If you put meat in it, it's called Chili con Carne (Chili with meat). Which is in fact the name of the dish in the first place. ;)

 

If someone wants to get all high and mighty about origins, strict recipes, etc, then they'd better start adding in suet and leaving out the tomatoes too. Next thing you know someone is going to say ketchup doesn't belong on a hot dog. In which case I'll say, go back to Chicago. ;)

John, isn't this a Man Cave recipe that you have dusted off and tweaked?

This was a video I really enjoyed watching, John, especially anticipating the good natured debate after the "Anybody who is anybody.." comment.  Very funny, and a great hook to bring in other approaches and methods.

 

Personally, I think that anybody who is anybody knows that you must add 2 tablespoons of Mesquite Honey to the recipe. :)

 

Excellent, as always, John.  Fun, too.  :good: :good:

      I picked up 2 lb. of 98% fat free ground turkey breast the other day.  I made some more of the 4 bean Turkey Chili I made a month ago with it but this time it was virtually free of points. (Only 1 WW Purple point)
       
      I diced up all the onions and peppers, mixed up the spices. Here are most of the ingredients.

       

       
      1 ½ Tablespoons Olive Oil
      2 lb. Pounds 98/7 Lean Ground Turkey
      ½ Yellow Onion (Diced)
      ½ Red Onion (Diced)
      I Poblano Pepper (Diced)
      1 Red Bell Pepper (Diced)
      1 ½ Teaspoons Minced Garlic
      1 6 Oz. Can Diced Green Chiles
      1 15 Oz. Can Corn
      1 15 Oz. Can Crushed Tomatoes
      1 15 Oz. Can Tomato Sauce
      1 15 Oz. Can Chili Beans
      1 15 Oz. Can Black Beans
      1 15 Oz. Can Dark Red Kidney Beans
      1 15 Oz. Cannellini Beans
      1 15 Oz. Can Chicken Broth
      2 Tbsp. Chili Power
      1 Tsp. Cumin
      ½ Tsp. Crushed Red Pepper
      ½ Tsp. Chipotle Pepper Power
      ½ Tsp. Black Pepper
      ½ Tsp. White Pepper
      ½ Tsp. Salt
      ¼ Tsp. Cinnamon
       
      While I was prepping everything our new dog Lady came in to visit.

      I got out my enameled Dutch oven and placed the OO. I put it on the side burner of my Gasser.

      I put the Turkey in once it was heated up.

      I cooked it until just slightly brown.

      Next, I added the Poblano pepper, onions, Bell pepper and garlic. I covered this and cook it for 10 minutes stirring occasionally.

      Once the veggies had softened,

      I added in the spices and rest of the ingredients.

       

       

       

      and mixed everything together.

      I brought this to a boil and then covered. I turned the burner to low and let the chili simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

      Here it is after cooking.

      Here it is in a bowl, garnished with onion, cilantro, some lime and some Non-Fat Greek yogurt.

      This was delicious and only 1 point per serving. (A serving = 1 cup. This was a large bowl, so it was a double serving so 2 points) Eating like this makes me forget I'm losing weight.

      In my wonderings though the grocery store I happen to spy 1 lb. of ground turkey on sale for $.99 but it needed to be used or froze by the 10th. I wasn’t sure what I was going to make with it but since both my wife and I on doing the Weight Watcher’s thing, I decided to put it in my cart.  My first thought was to mix it into some pasta sauce I still had sitting in the pantry for meat sauce. I then pointed the pasta sauce and it was off the charts high, so I rethought what else I could make. My wife suggested Turkey Chili. I liked that idea so that’s what I went with. I searched the web for recipes and combined around 3 of them to come up with this one.  
       
      Here are most of the ingredients.

