The Consumption: 1st Place Firecracker Chili

First Things First:  I heart Texas Pete hot sauce!

This was my first attempt at making chili and I have to say I did an AMAZ job!  The ingredients were very easy to prep, simply browning the ground turkey and chopping all the fresh veggies into 1 inch think pieces (a tad larger than my previous attempts), I created a crunchy medley of flavors.
I cooked my chili for a little over 3 hours, giving it just enough time to fill my kitchen with the enticing smell of savory spices.

This chili was fantastic!!!  I would def enter this in a contest!  The melted shredded cheese and dollop of sour cream thickened the chili sauce, making it the perfect constancy.

Growing up, my other mom, Randi, would make a delish chili, layering Fritos in the bottom of our bowls, then topping with chili, shredded cheese and sour cream.  I decided to serve mine the same way!  Our friends, Kacey and Dave, said the Fritos created a Mexican-style pasta dish.  The chili coated and soaked these flavorful corn chips, making them easy to chew and fun to crunch!

I was definitely Crockin-N-Rollin!

I loved this recipe and I am very impressed with my creation!
