Spicy Turkey Chili

Spicy Turkey Chili 1

It’s high time we had a new chili recipe on A Cookable Feast, and today we do: Spicy Turkey Chili is in the house, people!

It’s Halloween as I post this, a spooky day, indeed! Chili has become associated with Halloween here in the U.S., and for good reason: it’s warming and hearty, making it the perfect pre-trick-or-treating meal for kids and their parents heading out into their oft-chilly neighborhoods.

Soup weather is officially back! And to kick it off, I’m rolling out my Creamy Roasted Red Pepper Potato Soup with Chicken recipe with its rich flavors and delightful Southwestern flair. Holla, soup season!!!

Every year, the end of summer always bums me out at first, because I heart that fair season with its shimmering heat waves and long, sunlight-laden days.

Greek Bowls with Chicken and Spicy Roasted Red Pepper Feta Sauce

Greek Bowls with Chicken and Spicy Roasted Red Pepper Feta Sauce 1

I’m so, so excited by today’s recipe because it is inspired by a bomb meal I had this summer at KouZina, a restaurant here in the Detroit area. Say hello to Greek Bowls with Chicken and Spicy Roasted Red Pepper Feta Sauce!

I liken KouZina to a Greek Chipotle: you order at the counter, and one of the options is to create your own bowl. You select your rice (white or brown), your meat (chicken, gyro beef, or gyro lamb – or all three), your veggies, cheese, and sauce and plop down to eat the hell out of that glorious goodness! Visiting KouZina for the first time was a magical day for me (one that I highlighted on my other blog, 100 Places in the D).

After that day, as I was pleasantly haunted by the memory of how frickin’ delicious that meal was, I became intrigued with the idea of attempting to recreate the spicy feta sauce that my Greek bowl was doused with at Kouzina. For me it was the crowning jewel of the whole thing.

Hiya, all! Today I’m sharing this super-simple-to-assemble, six-ingredient Chicken Pita Wrap with Spinach, Red Bell Pepper, and Hummus. Because let’s face it: sometimes we really, really just want a sandwich . . . or a sandwich-esque item. Wraps are essentially rolled-up sandwiches, right?

White Bean Lemon Dill Dip

White Bean Lemon Dill Dip
In case you haven’t noticed yet, I love making dips! Specifically, I love making dips from beans; they’re just such a great base! They’re healthy and a great source of fiber and protein. And white beans, such as northern or cannellini or navy beans, are so mild that they are quite versatile in dip-making; you can pair them with so many different flavors.

Avocado and Bell Pepper Quinoa Salad
