First Soup of the Year ! Turkey Chili

My goal for this year is to learn to make soup from scratch – three, easy right?!  Well here is number one, Chili in the crockpot.  I have made plenty of things in this machine but it’s been quite a while. I’ve lost the desire to cook, I stopped enjoying it, I got lazy …  So in an effort to get some cooking spark back I told myself (and the rest of my online world) that i am going to make soup!
What’s in the crockpot? 
  • Browned Ground Turkey
  • Can of Diced Tomatos with Onions and Peppers
  • Jar of Tomato Sauce with Onions, Peppers and Garlic
  • Frozen Onions
  • Paprika
  • Pepper & Salt

It simmered on high for about 3-4 hrs and low for 1.  The taste was ok, meat very tender… borderline a great meat sauce / chili – not really the best chili but pretty darn good meat sauce.   I started cooking spaghetti … My husband came home, tasted it – grabbed a taco seasoning packet stirred it in and TaDa – Chili !    LOL  ok so I am on my way ….   We added hot sauce. we all ate it, happily.  They enjoyed it with pasta, I had it by it’s self in a bowl. Quite nice and no leftovers!
