Step 1: Intro and Ingredients
Our local grocery store (WinnDixie) sells tubes of processed turkey for a dollar ($1us) a pound, its kind of strange with an odd consistency but for a buck a pound.... Here's a couple of ideas I came up with, actually a 2 for 1 recipe
Here's what you'll need
one pound package of processed turkey
one package of taco or chili seasoning
one or 2 cans of chopped tomato and chillies (I use rotel habenaro)
one medium onion chopped
2 chopped peppers
Hot Sauce(s) and red wine vinager
garlic (I use prechopped)
oil for frying
Total cost of about $3us not including the pantry/partial use items
Step 2: Lets Get Started
first lets get the pan warm and add some oil
Step 3: Sizzle
put the processed meat in the skillet, hear it sizzle!! use the spatula to break it up some
Step 4: Flavor and Veggies
Now throw in the chopped onion, peppers, garlic and packaged seasoning, stir and cook for a few minutes
Step 5: Tomatos and Chillies
open your can or 2 of tomatos and chillies dump in the pan, juice and all, add hot sauce of your preference, I use a couple good splashes of each of these (I like it HOT) then stir and heat
Step 6: Its CHILI !
oooops I made it a little 2 juicey at this point it would make a great chili but its going to need to thicken a LOT for taco or burritos, I raided the pantry and found a box of rice... that'll work!
Step 7: Fini
I let it simmer per the rice instructions when I tasted it, I decided to add a little more water and cooking time, it took about an hour all told
Step 8: ENJOY
Theres a couple of ways to enjoy this, put some in a bowl add a little cheese and eat like a thick chili or use it as a burrito/taco filling, I chose the burrito tonight
