Chili Stew

Chili Stew

We made this dish in class the other night. It’s a great dish when time is short. It is fast to make and still has plenty of flavor. It falls somewhere between a chili and a stew, so that is where the name came from. I like it because it can be made from so many ingredients I already have in my pantry/freezer. This is a fun dish to serve for Super Bowl Sunday!!

Can be served as is, or topped with cheese, sour cream or chopped onions.  Perfect dinner for a “chili” night.

Chili Stew

1 pound ground beef or turkey

1 medium onion, chopped

1 small sweet pepper, chopped

1 (15 ounce) can black beans

2 (16 ounce) cans kidney beans, rinsed and drained

2 c. corn, fresh, frozen or canned (drained)

1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes 

1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce

1 (4 ounce) can chopped green chilies

1 envelope taco seasoning

2 tablespoons chili powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

 In a Dutch oven or large saucepan, cook the meat, onion and pepper over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serves 4-5.

I have been using up stuff from my freezer and I came across a turkey thigh. I usually just roast it, but wanted to do something different. Been thinking comfort food lately so I went with turkey and dumplings- adapting a dish I would normally make with chicken. The end result was really wonderful.

Turkey with Herb Dumplings

1 turkey thigh

1 large onion, chopped

2 ribs celery, chopped

4 carrots, peeled and chopped

3 potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks

4 c. turkey stock

4 T. flour

salt and pepper to taste

1 c. baking mix- like Bisquick- I make my own

1/2 c. milk

2 T. chopped green onion

1 T. chopped parsley

1 t. dried basil

In Dutch oven or large pot brown turkey thigh. Add the vegetables and brown them, too, turning to prevent burning. Add stock, cover pot, and simmer until turkey is tender, about an hour. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Remove the turkey thigh and cut the meat off the bone. Return the turkey meat to the pot. Combine flour with some cold water or more stock until smooth. Add to the pot and stir well. Mixture will thicken. Meanwhile combine baking mix with milk and herbs. Drop dumpling batter by tablespoonfuls over the turkey mixture in pot. Reduce heat to low, cover pot and cook until dumplings are cooked, about 20 minutes. To serve place some of the turkey and vegetables with sauce in serving bowls and top with dumplings. Serves 6.
