Finally, we are at the last of the turkey left-overs. I did make this a few weeks ago, and I am already missing it, I loved this recipe so much! I stole it from Mel, a variation on her vegan chili.

What you'll need:
-Can of red beans
-Can of black beans
-Olive oil
-2 sticks of celerly
-One carrot
-Can of chopped tomato
-Left-over turkey
-Salt & Pepper
-Red pepper flakes

Chop up the turkey and veggies and add the cans of beans and tomatoes to bowl. Mix together and add the oil and the seasonings in. I ended up throwing it all in the crock-pot for four hours on high and then we snacked on it all week.

I made some corn muffins with some Jiffy mix and we even added some shredded cheese and it was great! I love comfort foods like this and I love crock-pots! Seriously, I bought this one from the Salvation Army last year for really cheap and it is the greatest thing ever. You just throw a bunch of food in it in the morning and by the time you get home from work, it's like someone was home cooking a meal for you. I know, cheesy but hey you can't beat that! I like to cook, but not if it takes more than a half-hour and meals like this are so great for this time of year. Don't forget to check out Mel's post for the vegan version.
