Recipe for Crockpot Black Bean Chili with Lime and Cilantro

I've have a very hard time choosing just one favorite chili recipe, but this is definitely on my list of faves. You can see all the recipes from the month by clicking Daily Phase One Recipes. Check after the recipe for Phase One Flashbacks from this day in 2012 and 2013.) One thing that can be frustrating about food blogging is that the greatest recipe in the world won't get much attention if the photo is bad, so I was happy to finally take new photos for this favorite slow cooker chili with lime and cilantro. The ultra flavorful chili includes a can of refried pinto beans as part of the base, which makes it extra thick, and I've been enjoying this the last few days with a dollop of low-fat sour cream on top. Start with two finely chopped onions which get sauteed in olive oil until they are nicely browned.

Turkey Lentil Stew

You’re thinking… ‘chicken… I thought you said TURKEY lentil stew… ?’. You’re correct! I glanced at all the roasted chickens and spotted some turkey breasts sitting toward the back of the shelf. For dinner tonight, I had originally planned to make a vegetable lentil stew, but now knew that I needed to try to incorporate some roasted turkey breast with the idea that I would use this recipe after Thanksgiving with the leftovers. I use bay leaves here, but if you don’t have any I think it would still taste fabulous.

Which is kind of crazy because when we met and were mar­ried he was a veg­e­tar­ian, he had been for 5 years until on our hon­ey­moon in Hawaii when he had a bite of fish. And even then he didn’t come home & dive into meat. But deep down lurk­ing beneath the sur­face was a meat eater. That doesn’t mean he still doesn’t enjoy a meat-less meal or that we don’t make meat-less meals as a reg­u­lar part of our life, the deli­ciously sim­ple dish of Mujadara or Spinach pie shows oth­er­wise.

How­ever, he does like a hearty beef stew with all it’s fine fix­ins.
