DAY 30

potluck (pŏt'lŭk') 1. (n.) Whatever may chance to be in the pot.

Tonight we had a chili cook-off and preparedness fair at our church. My mom and I made a "Southwest Chili"- it comes from the kitchen of Shawna LeSueur who got it from her friend Becky. I liked it so much I wanted to share.

Southwest Chili
1/2 lb ground turkey
1 diced onion
3-4 celery stalks, diced
1 green pepper, diced
1 can rotel (mild or medium)
2 cans stewed tomatoes, diced
1 can black beans
1 can pinto beans
1 can red kidney beans
sm pkg frozen white corn
1 pkg taco seasoning
1 pkg dry ranch dressing

Combine turkey, onion, celery, and pepper. Cook together until turkey is done. Add remaining ingredients and cook in pot for 2 hours or crockpot on high.
