I am not a big fan of leftovers.  Are you?
There are certain things I will eat the next day.  Some things I will eat the day after that too!
I made  a big pot of  Potato Soup on Tuesday and had it for lunch for 3 days in a row!  I am beginning to wonder if I am a bit crazy, or if it had something to do with the bacon that was on it!
I have been a bit busy the past few days preparing for A Crafter’s Dream Giveaway that will will begin at 12:01 a.m. Sunday, October 21, right here!
Since I have been busy, I decided to make a crock pot full of chili.  I wanted to try something a bit different from our standard, so I went on the hunt for some new and exciting recipes.
I used the basic Black Bean Sausage Chili from Taste of Home, recipe,  but also added a bit of Guy Fieri’s Dragon’s Breath Chili.
I really enjoyed this chili and not only did I eat it for dinner, I have already had it for lunch today!
Here is what I came up with!

Hot and Yummy Black Bean Chili
Serves 6 (ish)


1 pound ground Turkey
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 chopped onion
2 jalapeno, chopped
1 poblano pepper, chopped
1 bell pepper, chopped
1 can (15 oz) black beans (I do not rinse them – you can)
1 can (14 1/2 oz) diced tomatoes, undrained
1 cup frozen corn (may use canned)
1 Tablespoon Chili Powder
1 Teaspoon Hot Paprika
1 Teaspoon Cumin
1/2 Teaspoon Coriander
1/2 Teaspoon Cayenne Powder
1 Teaspoon Dried Oregano
3/4 Teaspoon Salt
1/4 Teaspoon pepper
Grated cheese (for Topping)
Sour Cream (For topping)


In a large saucepan, cook onion, garlic, and peppers until onion is translucent.  Add ground turkey and cook until turkey is done.

Transfer ground turkey mixture to a large crockpot and add all of the spices, the beans, the tomatoes and the corn.  Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours.

Top with grated cheese and/or sour cream, and enjoy!

    I quite like some types of leftovers. Curries, Spaghetti sauce and casseroles always taste better as leftovers.

    Leftovers are part of my main staple. It’s a food group, right? Some things are better leftover, and chili is one of them. Spaghetti is another.
