What to do with all that turkey? You gave goodie bags away, but there seems to be so much left, still. Well, here are a couple great ideas beyond the old turkey-n-gravy sandwich, which isn't that bad either. My number one requested one-pot meal recipe is my White Turkey Chili. It's so easy to prepare; just give all the ingredients time to simmer; a spicy and a warm way to serve turkey.

Crock of Beer Chili

Rise early, fire up that cooktop + start chopping. Those flavors will come together deliciously for the weekend. This recipe has one bottle IPA beer, by all means use your favorite  micro-brew. I always advise, only use what you would drink!

This basic chili recipe combines several flavors of the Southwest.  Turkey and pork can be substituted for beef. Make it vegetarian by using eggplant, squash, and extra onion in place of the meat.
