2009 Chili Cook off

Today we had a Chili Cookoff at work. My department was in charge of it and we had a lot of fun! Will post pics later, still need to upload them.

My contribution was a turkey chili recipe that was really easy, and I got a lot of compliments on. Basically, I browned a lb of ground turkey, and then threw it in the crockpot for 8 hours on low with half a diced onion, a can of lowfat tomato soup, 2 cans of rotel, a big can of kidney beans, a small can of black beans, and then some cumin, cayenne pepper, black pepper and garlic salt. It smelled SO GOOD!

Here are some pics!
