Cincinnati Chili – Turkey Version


I have written before about how I love Cincinnati Chili.  I really do love it, the flavor just makes me very happy.

I previously shared a beef version made a little healthier by pairing it with spaghetti squash.

Tonight’s version used ground turkey. We didn’t miss the beef at all.
