It's the most wonderful time of the year! Postseason baseball and the start of football. As a die hard Yankees and Jets fan, I am in my glory...although being the early bird that I am, I wish some of these late night games could perhaps be mid afternoon games ;) Got a chance to go to the Jets game a couple of weeks ago against the Jaguars. Here's a picture from my iPhone of the view from our seats:
We had a blast! I think in general, though, there's really nothing better than parking my butt on the couch in front of the TV with friends, family, and food! I hosted football Sunday last week, and one recipe I stole from Rachael Ray was a big crowd pleaser. It's SUPER quick and easy, and I love when I can impress my mom with my cooking ;) So here you go, use it this weekend as you watch the ALDS, NLDS, Giants, or Jets!
Turkey Corn Chili
In a deep pot, saute one chopped up yellow onion in a little vegetable oil. Add a pound and a third of ground turkey meat and let brown. Toss in a can of diced tomatoes, one chopped red pepper, 1-2 chopped scallions (I left those out of mine), and 1 1/2 cup of frozen corn kernels. Add about a tablespoon and a half each of chili powder and ground cumin, and 1-2 ounces of hot sauce depending on how spicy you like it. Let simmer for about 10 minutes, then serve with some tortilla chips, shredded cheese, and sour cream for toppers.
Enjoy, and thanks again to Rachael Ray for making people think I can cook. Have fun this weekend, and GO YANKEES!
