This particular bowl of experimental food I have named Thanksgiving chilly. It consists of a turkey, pumpkin, and cranberry chili, topped with a random homemade stuffing. Turned out pretty tasty. Probably could have used some corn and mashed potatoes for the full thanksgiving dinner effect.
Since I never seem to measure anything when I make food, I shall compile this recipe with vague estimations.
- turkey - 1 or 2 pounds (ground, unless it's actually Thanksgiving leftovers)
- chili - a few tablespoons I'd guess (any type of ground chili will do, I usually throw in some other spices for fun. Of course there's always pre-packaged chili mixes("six gun chili" is quite good))
- tomatoes - 1 can, maybe 2 fresh, diced
- water or tomato juice - about 1 cup (needs some extra liquid for simmering and reducing)
- pumpkin - at least 1 cup (canned pumpkin is always around in huge cans, don't use the whole thing)
- cranberry sauce - 1/4 to 1/3 of the can (flavor wasn't very strong, I'd go with more if you like sweet. Also the kind with actual berries would be better than the can shaped jello kind I used)
- beans - 1 can any kind, drained and rinsed
- bread - 3 big slices or ends of something you weren't gonna eat before it got moldy anyway, cubed
- onion - just one probably, diced
- carrots - 2 small one, sliced thin
- red pepper - 1 diced (Because that's what I had, celery would be good too)
- olive oil - enough
- spices - throw on your favorite
