Shoutout to Mama Clark for forcing me to eat this when I was younger. YOU ARE THE REAL MVP.
This recipe has been in our family FOR YEARS, and I’m just getting around to sharing it. Truth be told, I probably would’ve forgotten about it if it weren’t for her bringing it up every time she saw an ounce of left over turkey from Thanksgiving 😉
As you may know, San Diego (and Southern California in general) is currently experiencing a heat wave that is never ending. Another shoutout goes to global warming- you can excuse yourself at anytime. With that being said, I’ve realized that… WE MIGHT ACTUALLY GET A WINTER THIS YEAR. WHAT IS THIS?!??!?!?!?! That’s why I’m so excited about this recipe- it screams “GIMMIE A BLANKET AND CHRISTMAS MOVIE STAT” (Basically me every Friday and Saturday night since October). And yes, I am one of those people that completely pushes Thanksgiving to the side and focuses on Christmas.
This recipe is also perfect for big gathering, as it makes A TON OF SERVINGS. My mom claims that it serves four-six, but we all know it’s more than that. I make this right after Thanksgiving, and am usually left with some until after Christmas. Freezing it is key though, as it keeps the turkey from spoiling.
The chili is also packed with protein from the beans and turkey, leaving you satisfied and full. However, if you just want it as a side dish, then you can do that as well, as a little will satisfy all your chili cravings! Enjoy.
