Dinner For One… or more

While I was in college I was given a chili recipe that I have since altered a little and have shared with my family. It is an easy recipe to remember and a simple dish to prepare in a short amount of time. Though it doesn’t look that appealing, I have a number of witnesses who will tell you that it is yummy. The best part about this is if you are cooking for 1 or 2 you will have leftovers to freeze and if you are cooking for 4 it will serve everyone.


  • 1lb ground turkey
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 can of sweet corn
  • 1 can of black beans
  • 1 can of chunky crushed tomatoes
  • Chili Powder
  • Optional (sour cream and shredded cheddar cheese for toppings)


  1. Dice green pepper and onion and then sauté in a large pan
  2. Brown turkey meat in a skillet
  3. Add cooked turkey, drained corn and black beans to sautéed green pepper and onions
  4. Add chunky crushed tomatoes. Mix.
  5. Add chili powder (to your taste)
  6. Let simmer for 15-30mins on low heat
