Homemade Chili

Between the cold weather and wanting to use the crock pot again I decided to make some homemade chili.  I looked at tons of recipes for the crock pot and none of them were exactly what I wanted so instead I just winged it.  I put everything I liked from the different recipes into this recipe.  No real measurements were used.  Jeff & I both tasted it a few times to see if anything else needed to be added.

All the ingredients added to the crock pot, pre-cooked.

The recipe calls for:

lean ground turkey meat
kidney & black beans
frozen corn
jalapeno peppers
garlic cloves
garlic powder
chili powder
cayenne pepper
salt & pepper 
tomato paste
tomato sauce
mini diced tomatoes
chicken broth
cheddar cheese (optional)
sour cream (optional)
tortilla chips (optional)
