Dynamite Turkey Chili and White Cornbread

Monica Keleher


I really love Chili, but my boys are not really that into it. I really had a craving for some today so I made one that is not too spicy but packed with flavor and as it was cooking I thought darn has to have a cornbread. So I made a white cornmeal cornbread, cause that's all I had in the pantry and it's so good too! Hope you like it as much as we did.
