Cocoa Chili

Garnish with cheese and green onions

Time to bring back another slow-cooker dish! I can't help it. Making these types of dinner eases up the stress throughout the week and I can blame the slow-cooker when they aren't good! Right? Am I right? But seriously, there's something about leaving food to cook all day. It fills up the home with incredible aromas and just makes you feel good. And you really look forward to eating whatever it is that is cooking... at least my family does. Who doesn't love hearing compliments all day from everyone too?

We seem to all enjoy chili in this house too. It has something for everyone, especially this recipe. I made a point to include one ingredient that each of us likes. When you tell a child there's cocoa in their dinner, how in the world can't they try it?

What You Will Need:

1 lb ground turkey
3/4 can sweet corn with peppers, drained
1 (15 oz) can light red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 (28 oz) can fired roasted crushed tomatoes
2 tsp cocoa
1 T minced onion
1 tsp garlic salt
2 bay leaves
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp ground coriander
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1 1/2 C chicken broth
1 (6 oz) can tomato paste

1) Brown ground turkey.
2) Mix all ingredients in slow-cooker.
3) Cook on LOW for 5-6 hours.
4) Serve.
