this chili could be spicy if you’d like it to become – just insert more chipotle peppers (it is possible to usually see them in the Hispanic section at your local grocer). If you can’t still find it, several dashes of popular sauce would be delicious!

I hope you enjoy this meal. I served mine with my scrumptious Honey Pumpkin Cornbread Muffins
