turkey chili, I heart you.
I don't usually cook dinner for my whole family. It's not that I wouldn't love to- it's just because history reminds me that for the majority of time, my family believes that what I'm making is "weird" or something that they wouldn't like to try. (aside from my mom- she tries everything) SURPRISE! Everyone enjoyed my turkey chili recipe, even my dad! (Yay me!)
Lesson learned: Keep trying till they like it… lol

In sauce pan 2- Start by adding 1 tbsp of coconut oil. Next add your onion, carrot, celery, pepper, garlic, red kidney beans, and tomato into the saucepan on medium heat. Once the vegetable mixture begins to simmer, add the cumin seasoning and salt and pepper to taste.
