Turkey Chili Coronado

Lauren Conforti


Another one my husband made up. (He's amazing!) This has a sweetness to it that compliments the turkey very well! You can change the amounts of the hot sauce, red pepper flakes or chili sauce to suit your heat preference. And don't let the list of ingredients intimidate you. It really is an easy recipe!
