Karl’s Quick Turkey Chili

Jan is on a soft food diet—nothing where she has to bite with her front teeth—and I have spent the last two weeks thinking up interesting foods that she can still eat. She decided that chili with small bits  of vegetables and meat would fit the bill. Although I would prefer beef or pork chili, she has asked for ground turkey.

Karl’s Turkey Chili Powder

Jan is on a soft food diet—nothing where she needs to bite something off—and she decided that chili with small bits  of vegetables and meat would fit the bill. Although I would prefer beef or pork chili, she has asked for ground turkey. Turkey is a rather bland meat so I decided to spice it up with some chili powder.

Karl’s Weekend Beef Meatball Chili

I used canned beans for quick weekday chili. Cook’s Illustrated has identified Goya as the best brand of canned beans, because they are processed fresh in the fields, instead of laying around in storage for an unknown length of time. This is more of a weekend variation on the theme.

Karl’s Weekday Beef Chili

I like slow cooked chili with tender chunks of beef, sometimes I just want a quick meal for a weekday. While I have been known to simply use a brand name chili, occasionally I like to go just a step further. This may take a few more minutes than simply opening a can, but the flavor is worth the effort.

Karl’s Leftovers: Chili Dogs

When I make my Sunday meals, I usually make enough for one to three leftover meals. Sometimes this means just the same meal again. Other times I use whatever is left over as the basis for a new dish.

Karl’s Quick Beef Chili with Beans

Everyone has their own ideas about chili. A wide variety of dishes fall under the general heading of “chili.” Some think this dish should be only beef slow cooked in chili sauce. Others use a wide variety of meats—chicken, pork, turkey—in their chili. Still others say that it should include beans as well. Vegetarians get rid of the meat all together and still call it “chili.”

Claudia’s Chili

Before I left home for the first time, I sat down with my mother’s recipe box and wrote down my favorite dishes.  I had a hankering for chili this week end. I dug out my mother’s recipe and I was amazed to find that her “chili” did not actually include any chili! Continue reading

Karl’s Chili Barbecued Squash

Jan brought home a large squash from the university garden. I think I have identified it as a Ronde De Nice summer squash, a variety of zucchini. I decided to add it to my Labor Day barbecue.

Karl’s Chili California con Carne

Jan has a hankering for chili. She pointed out that I have not made it in a long time—looking at my posts, not since February of last year. For Jan, chili means “chili with beans.”
