We understand what it’s like to have an abundance of leftovers the day after Thanksgiving. With the turkey, stuffing, and other sides, it’s almost like you can’t get away from the holiday no matter how hard you try! However, we have a secret to using those leftover turkey pieces and making it into Friday magic, or as we like to call it – Turkey Chili. Here’s the recipe for a great Thanksgiving leftover dish!
Friday Magic Turkey Chili
- 2 Tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1 white onion, diced
- 1 clove of garlic, minced
- ½ cup of chili powder
- 1 Tablespoon cumin
- 1 Tablespoon black pepper
- 1 Tablespoon salt
- 4 Cups leftover turkey
- 1 large can of crushed tomatoes
- 1 cup of water or chicken broth
- 1 can of light red kidney beans
- 1 can of dark red kidney beans
Start by heating a large sauce pot with your 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Once the oil is heated, add your white onion, and cook them until they are tender. Next, add your minced garlic to the pot until that is tender as well.
Next, add your chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper to the vegetables, and stir until they have made a paste. Adding your spices before your liquid will help to grab any extra flavor that the oil has left on the pot and ensure that it sticks throughout your chili. After you’ve added your spices, you can add in your can of crushed tomatoes, water or chicken broth, and beans. Let the mixture simmer for around an hour, partially covered, on low to medium heat. Enjoy over a bowl of leftover mashed potatoes or rice for a heartier meal!
