161. Dinner and a Movie

Very very excited for this evening, a.k.a. date night with the boy. We're going to see the Banksy "documentary", Exit Through the Gift Shop:

It starts at 7:30, so that should leave enough time for a run this afternoon. I haven't had any sort of workout since John moved in last Thursday, and we've been cooking so much together that I mos-definitely need one. Last night's dinner consisted of turkey chili and beer bread (with the leftover beers to drink, of course).

Our recipe looked like this:
1 lb of ground turkey
Half a large white onion (chopped)
1 Serrano pepper (chopped, seeds removed)
1/2 a red bell pepper (chopped)

Sautée together until the turkey is browned.
Add about half an amber beer. (We used Moe's Tap Room No. 21 Amber)
2 cans of 3 bean mix (Kidney, Black and White Beans)
2 cans of diced tomatoes with jalapenos

Season to taste with the following:
Red pepper flakes
Seasoned salt
Fresh ground pepper
1-2 tablespoons Cocoa powder
2-3 tablespoons brown sugar
Chili paste
Garlic powder
A generous amount of chili powder

Let the chili stew on a low-medium heat for about 40 minutes to an hour (basically until the beer bread is done). For super simple beer bread recipe, click here. *I did find that I had to add a little extra beer to the dough. 1 didn't seem to be enough to get the right consistency.
