Dan's Turkey Chili

Dan's turkey chili is one of my all time favorite things to eat. The first time he made it, I was a little sceptical, but after 13 years it remains one of my favorites. He uses Six Gun Chili Mixin's as his base. It's a great mix because you can control the heat and the thickness. It comes with a packet of ground chili and a packet of Masa Harina along with the regular seasonings. Just follow the instructions on the package and you have a great pot of chili. Dan uses turkey instead of beef and it works well in this recipe. He also adds a can of drained and rinsed black beans for the bean part. The unusual part is the carrots and the mushrooms. He thickly slices 7 white button mushrooms and 3 carrots. The carrots are my favorite part, because they are kind of crunchy when the chili is done. I know it sounds strange, but it is so good!! Try it, you'll get hooked!!

There are carrots in the chili at McManus and I LOVE it. It's unexpected and yummy.

I think the sweetness of the carrots against the spicy chili is what gives it that unexpected surprise.
