My FAVORITE Clean Chili Recipe

It is FALL! My favorite time of the year. It means pumpkin things and blankets and I love it!

Tonight, because it is freezing outside, I am making my favorite Chili for dinner! I made it a couple months ago and took pictures to blog about and NEVER got around to it (happens a lot...) so I thought I would write this up today!

PLEASE excuse my iPhone pictures and lack of any sort of "food blogger photography" finesse. I am not a food photographer, so yeah...

Clean Chili Recipe

1 lb lean ground Turkey
4 bell peppers (I like yellow and red, but whatever works)
4 medium tomatoes
Cumin and Chili powder to taste

1. Preheat oven to 400
2.  Cut up your peppers and tomatoes into chunks (about quarters) and put on a pan.

3. Roast for 30 minutes or until soft and a little brown. I flip them over half way through. 

lol I didn't realize I got my feet in all these pictures. #photographerfail
4. Put roasted veggies in a blender and blend until lightly chunky.  (You want it to be liquid, but I like some chunks too.)

5. Put in a pot over medium high heat and let simmer. Start seasoning. I like cumin and a little chili powder. 

6. While that is doing its thing, brown your meat and season if you want to. If you like beans in your chili, you can add them to the pot now, but I don't like beans.

7. After its done its thing for as long as you want it to (no specified time, it doesn't become a unicorn after an hour, believe me, I have waited) Eat it :D

I guess I could have wiped the side first. #fail
I used to make chili using canned tomatoes and canned beans and canned blah blah blah and when I realized you can make it completely from vegetables, I won't go back. The chili is fresh and delicious and you know 100% what is in it. This is a fall staple recipe in my family.
