Rancher’s Chili

November 1, 2012

Rancher’s Chili

This is an easy, throw-together comfort meal to be enjoyed on a cold winter night.  Using turkey makes it a healthy delicious meal.

(These pictures are shown using lean hamburger)

1 pound 97% fat free ground turkey or lean hamburger

season to taste – I used garlic granules, chili powder, season salt, pepper

Brown turkey or hamburger – season to taste.  Put in a crock pot or large pot.

2 (15 oz.) cans Ranch Style Beans

1  (14.5) can diced tomatoes, drained slightly (I used bottled tomatoes from our garden)

1 (15.5 oz.) jar chunky salsa (This is an approximate amount. Different brands of salsa are different oz. – doesn’t have to be exact.)

Add Ranch Style beans, tomatoes, and salsa.

8 oz. mushrooms or fresh – optional  (This is also an approximate.  We love mushrooms so we tend to add a lot to our recipes.)

Add chopped mushrooms, if wanted.

Mix all ingredients.  Cook on low for 4 – 6 hours.  Taste chili after an hour or so and season as necessary.