       

      1 ½ Tablespoons Olive Oil
      1 lb. Pounds 93/7 Lean Ground Turkey
      ½ Yellow Onion (Diced)
      ½ Red Onion (Diced)
      I Poblano Pepper (Diced)
      1 Red Bell Pepper (Diced)
      1 ½ Teaspoons Minced Garlic
      1 6 Oz. Can Diced Green Chiles
      1 15 Oz. Can Corn
      1 15 Oz. Can Crushed Tomatoes
      1 15 Oz. Can Tomato Sauce

      1 15 Oz. Can Dark Red Kidney Beans
      1 15 Oz. Cannellini Beans
      1 15 Oz. Can Chicken Broth

      1 Tsp. Cumin
      ½ Tsp. Crushed Red Pepper
      ½ Tsp. Chipotle Pepper Power
      ½ Tsp. Black Pepper
      ½ Tsp. White Pepper
      ½ Tsp. Salt
      ¼ Tsp. Cinnamon

      My wife and I have been cooped up in our house for 2 weeks so we decided to take a drive just to get out. We drove down to Downtown San Diego to see what things were like and found a virtual ghost town.  This video shows us driving up 5th in the Gaslamp District. Normally there would be thousands of people on the sidewalks and bumper to bumper traffic. Pretty surreal!

      So my work had a Chili Cookoff contest and I decided to join in on the “fun”. I put fun in parenthesis because I had to make the chili on Tuesday after work and didn’t get done until it was 9:00. I then had to wait until it cooled off enough to put it in the fridge. So I’m in bed at 10:15 and the alarm is set for 4:30. This so I can shower and get everything ready and make the drive up to the L.A. area on Wednesday. I made a White Chicken Chili called Chili Blanco. I used a recipe from All Things BBQ. (Here's a link to his video:  https://www.atbbq.com/thesauce/chili-blanco/)
       
      I tweaked the recipe a little. Here are the ingredients I used with my tweaks in red.
      ·         2 lb chicken, boneless breasts or thighs (I used 4 boneless breasts)
      ·         Carne Asada Seasoning (I used Fajita seasoning)
      ·         2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
      ·         1 large yellow onion, diced
      ·         3 Anaheim chiles, seeded, diced (I used 2 Anaheim and 1 Poblano)
      ·         1 jalapeno, seeded, diced
      ·         1 tbsp All Purpose Rub
      ·         1 tbsp ground cumin
      ·         1 tsp Mexican oregano
      ·         4 cloves garlic, minced
      ·         3 tbsp unsalted butter
      ·         1/4 cup flour
      ·         2 (15 oz) cans of great northern beans, drained, rinsed
      ·         1 quart unsalted chicken stock
      ·         1 cup heavy cream (I used Caciqui Crema Salvadorena)
      ·         8 oz cream cheese, cubed
      ·         1 bunch cilantro, minced
      ·         4 oz (1 cup) pepper jack cheese, grated
       
      Didn’t have time for a fully documented cook photo spread but here is what I did get. I had taken some chicken I had in the freezer and thawed it out. Assembled most of my spices (some I didn’t use) and the chicken.

      Sliced al the breast in half to increase the surface area

      and then sprinkled on the fajita seasoning.

      I grilled the chicken on my preheated Grill Grates I got from BPS.

      Brought then inside to cool

      while I started prepping the veggies and other ingredients.

      Onion and Poblano diced

      and now the Anaheim’s added.  

      I took all this out and placed it in my 9 Qt. Dutch oven to sauté. This is where I was pushing for time and quit taken all the pictures that slow down the cooking process. I did get one of the final results.

      I really liked the flavor and heat profile of it. It had some heat, but the heat was flavorful and not just hot. My wife also liked it but indicated it was just a little to hot. (She still ate it 2 days in a row) I didn’t win the cookoff but came in 3rd. This is a little different that what everyone was used to. The traditional chili’s won but I did get a lot of complements on it.

      In this video, you will find all of the information necessary to properly unbox and assemble your new Kamado Joe Classic III grill.  I didn't think to make a video for the first one, so thought I would share tips I picked up from doing it a second time around.
