This simple turkey wild rice chili is the perfect way to use up all that leftover Thanksgiving turkey. Full of spicy flavor and perfect when topped with crackers.
I have a bone to pick with Netflix.
In my last post I praised them for the fact they are getting Friends in January BUT really we are being robbed.
As I sit here in Grenada I’m watching Easy A. A movie (of course) not available on US Netflix.
They also have TONS of other new movies, Modern Family and they already have Friends.
What the heck Netflix?
I get the whole licensing agreement business but this Grenadian Netflix kicks ass. Get with it ‘Merica.
Even though I’m soaking up the sun (and watching Netflix and working) I was a little bummed I missed Thanksgiving.
I had made a Herbed Mayonnaise Roast Turkey a few weeks before so I had time to make this soup BUT there is nothing like a proper turkey on Thanksgiving.
Instead, I ate chicken and soursop ice cream.
Totally the same thing.
So even though it’s super hot I’m still craving this chili. It was packed full of flavor (hello smoked paprika!) and tastes great when topped with oyster crackers…or cheese…or Fritos…
You get the point. It’s great no matter what you put on it.
