Sriracha Turkey Chili (Crockpot)

Who’s excited for the Patriots game this weekend? Ok you got me, not me. I’m not a football fan but everyone around me is. My husband is a huge New England Patriots fan. Footnall Sundays I cook and we have family and friends over and make a day of it. With this upcoming Sunday being the first Sunday of the season the Patriots play I’ll be making a batch of my Sriracha Turkey Chili.

I make this dish a lot during football season. My husband loves it and it’s really easy to make. I make it in my crockpot so all I have to do is brown the turkey, boil my corn, and chop up my veggies. Which brings me to another great thing about this recipe. It’s loaded with veggies like carrots, celery, bell peppers, and jalapeños. The kidney and black beans make this a complete nutritious meal the whole family can enjoy.

I developed this recipe years ago when I was looking for a meal I could make a big batch of for football Sunday. I used Sriracha because it was the only hot sauce I had in my fridge at the time. Everyone loved it and it became a hit. Since then, it’s not just for football Sunday but very often during the winter and it’s a must for our Super Bowl parties.

Since now we have a baby in the house I’ve had to change the way I make this recipe a bit so that she can enjoy it too. I always would throw all of the ingredients together in the crockpot and let all the flavors simmer together while cooking on low. Now I hold off on adding the jalapeños and Sriracha until the end. I cook everything ok high for 3-3.5 hours. I take out a good amount for the baby. Then I add the jalapeños and Sriracha and turn the crockpot to low and leave it for another hour. At first I thought this would alter the flavor but doesn’t. It’s still just as spicy and tasty.
