    I like to make a huge pot of soup on Sundays... it's SO easy. We eat soup on Sunday nights and for lunch on Mondays. Then we have plenty of soup to heat up the rest of the week if I don't feel like cooking. Whatever soup is left on Friday, I just freeze. We do this will chili too. After a while you can skip a Sunday and just use your frozen cache of soups/chilis!

    Here's my recipe for "Tin Can Chili"

    2 pounds ground turkey
    2 Tbsp Olive oil
    1 large can diced tomato - do not drain
    1 large can of tomato sauce
    1 small can of tomato sauce
    1 large can of diced green chiles OR canned jalepenos if you like it HOT
    2 small cans of chili beans in sauce
    1 can cannelini (white kidney) beans, drained
    1 jar of Trader Joe's corn and chile, do not drain (sold with their salsa) OR a large can of sweet corn or Mexicorn, drained
    1 package Carroll Shelby chili Mix (usually stocked with the gravy/spice packets)

    Brown ground turkey w/med-high heat in a large stock pot until mostly cooked using the olive oil as needed to keep from turkey from sticking. When the turkey is cooked, add the all of the ingredients listed except for the Carroll Shelby Chili Mix.

    Stir to incorporate all of the ingredients.

    Open up the box of Carroll Shelby Chili Mix. Add the Salt and as much cayenne as you'd like (I use it all). Stir the pot. Then add the big bag of chili spices a little bit at a time, stirring between intervals to ensure that the spices don't clump. Set the bag of masa aside.

    Heat on medium heat until everything is heated throughout... about 20 minutes. I cook this for over an hour to let the flavors blend, but it's totally not necessary.

    When you're about done cooking, if the chili looks too thin (mine never does), you can add a little bit of the masa to thicken it up. Be sure to stir it well. After adding the masa, heat for another 10 minutes.

    This is totally doable in the crock pot too. Just brown the ground turkey on the stove, transfer it to the crock pot and then following the same directions... dump cans in, stir. Dump spices in and stir. Set on low heat for a minimum of two hours, but up to six. Do not use the high setting as it will burn.

    So easy and delicious! This recipe takes only 10 minutes longer to put together than it does to brown the ground meat.

    Serve w/diced onions, sour cream and/or cheese if you'd like.

    Feel free to adjust this recipe. It's easily adaptable. If you like garlic, add garlic. If you like mushrooms, add mushrooms. If you add tons of extra stuff and it seems too thick, just add some more tomato sauce. If it's not flavorful enough because you've added tons of extras, just add some chili powder... a tablespoon at a time, stirring and tasting until it's perfect :)
