Yeahhhh…. so essentially total procrastination over here.

In additional news, I am really into making dinners lately. You almost certainly wouldn’t be able to see that judging from all of the baked items I toss at you, but I really love cooking a wonderful meal for friends and/or family.
Last week, I actually made this healthy turkey quinoa chili for Tony and his family. It’s loaded with proteins, fiber and an unbelievable amount of taste. On top of that this chili is certainly THICK! If you’d like you could use it being a chip dip, or put it over some nachos. I secretly want to make just a little chili nacho bowl. Chips on the bottom, chili on the top, plus greek yogurt, avocado, cilantro, etc. So excellent.
Another reason that I’m adoring this chili is that it makes great leftovers. To me, I always believe chili likes better the next day after the flavors have had an opportunity to sit and meld together a bit.
Additionally you could probably make this up in your slow cooker if you’d like to serve it for video game day time or at a party. You do your thing!
One last quick be aware, this chili can be spicy if you want it to become – just increase more chipotle peppers (you can usually see them in the Hispanic section at your local grocer). If you can’t think it is, several dashes of warm sauce would be delicious!
I hope you love this meal. I offered mine with my scrumptious Honey Pumpkin Cornbread Muffins
