Fantastic Chili Recipe!! the absolute best one I have tried.

I found this recipe online and just absolutely fell in love with it. This is one of the best Chili's ever!! With the addition of chocolate and chipotle chiles it really has a depth to it....just like the recipe claimed. I loved it and it came out amazing.


* Cooking spray
* 2 cups diced onion (about 1 large)
* 1 cup chopped red bell pepper
* 1 teaspoon minced garlic
* 1 1/4 pounds ground turkey breast
* 3 tablespoons brown sugar
* 2 tablespoons ancho chile powder
* 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa
* 1 teaspoon ground cumin
* 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 2 (15-ounce) cans pinto beans, rinsed and drained
* 2 (14.5-ounce) cans diced tomatoes, undrained
* 1 (14-ounce) can fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
* 2 chipotle chiles, canned in adobo sauce, minced
* 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
* 1/2 cup light sour cream
* Chopped green onions (optional)


Heat a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add onion, bell pepper, garlic, and turkey to pan; sauté 8 minutes or until turkey is browned and vegetables are tender. Add sugar and next 9 ingredients (through chipotle) to pan, stirring to blend; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 15 minutes or until slightly thickened, stirring occasionally. Add chocolate, stirring to melt. Ladle 1 1/4 cups chili in each of 8 bowls; top each serving with 1 tablespoon sour cream. Garnish with green onions.

    Easy Pumpkin Pie Recipe

    With Halloween around the corner and Fall upon us I thought a good pumpkin pie recipe would be appropriate. This one is quick, easy and delicious! Obviously if you want you can make your own crust, but I just tried the recipe with an already made crust.

    * 1 1/4 cups pumpkin puree, canned or fresh
    * 3/4 cup sugar
    * 1/2 teaspoon salt
    * 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
    * 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    * 1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
    * 2 eggs, lightly beaten
    * 1 cup evaporated milk, undiluted
    * 2 tablespoons water
    * 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    * 1 unbaked pastry shell (9-inch)

    Combine pumpkin, sugar, salt, spices, and flour in a medium mixing bowl. Add eggs; mix well. Add evaporated milk, water, and vanilla; mix well. Pour into pastry-lined pie pan. Bake at 400° for 15 minutes; reduce heat to 350° and bake about 35 minutes longer, or until center is set.
