I meant to make the usual red beans & ground turkey chili today. I went to
the cupboard last night and discovered I didn’t have kidney beans. I did
have a bag of limas. So, I tossed them in some water to soak over night.
Nada. Oh well. I was definitely not venturing in to town in this weather
just for an onion – especially when I had a good supply of garlic on hand. So I just threw the following together. And, I gotta say – it’s pretty
good! Ground Turkey & Lima Bean Chili 1 Bag Dry Baby Lima Beans – soak over night. Garlic – lots
1 Tray of ground turkey
Cayenne – whole peppers from the freezer – as much as you think you can
stand. Rinse soaked beans and put in crock pot with: 2 cans chicken broth Sauté ground turkey until nearly dry. Toss in the garlic and cayenne.
Brown. Toss turkey, garlic and peppers into crock-pot. Simmer on High about 4 hours – *** Test lima beans to be sure they are soft. Add: One large can diced tomatoes. Simmer. As long as you can maintain your self control.
