Celebrate Today with Confetti Chili

Confetti Chili with Eggplant

Confetti Chili with Eggplant

This twist on a traditional chili recipe came about because of what I had in the refrigerator and freezer. In the summer, I always boil extra ears of corn and cut and freeze the kernels. I also had a small, lonely eggplant waiting to be transformed into something special.

CONFETTI CHILI

Meat:
1 lb. ground turkey or beef, fried

Vegetables:
1 small eggplant, cubed
1/2 onion, diced
1/2 red pepper, diced
1/2 green pepper, diced
1 15-oz. can black beans, drained
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 cup corn

Spices:
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tsp chili flakes
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground pepper
1 tsp Kosher salt
couple shakes Tabasco sauce
squirt of cilantro paste

Mix all ingredients in a crock pot and cook 5-6 hours on high or 8 hours on low.

Serve with shredded cheese, avocado, and corn bread.
