Turkey Chili

There is always that recipe that you are known for – the one your friends always ask you to bring over without fail. For my husband, it is his turkey chili – our game time favorite.

I must preface this by saying we love sports in our household. I wouldn’t consider myself a tom boy, but growing up, my father and I always watched football and basketball. And now, with the dawn of fantasty football, I cannot get enough (combining my competitive nature and love of football is a dangerous combination!). My husband, like most husbands, loves any and all sports. But, he has a special love for those associated with his hometown of Cleveland.

So, when the Browns are playing, you better believe we will be going to a get together – and you better believe my husband will be bringing his chili, the perfect football food.

My husband won’t let me blog this one without giving credit to the true recipe originator – his friend Greg Fisher.

Enjoy, and go Browns!
