{weekly eats: monday}

Hi guys!  Since a number of you were telling me how much you like these types of posts, I decided to switch it up a little bit this week and split it out into days.  Many of you have asked to see recipes for certain  posts, snack ideas and weekend meals so I thought this could be a good way to answer those questions!

Recipe for the Turkey & Veggie Chili:

Ingredients:

  • 1-2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium white onion
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 pound ground turkey breast
  • 1 medium red pepper, diced
  • 1 medium yellow pepper, diced
  • 1 medium orange pepper, diced
  • 1 tablespoon chipotle chili powder
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 2-4 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 (15 ounce) can kidney beans

Preparation:

  1. Heat a large saucepan over medium heat. Add first 4 ingredients; cook for 6 minutes or until turkey is done, stirring frequently to crumble. Stir in peppers, chili powder and next 7 ingredients (through broth); bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes. Stir in kidney beans and cilantro.
  2. Top with plain greek or skyr yogurt, hot sauce and avocado.
  3. Serve with corn chips.

TIP: Always look for ground turkey BREAST as this ensures that it’s the lean white meat chicken which is better for you.

DESSERT: A bowl of air-popped popcorn that I enjoyed while watching Friday Night Lights (I’m SO addicted!)
