Joining me in the kitchen today is a very fun and special guest, Morgan Morris. Morgan is the 6-year-old son of WSMV's Chuck Morris. When I asked for Morgan's favorite food and what would he especially want to cook with me, he said, "Chili!" I will add that after the shoot, Morgan happily gobbled up a large serving of this chili, so it goes to show that kids definitely approve!
AIMEE FORTNEY'S EASY TURKEY CHILI (JUST IN TIME FOR FOOTBALL!)
Heat a large pot or soup pot over medium heat. Add olive oil, then cook the Italian sausage and ground turkey. Drain any excess fat and set the meat aside in a colander. Add the diced onion and cook for about 3 to 5 minutes, then add the garlic.
Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, then add the cooked meat back to the pot. Add the seasonings (using more or less to your taste). In a measuring bowl with a spout, add the crushed tomatoes, diced tomatoes and wine. Stir well, then add this mixture to the meat.
Next, add the beans and sweet potatoes. Stir well and cook on low for about 20 to 30 minutes, or the longer, the better. Serve with your favorite toppings such as diced avocado, grated cheese, Greek yogurt and pico de gallo.
