The name says it all—you can get this cold-weather comfort food on the table in a flash!
1 (3 1/2-ounce) bag boil-in-bag long-grain rice
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 cup chopped onion
3/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
1/2 pound ground turkey breast
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 (15-ounce) can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 (14.5-ounce) can Mexican-style stewed tomatoes with jalapeño peppers and spices, undrained
1 (5.5-ounce) can tomato juice
1/4 cup (1 ounce) preshredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
How to Make It
Cook rice according to package directions, omitting salt and fat.
While rice cooks, heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, bell pepper, and turkey, and cook 3 minutes or until done, stirring to crumble. Stir in chili powder and the next 8 ingredients (chili powder through tomato juice); bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes. Serve over rice, and sprinkle with cheese.
It may not be Texas Chili but we love everything over rice in Hawaii! When my Mom was alive, she always served Chili over a bowl of leftover rice, Japanese sticky rice please....this recipe looks like comfort food for me!
Great dish but NOT from Texas! As fishstitch said, Texas chili has no beans - ever - and you never serve it on rice. Texas is home to the annual world finals chili cook-off, and as you may have guessed, Texans take their chili pretty seriously, much like other "countries" and their cuisines. :-D (Yes, I'm a native...) You may, however, serve chili on top of Fritos to make a Texas State Fair favorite - Frito Pie! Yum!
I cannot understand all the bean talk. I actually had an extra can of beans and added them and thought it tasted good. Probably would be good minus the beans as well. Served mine over pasta and thought it was good with plenty of kick for my wife and would need a little more spice to satisfy my daughter. Seemed the sauce part was a little thin and would not work by itself in a bowl. Was better than any package chili seasoning I ever tried.
I agree with some of the previous reviews about NO rice in chile. I personally don't like beans in my chile either, but a lot of people do. The only thing that goes in my chile is cheese and crumbled saltine crackers, both on the top!
I kick up the chili powder and usually skip the rice. I love this tuff, make this once every few weeks and the leftovers freeze beautifully. BTW, this tastes twice as good the day after, when the flavors have a chance to blend.
