Snowy winter days call for that steaming savory chili like momma used to make. Over the years I have tried and made multiple kinds of chili.

This recipe is a combination of several of my favorites carefully put together for that hearty, tasty, sweet heat that warms your tummy and almost makes you look forward to a snow day.

My family is torn between oyster crackers, saltine crackers, or Fritos. You pick, cause they all go good on top of this recipe.

Let’s make some chili!


  • 2 pounds ground Turkey
  • One yellow onion chopped
  • 2 TBS olive oil
  • 10 baby bella mushrooms (sliced)
  • 2 cans Ranch Style Beans
  • 1 14 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 1 6 oz can tomatoe sauce
  • 1 cup water
  • 2TBS chili powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 med chili guajillo peppers (no seeds)


  1. In Dutch oven or large saucepan heat olive oil. Add onions and cook until they begin to turn translucent.
  2. Add ground Turkey to onions and cook until browned.
  3. Chop up peppers. Be sure to remove seeds unless your looking for some extra zing.
  4. Add peppers and all remaining ingredients to your meat and onions. Reduce to low and simmer 1-2 hours. This will allow all of these spices to blend well.
  5. Serve with shredded cheddar cheese, crackers, or whatever your favorite chili topping is.
