Turkey Chilli by Celine

I love comfort food. When I think of comfort food I think of something warm, hardy and delicious.  Can all these things really be healthy? Seems like a myth right, but It doesn’t have to be.

Chilli is one of those things that every family and restaurant have their staple on. All delicous in their own way. I have a new staple on how to present the delicous comfort of Mommas home-cooking made with healthy whole ingredients. You can be proud to feed your family this healthy meal.
