March 22: Turkey Vegetable Chili Mac

I am finally caught up with my cooking and blogging, yay! I made this chili mac for dinner tonight. It's Friday night. Hubby likes comfort food on Fridays, and I was in luck because he really liked this. Praise the Lord! I put it in at about noon. Here are the ingredients:

I browned up a pound of ground turkey in a skillet:

I transferred the turkey to the crockpot, then added a can of drained and rinsed black beans, a can of Mexican diced tomatoes, a can of diced tomatoes, a cup of frozen corn, 1/2 chopped onion, 2 cloves of minced garlic, and a tsp of Mexican seasoning.

I let that cook on low for 5 hours, then I stirred in 1/2 cup of macaroni. It cooked for 10 minutes, I gave it a quick stir, then I cooked it for 20 minutes more.

I served it with a dollop of sour cream:

This chili mac was really good. The turkey has a great flavor. It was very balanced and filling. It could have used a little more seasoning though. That's probably because the recipe called for 1 tsp of Mexican seasoning. I couldn't find any of that, but I bought a package of taco seasoning. I should have probably used the whole packet. I have a feeling they're not the same thing.


  1. This looks and sounds yummy. I think I will try it next Sunday. I would try it tomorrow, but I have already shopped for this next week.
