Turkey Chili Mac

i recently discovered the goodness that is ground turkey. i’m reaaaaal weird about eating meat. (my family and close friends are currently nodding in agreement as they’re reading this). i like chicken and turkey and salami, and that’s about it. i’ll eat a steak if it’s put in front of me and i’ll eat ground beef if it’s slathered in marinara sauce or taco seasoning. and that’s about it. ANYWHO. i found this recipe on pinterest and wanted to amend it a bit to fit my preferences.

ingredients:
– 1 lb. ground turkey
– box of pasta (any kind you like — i did macaroni noodles)
– can of corn
– one red pepper, diced
– 12 oz. can of diced tomatoes
– 3 cloves garlic, minced
– 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
– 2 tablespoons olive oil
– can of white beans
– 1 tablespoon chili powder
– 1 tablespoon ground cumin
– a bit of dry Ranch seasoning from packet (1-2 teaspoons)

directions:
– cook pasta according to box directions, drain and set aside
– brown ground turkey in iron skillet, drain and set aside
– heat oil in iron skillet (or one large enough to hold all ingredients)
– add garlic and peppers and saute for 5-7 minutes
– add turkey, tomatoes, broth, corn, beans, pasta and seasonings
– mix well and let simmer for a few minutes

this stuff is divine. it’s boyfriend approved, too. enjoy!
