It's cold out there!! Seems like a good day for chili... Ironically enough, it was a blizzard much like this one, a few years ago, which gave my husband and I the inspiration to create what we think of as the PERFECT chili recipe! It is an amalgamation of a few different recipes and of course trial runs. We are very proud of it, and hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Ladies and gentlemen I give you, J&J Chili:

1 lb. ground turkey or lean ground beef
1 large onion chopped into large chunks
2 cloves of garlic chopped
1 28 0z can whole peeled tomatoes
1 green pepper chopped into large chunks
1 orange or yellow pepper chopped into large chunks
1 jalapeno chopped and seeded (or not depending on how hot you want it...
2C chicken or vegetable broth
1 small can of tomato sauce
2 tbs + chili powder (the + is for those of you like my husband who like it hot)
2tsp cumin
salt and pepper to taste
2 15 oz cans kidney beans

-brown meat.
-combine everything except kidney beans and cook over medium heat for 30 minutes (you may want to use a potato masher to crush up the whole tomatoes).
-add kidney beans and cook for 30 more minutes.
-serve in bowls with your favorite chili accompaniment... we are partial to corn muffins!
