After working hard on that Thanksgiving meal, why not make your life easy with leftovers? Throw that leftover turkey into the crockpot to make this slow cooker white turkey chili!
My blogger bff Rachel visited me this past weekend and we had a packed weekend with lots of eating, cooking, shopping, DC touristy-fun, and of course, Catching Fire watching! We ate our weight in cupcakes, too, on top of everything else. We bought half a dozen from Georgetown Cupcake one evening and tried all 6 flavors we bought and then the next day, we went to another cupcake bakery and bought four more other flavors to “compare.” Hey, it’s research ;)
Rachel has a great recap of our weekend and she linked up to all the Instagram photos she took of our adventures. You should go check it out (and she has a slow cooker recipe for turkey leftovers today too!).
Has anyone seen Catching Fire yet? What did you think about it? At first, I thought it was too long and it was dragging on, but then it got really good and I got more into it. I had forgotten some tidbits of the book and when it was played out on screen, it all came back to me. I was pleased with how they portrayed everything in the movie – I always have a picture in my head when I read books of how scenes are and when you finally see it in a movie, you can really see how someone else (the director) interpreted it. It’s so neat :)
So truth be told, usually by the end of Thanksgiving day, I get really sick of turkey because we’re constantly picking at it throughout the night and I don’t know, turkey just isn’t my favorite type of meat (I love ground turkey though, lol).
Anyway, so you’re probably wondering what to do with your leftover turkey. I’m here to help! Make some slow cooker white turkey chili :) you can do this with chicken thighs, too, for those other months that you don’t have a lifetime supply of turkey, but since you’ll have so much leftover turkey from Thanksgiving, you should throw some in a slow cooker and have a hearty, flavorful, and different meal! I loved how hearty this was and the depth of flavors in this! Definitely a nice break from all the Thanksgiving leftovers :)
