Football Season Chili

Tis the season of rabid football fans everywhere. We have several who frequent our home during the sport. I cook this up, leaving to visit my friends who aren't so rabid, letting the " boys " talk, scream, cheer and boo to their hearts content. They lick their bowls clean, then when I come home I rewash their messes. I also put out a supply of tortilla chips and regular flour tortillas for the dippers and chili burrito makers that gather. An eclectic group my DH hosts throughout the season. Please adjust any seasonings / amounts to your taste. FYI, the cottage cheese is set out for the one's who like the spicy, hot, cold combo.

I made this last night for dinner ato help fight the cold weather here in the northeast. This was easy to make and very tasty. It hit the spot.

This is so good, that I have premixed the dry ingredients and stocked up on the can items. This is my second time making it in two weeks (football guests scraped the crockpot). I added another can of tomatoes last week and this week I an adding 3 cups of water to make more sauce. I think you can't fail with this recipe and if you use a crockpot, you can forget about it until game time. Best chili I ever made or tasted. I am making cornbread today also. Yum, yum. Edit: Do not use 3 cups of water; it dilutes the taste.

Outstanding chili and very easy to prepare. I only used 1 pound of ground turkey and 1 onion because that's all I had I increased the beans to 2 cans. My DH and I both thought it was great. Served with reduced-fat Mexican 4 cheeses and light sour cream. We used corn tortillas to "dip." This goes into our winter favorites. Thanks peachez for posting.
