Game Day Goodies

Here are a few of our favorite Game Day Goodies.

Wendy’s Turkey Chili

Wendy’s Turkey Chili
  • 1/2 large white onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon chili coffee spice*
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1.5 cups Rao’s Marinaria sauce**
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 1 can or box black beans or kidney beans
  • 3 cups kale, chopped (I used frozen)
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste

Sauté onion in olive oil on low heat for about 6 minutes. Add garlic and chili spice for another minute. Turn heat to medium, add turkey and cook through – about 15 minutes. Add sauce and stock and simmer for 20-30 minutes. Add kale and black beans to heat through. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve over brown rice if desired.

*The chili coffee spice I used is from World Market – full of flavor! You can use your favorite chili spices here.
** When I made this recipe, I didn’t have any boxed or canned tomatoes so I grabbed the only jar I had. Use what you already have in your pantry.

Debbie’s Turkey Chili

Dressed up Salsa

We love the quick simplicity of this recipe – grab your favorite salsa, a ripe avocado and go. We love leaving the avocado in chunks. NOTE: If you are serving on of the above chili recipes, we suggest leaving the beans out of this recipe…(wink…you are welcome!) Serve with your favorite crackers or chips.

  • 1 can or box cannellini beans or black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 ripe avocado, diced
  • Juice of a lemon or lime
  • 1 small jar of your favorite salsa

Blend the beans in a food processor or mash with a fork.
Add diced avocado.
Add the lemon or lime juice and mix together well.
Add the salsa.
Mix and serve.

Additional Notes: This tastes best at room temperature so if you make it ahead of time, let it sit out a couple hours before serving.  It keeps well for a couple of days.

Wendy’s Quick Fudge

  • 2 cups chocolate chips or bar of choice
  • 1 cup nut butter of choice
  • dash of salt

Melt chocolate in a double boiler. Mix in nut butter and salt. Pour into a parchment lined glass dish and freeze for 1 hour. Remove and cut into squares. Keep in the refrigerator until ready to serve. NOTE: My favorite combo is dark chocolate and almond butter.
