Today I begin the WordPress PostADay challenge, which is pretty self-explanatory really, you try to make at least one post a day, every day. And for my first PostADay post, I give you the third installment of the Food Project, turkey chili.

Started with two medium onions, gathered from the hanging bunch in the basement that we grew last summer. Sauted with a little grapeseed oil until translucent. Add 1 1/2 to 2 pounds ground turkey and brown. Add salt and pepper, just a bit.


Next comes two packages of frozen tomatoes (also from last summer’s garden) and small package of frozen cut up green bell peppers (homegrown).


Spices are as follows: heaping teaspoons of oregano (grown and dried by my dad), ground cumin, and ground red pepper. Remove the seeds of three dried thai peppers and crush (also from dad’s crop two summers ago), and half a teaspoon of unsweetened cocoa powder.


Throw it all in the pot and cook for at least one hour (three is better), add two cans black beans, undrained bring back to heat and then serve over pasta with cheese on top… mmmm. no pictures of the last part, it was too yummy to stop and take a picture.
