Snow Day Lunch
Today was pretty chilly here in Albuquerque and I did not have much in the fridge for lunch. It snowed this afternoon and I wanted something warm. I had a can of turkey chili from Trader Joe's so I decided to have that. If you shop at Trader Joe's much, you have probably been there when they are passing out samples of this chili. It's pretty tasty, especially for canned chili. It's a great thing to have stocked in your pantry for those days when you don't have time to cook or do not have much available to cook something from scratch.
Just empty the chili into a pot and heat over medium heat for about 5-10 minutes or until it's heated through. I like to add a little Tabasco to mine while heating it up to add some spice. It's pretty mild on it's own. One can will serve 1-2 people, depending on how hungry you are. Serve it with grated cheese, corn chips, and jalapenos.
Homemade chili will always be best, but this is a good alternative!
