I’m starting off the new year with another round of Taste&Create hosted by Nicole from For the Love of Food.  This month, Nicole paired me up with Chris and Lisa from We [heart] Food.  One look at Chris and Lisa’s blog and I knew I would have a hard time deciding which of their dishes to make myself.  They like some spicy food, and that’s right up my alley!

I finally decided to go with a recipe for turkey chili that they made in September.  I hadn’t had chili in forever, and I always equate it with football season.  I thought my husband would be pleased if I made him a little dinner-time tribute to the playoffs, especially seeing as how his team (the Chargers) is in the mix this year.  Never you mind that when you live in Australia, the American football games are on at five in the morning. 

Ground turkey, beans, and peppers simmered in tomatoes and lots of spices– this was perfect with a hunk of cornbread and a cold beer.  And it was easy to make, too.  I do admit that I forgot to buy the scallions for garnish…not that it is really a substitution, but I grated a little cheese on top instead.  Thanks Nicole, Chris and Lisa!
