Growing up, Halloween always meant one thing – Chili! We weren’t allowed to head out for trick-or-treating until we had finished at least one bowl of chili. This has become quite a tradition in my family. No matter where I am, I always chili on Halloween.
Even though there are no more trick-or-treaters in her house, my Mom still makes “THE” Chili every Halloween. Like any other holiday, my Mom and I always talk on Halloween and the first thing we talk about is the chili. We have used the same recipes for years. This year, however, is going to be different. This year we are making our chili with Black-eyed Peas.
This change seems especially fitting this year. It was exactly one year ago I had the idea to sell Peas. And, nothing has been the same ever since. Even my chili.
I hope you enjoy this special recipe!
THE Black-eyed Pea Chili

1 pound ground turkey
