Recipes! Crockpot turkey chili & a brussels salad!

Hi guys! Happy Saturday!

In light of tomorrow being Super bowl Sunday, I decided to give you a few healthy recipes to help you fight the urge to splurge! You're welcome! ;)

So, I always hated brussels...until I tried this recipe. Now I can't get enough AND MY KIDS EVEN LIKE THEM!!

Start out with your brussels cut in half.

Dump them into a frying pan and drizzle with olive oil, honey, and pepper to taste. {I don't measure these out...just use your best judgement}

Cook on medium heat for about 15 minutes, or until they look like this:

Remove from heat and let them cool for  a few minutes. Once they are cooled, toss with some walnuts & dried cranberries and voila!

Now, serve and enjoy! That wasn't so hard was it?! {Spaghetti & meatballs not included ;) }

And now for the Turbo chili! I found the recipe in my Turbofire meal plan.

 Chili is one of my FAVORITE comfort foods. My mom makes the best, but this recipe comes pretty close. And the best part, it's SUPER EASY! I mean, you make it in your crock pot for crying out loud!

Here's what you need:

*1 lb. raw {lean} ground turkey
*1/2 onion, chopped
*2 cloves garlic, also chopped
*1/2 cup canned diced tomatoes, with juice
*1 1/2 cups whole-kernel corn
*1 can black beans
*1 can pinto beans {or chili, or kidney}
*1/2 cup tomato paste
*1tsp chili powder
*1/2 tsp cumin
*sea salt & pepper to taste

First, you're going to want to cook your turkey, garlic, and onion in a nonstick skillet over medium heat, stirring frequently, 4-5 minutes or until the turkey browns. Drain & discard the fat.

Then you're going to want to dump the turkey mixture into your crock pot-- followed by all other ingredients. That's right, just dump 'em on in. Stir to mix them together, then let it cook on low for about 4 hours. Ta da! Isn't that just the easiest?! It tastes good, too :)

This chili is so yummy topped with some plain greek yogurt, a little cheese, and some olives. Throw in a few tortilla chips, too!
