Turkey Bacon Chili

Haillo everyone!!!!! I haven't posted in a dog's age, but here we go! So much has happened since the last post, I don't know where to begin. It's been almost a year and I'm engaged to a great fella and have a beautiful new baby girl named Lizzie!!! I luff her to pieces and she's just perfect. Here's a pic of my beauty and her momma!

Anyways, I have gained a bit of baby weight and it's time to get crack-a-lackin to take it off!!! We're avoiding grains, but rice will make the occasional appearance. Breakfast is the good ole green monster, lunch has been a Big Azz Salade (BAS) and dinner is a meat & vegetable. I'm going back to work next week and am making it easy on myself by making food on the weekend & bringing it to work. Today I just made turkey bacon chili, a creation of my own. :) Here we go!!

Turkey Bacon Chili
1lb ground turkey
1.5 pieces of bacon, chopped into bits
1 onion chopped
3 garlic cloves, chopped (couldn't find the garlic press!)
1 cup of carrots--just to add some more veggies into my life
2 cans of diced tomatoes
3 cans of beans (NOT PALEO)
1 can of pumpkin
2 mini cans of chopped green chilis
1 teaspoon of better than bouillion, beef flavor

Spices (not pictured)
salt & pepper
cumin, cinnamon, 21 seasoning salute from Trader Joe's, red cayenne pepper, onion powder, parsley & thyme

First off, here's my turkey

Canned goods
Carrots & onions
So fry up that bacon!!!

Add the onion and salt & pepper

Add the spices, turkey & bouillon

Add pumpkin & tomatoes

Rinse the beans, add them with the green chiles

Simmer everything together for an hour, you may add some water to thin things out a tad.

Finished!!!!! Very easy, we'll see how it tastes in about an hour!! Update to come!!
