Chipotle Spicy Chili

Louisville had its first snow this weekend and it was wonderful. I awoke Sunday to a little snow and a lot of happiness. I feel like everyone who hates snow just feels that way because they don’t have a dog like Hermie. Letting her out in the snow is so fun and adorable… she bounds through the snow, jumping instead of walking, and tries to catch snowflakes with her mouth. So cute, guys.

We did our normal routine of church, brunch, and then grocery shopping. By the time we left the last grocery store, the temperature had dropped dramatically. The perfect weather for something warm and spicy. Very spicy. This is my Chipotle Spicy Chili. While this is not the hottest chili I have ever had, it has a heck of a kick so be wary! Also quick, easy, budget friendly and, while a decent amount of calories, a lot of protein for those calories. The only thing is this has  a ton of sodium, so if that bothers you, avoid this!

Instructions

  1. Medium dice the onions and sauté them in olive oil for about 5 minutes in the large pan on medium heat. Mine is a 6-quart soup pan.FullSizeRender
  2. Add the turkey and sauté until the turkey is browned. This is about 7 minutes. If you need to drain the meat, do so after it is browned and then put the meat and onions back into the soup pan.
  3. Open and rise the 3 cans of beans. Add to the turkey.
  4. Add the spices and give it a good stir.
  5. Now add the bloody Mary mix, water, and roasted tomatoes.
  6. Leave on medium heat until it comes to a boil. Turn heat to low and allow to simmer for as long as you want or until you get hungry. I usually allow mine to simmer a couple of hours, just giving a stir occasionally to make sure it doesn’t burn.FullSizeRender (1)
