tequila and lime turkey chili

Tequila and Lime Turkey Chili

OK everyone, put on your game hat and pull out the tequila ’cause it’s game time! What could possibly be better fare for the Super Bowl than this tequila and lime turkey chili? It’s hearty, it’s meaty, it’s easy, it’s boozy, and it is Deeelicious with a capital D (and some extra “e”s apparently).

I found an adaptation of this chili from America’s Test Kitchen a couple of months ago over on Pink Parsley and I was so enamored with it that I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the Slow Cooker Revolution, the cookbook that the recipe originates from. Based solely on this recipe (well, and my love of all things America’s Test Kitchen of course), we decided to get this book for my sister-in-law. If anyone could benefit from some slow cooker recipes, it’s the parent of a 3-year-old and a 3-month-old. But personally, I think everyone should have a slow cooker and this cookbook, so I was pretty psyched when we got a copy for Christmas as well.

It just seemed criminal not to. Yes, it really is that good. And now we’ve finally had some daylight to shoot some photos, and just in time for the big game! Continue reading

chicken a la veracruzana

Joseph is on this great kick where he’s trying all these slow cooker recipes from Rick Bayless’ Mexican Everyday.  It’s wonderful.  Slow cookers are great because you just throw stuff in the slow cooker and then several hours later you open it up and there’s your meal, hot and succulent, just waiting to be ladled and eaten up.  I think it would be great on a snowy day.  Just imagine going out to play in the snow and this spicy dish welcoming you home to a warm kitchen.
