Inauguration Celebration- Obama Chili

If you’re looking for a fun way to commemorate the inauguration tomorrow and your local Wal-Mart is fresh out of these sandals, look no further!

Let’s kick off the next four years with some spice…. with The Obama Family Chili Recipe, to be exact.

Reportedly, Obama’s favorite thing to make is this chili and he provided the “how-to” himself on Good Morning America. Let’s see if his culinary skills are as promising as his political prowess.

1 large onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
Several cloves of garlic, chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound ground turkey
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground oregano
1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/4 teaspoon ground basil
1 tablespoon chili powder
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
Several tomatoes, depending on size, chopped
1 can red kidney beans

1.Saute onions, green pepper and garlic in olive oil until soft.
2.Add ground meat and brown.
3.Combine spices together into a mixture, then add to ground meat.
4. Add red wine vinegar.
5. Add tomatoes and let simmer, until tomatoes cook down.
6. Add kidney beans and cook for a few more minutes.
7. Serve over white or brown rice. Garnish with grated cheddar cheese, onions and sour cream.

I’ll be making this tomorrow night so check back to see if Obama gets my vote ( again!)
