WCW ~ Sweet Corn Turkey Chili

Sweet Corn Turkey Chili

What's Cookin' Wednesday
~ Thursday Edition ~
This is a recipe I got from Shay's Blog - Her Post Here
I added a bit to it to create my own version...
The Mix & Match Mama's Picture
So I saw this on her blog recently from one of her meal planning posts...
My husband loves chili - I am not typically a fan because I don't love beans.
I also just recently became a fan of ground turkey... so this dish sparked my interest when Shay wrote that it could be made with beef OR turkey!

What you need:
1 pound of ground turkey
1 onion, chopped finely
1 jalapeno, seeded and diced
2 tablespoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1 tablespoon of Massa Meal
 1 (6 oz) can of tomato paste
1 (15 oz) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 (14 oz) can of creamed corn
1 (14 oz) can of petite diced tomatoes
  1 cup frozen corn
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper
Sour Cream and shredded cheddar cheese to garnish (if you'd like)

What You Do:

 In a large pot over medium-high heat, brown the ground turkey in a drizzle of olive oil.  
Add in a good pinch of salt & pepper.  
Once browned & crumbly, stir in the chopped onion and jalapeno.  
Sauté a few minutes then add another little pinch of Salt & Pepper.  
Stir in your chili powder, garlic powder, cumin and massa.
Stir well to incorporate.
Next, add the tomato paste, beans, creamed corn and tomatoes.
Reduce heat to low and simmer about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.  
Stir in the frozen corn and simmer another minute or two.
(I let this simmer on low for an hour)
Scoop out into a bowl and put a dollop of sour cream and some cheese on top!
 Here is how I threw mine together.....
