    rileyk2's Note:

    Who doesn't love a bowl of hot chili on a cold fall day? My friend whipped this up in less than a half hour after a quick trip to the grocery story and I was AMAZED by how good it was. The most amazing part is that groceries themselves cost less than $10. Served best with a bit of shredded cheese and a dollop of sour cream and some corn tortilla rounds.

      I found this recipe tonight while looking for something new to do with ground beef. I used lean ground beef instead of turkey. I didn't have chili seasoning so I used Kittencal's recipe. I doubled the garlic and used garlic and herb flavoured tomato sauce and added a can of corn since the black beans made it a bit more southwestern. I found it was a bit watery so I added 4 tbsp of cornstarch to 4 tbsp water and then stirred it in and it thickened up nicely. We topped it with cheddar cheese and it was a big hit! Next time I will also top with sour cream but we didn't have any in the house. This recipe is definitely getting bookmarked! :)

      This is a wonderful chili! I used hot chili seasoning mix for extra kick. We loved the flavor and texture of the ground turkey and black beans. And it couldn't be easier to make! Thanks!
