Holy Cow...I Can Cook?

I started this food blog New Years 2010 to force myself to get in the kitchen and teach myself how to cook. Well it has been a year, and it turns out, cooking isn't so hard after all. I kept the promise I made to myself and cooked healthy yummy meals for my family all year. Once I just got in there, read the recipes, and experimented I found cooking is yet another form of artistic expression. Just like with my art, I let go of the fear of failure and found a new passion.

Turkey Chili

Who says chili has to take forever? This chili is super easy, and fast. As we head into fall, it is so nice to have a comforting warm bowl of chili on a cold night.

1 cup red onion (chopped)
1 poblano pepper (seeded and chopped)
1 tsp garlic (minced
1 1/4 pounds ground turkey
1 tbsp chili powder
2 tbsp tomato paste
2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 19oz can cannellini beans (rinsed and drained)
1 14.5oz can diced tomatoes (do not drain)
1 14oz can chicken broth
1/2 cup cilantro (chopped)

1. Heat dutch oven or large saucepan over medium heat. Add first 4 ingredients; cook for 6 min or until turkey is done. Stir turkey frequently to crumble. Add chili powder and next 8 ingredients (through broth); bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 10 min. Stir in cilantro.

*Serves about 6 one cup servings
