A Couple of Tarts

We should look for someone to eat and drink with before looking for something to eat and drink, for dining alone is leading the life of a lion or wolf. ~ Epicurus

Hot Chili for a Cold Day

Now that it is finally cold in NYC, it's time for some hearty food to curl up with. RFC makes a kick-ass rendition of chili that is something to look forward to after negotiating the brown slush of the streets and the windy walk from the subway.

Three Bean Turkey Chili
2 large cans crushed tomatoes
package (usually about 1/3 pound) ground turkey
olive oil
2 medium onions, diced
3 -4 cloves of garlic, minced
envelope chili seasoning (taco seasoning could work also)
1 bottle of dark beer
hot sauce
1 can each navy beans, kidney beans and black beans (drained and rinsed)
red pepper, diced
salt and pepper

Brown turkey, but don't drain the fat. Set aside. In a large pot, saute garlic until tranluscent. Turn off the heat and add the onion and stir (with no heat). Add the tomatoes, beans, seasoning and beer. Bring to a boil and simmer for about an hour. After an hour, add the red pepper and hot sauce, salt and pepper to taste.

**I believe this recipe originally comes from two of RFC's friends, one out in SLC and one in LI, so shout outs to them.
