It may be Spring, but in Colorado, that still means cold, windy and/or snowy days here and there.  And when that happens, I am in the mood for something to warm me up, so how about some chili?  Thai Turkey Chili to be exact!  It’s so good.  Good things can happen when you have some random ingredients laying around.

This chili is something different.  The Thai flavor in chili form definitely treats your taste buds.  It’s chili and fills you up, but is still lighter than most and healthy!
