This spicy hummus turkey chili is creamy, comforting and the perfect one-pot dinner for cold winter days.
After two weeks in Grenada and eating more fish in 15 days than I probably have in a year (seriously, they eat SO much fish. Even for breakfast…gag), I can’t tell you how delicious this pot of turkey chili tasted.
I accomplished two things yesterday: sleeping until noon (I have no idea why since Grenada was only one hour ahead, it’s not like I was six times zones away or something but it felt amazing) and cooking this.
This perfect pot of creamy, cheesy, hummus-y, turkey goodness without anything even remotely resembling fish in it.
I love white chili. Maybe even more so than the usual red one because of it’s creamy factor. The one thing I’m not a fan of though is the whole roux thing usually needed to get that creaminess. So I had a thought: why not use hummus instead of a traditional roux for a way simpler, less ingredients spread out over the kitchen counter kind of alternative?
It totally worked.
Sabra’s Supremely Spicy Hummus was the perfect addition to this spicy turkey chili. Between the jalapenos, red pepper flakes and the spicy hummus, this one packs a punch. Not overwhelmingly so, but definitely be ready for some heat with this recipe. Consider yourself warned, spice haters.
You guys know how I loathe football, but I gotta say, this is pretty much the ultimate football food. Speaking of which, Sabra is hosting an Ultimate Tailgating Sweepstakes for 2 tickets to the 2016 Pro Bowl in Hawaii. You can enter HERE. Heck, even I would watch a game of football if it meant a trip to Hawaii.
