I saw this recipe - a while back - in People Magazine and really wanted to try it. I always look forward to the recipes they highlight every week. The recipe actually comes from Leo Howard (A Disney star, but I am totally out of that realm anymore and don't know who he is). The day finally arrived and I put it in the crock pot this morning.
2 T. vegetable oil (I did not use)
1 lb. ground turkey (I used lean hamburger)
1 medium onion, chopped
1 15-oz. can black beans, undrained
1 15-oz. can pinto beans, undrained
1 15-oz can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 11-oz can whole kernel corn, undrained (I used shoe peg corn)
1 1-oz. package dry ranch dressing mix
1 1 1/4 oz. package taco seasoning
2 cloves garlic, crushed and minced (I added this to the recipe - you can't make chili without garlic, right?)
Directions: Brown hamburger, onion, and garlic over medium heat.
Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to medium, stirring occasionally until liquid thickens, about 20 minutes.
Crock Pot: Brown hamburger, onion, and garlic. Mix ingredients in crock pot.
Cook on low for one-half day.
Hope you enjoy it!
