Ground turkey is not used that much to make chili or soup. However, since I am crazy, I do it a lot and therefore, decided to make two nice bowls of chili today. It must have been good, since my husband asked for second, smile! Hope you’ll like it.

Difficulty Level: X Easy ____ Intermediate ____ Advanced
½ lb. Ground turkey 99% lean, @ Trader Joe’s ($2.49)
1 tbsp. Adobo (.15)
1 tsp. paprika (.15)
1 tbsp. Parsley flakes (.15)
5 dry Shiitake mushrooms (broke into pieces) ($1.75)
1 c. Chicken stock (.65)
1 tbsp. olive oil (.30)
1 can great northern beans, drained and rinsed ($1.00)
Warm up the chicken stock and soak the broken mushroom pieces until hydrated.
Season the turkey with Adobo and paprika. Add olive oil to the cooking pan, sauté briefly, (the meat will still look a bit pink, it will cook completely later).
Add the rest of the ingredients, beans, parsley and hydrated mushrooms. The chicken stock should not cover the beans and turkey, unless you like it soupy. Cook in medium for about 5 to 7 minutes, until the broth is reduced. Serve garnished with avocado, more parsley or anything else you wish, like rice.
