Last Week's Recipe of the Week: Turkey Barley Chili

We have one eater in our family who is particular about certain foods. Actually, I don't think it's the food, it may be the texture of the food. Anyhow, this is one recipe that my particular eater has requested and is enthusiastic to eat! For those with cholesterol issues - did you know that barley is better at lowering cholesterol than oat?

Turkey Barley Chili - modified from Quaker (Chicken Barley Chili)

Brown 20 oz ground, lean turkey in a large pot.

1 - 14.5 oz can diced tomato, undrained
1 - 16 oz can tomato sauce
1 - 14.5 oz chicken stock
1 1/2 c. pearled barley
4 c. water
1 T chili powder
1 tsp cumin

Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer 15 - 20 minutes.

1 - 15 oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 - 15 oz can whole kernel corn, undrained

Simmer until barley is tender and beans and corn are warmed through.

Bon Appetit!
