Foodie Corner – 2018 – Post #1 – Dump Chili

What do you include in your dump chili?

My two cents, but please share yours:

Since I like my chili mild, I mix the following in a microwave-safe bowl, heat until warm throughout, top with shredded cheddar cheese (a bunch) and broken tortilla chips, and nuke again until the cheese is nice and gooey.

  • 1-1.5 lbs. fully cooked ground turkey crumbles
  • 1 can precooked black beans, not drained
  • 1 can Rotel tomatoes, drained
  • 1 can diced tomatoes, not drained
  • 1 half-can tomato sauce
  • 1c diced celery and carrots
  • 4-6T chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1t garlic powder
  • 1t onion powder
  • 1-2t cumin powder
  • 1-2t coriander powder
  • 1c other diced veggies (optional, such as mushrooms or zucchini or peas)

Enjoy.
