Craptastic Weather....Awesome Chili

I'll say it again, as I've said it in nearly every post this spring; the weather here just blows right now. I've never seen such a wet and windy spring in my life. It's terrible. It seems a portion of everyday is just wet and raw and terrible.

Saturday was no exception, it was windy and wet and all around blah! After spending the afternoon in the movie theatre watching X-Men 3 (which was worth the admission) CB asked for chili for dinner. Which surprised me, considering it is June, but since it feels more like March it seemed like an appropriate request.

Chili with Ground Chicken
1 can crushed tomatoes
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can red kidney beans
1 can black beans
1 onion chopped
1 green bell pepper chopped
3 ribs of celery chopped
1.5 pounds ground turkey
All to Taste; chilli powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper, oregano, parsley

In a large pot combine the cans of tomato, and beans, add seasoning to your liking. In a sauté pan, sauté the onion, celery, pepper and ground chicken with a little olive oil. When the chicken and vegetables are done, add to the tomato base, and let simmer for 30 minutes.

Serve with shredded cheddar cheese and tortilla chips.
