Use up holiday leftovers and make my easy and delicious thirty-minute turkey chili. This recipe can be made using ingredients you already have in your fridge and leftover turkey. My easy thirty-minute turkey chili tastes wonderful paired with toasted, buttered Dutch Crunch bread and is super delicious itself as leftovers the next day.
Christmas is next week! I repeat, Christmas is next week. Where did this year go? I’m stunned by how fast 2019 flew by. I’ll be taking next week off from the blog to spend with time with family but also to clean up the house. Over this year, our house has accumulated more stuff than I’m proud of and it’s time to let it go. The rooms that need a complete overhaul is my office where I spend most of my time and where I do all of my recipe shoots. My bedroom closet is a disaster. And when I say disaster, I mean disaster. My wardrobe desperately needs a good clean out and so does our garage. I also have a few DIY projects that I’ve been meaning to get done for…years. One of those is to paint our hallway. Yes, it’s the hallway you have seen behind me on IG stories that still has paint samples on it. Two years later.
THE EPIC PURGE BEFORE 2020
My other DIY project is to paint our back door. Our front door is painted and I think painting the back door will make our little farmhouse look even more farmhousy. I’m fully aware that farmhousey isn’t a word. The big project that I’m really hoping to tackle before we head into January is our garage. We started it last January but never finished it. Well, the last week of December is the week to finish that garage! I have some other small DIY projects I really to accomplish like hanging shelves in our bathroom, and making some new backdrops for the studio.
Do you guys have house projects you want to tackle before the New Year is here? I feel like it’s a house cleansing and I’d like to get rid of those old ghosts and head into the new year with a refreshed perspective and clean slate.
USE UP THAT LEFTOVER TURKEY
If you follow me on IG stories then you’ll see all of the behind the scenes purge over there. For now, let’s get back to this easy and delicious recipe. All you need for my thirty-minute turkey chili is leftover turkey, fresh veggies, beans, chicken stock, and marinara sauce. You’ll also need a Dutch Oven and a hungry belly. I like to pair my thirty-minute turkey chili with toasted, buttered Dutch Crunch bread and a heaping topping of sharp cheddar cheese. This brings this comfort meal up a notch. And in under thirty minutes, you’ll be well on your way to a delicious and satisfying meal that uses up those leftovers.
I have one more recipe going live here on Saturday and then I’m taking Christmas week off. I think a break is healthy from time to time, don’t you? I will be back with new recipes, some fun cocktails for New Year’s Eve and some healthy meals to bring you into 2020 healthy and happy.
If you make this recipe, let me know how much you love it!
