TURKEY AND WHITE BEAN CHILI WITH ANISE

 TURKEY AND WHITE BEAN CHILI

TURKEY AND WHITE BEAN CHILI

SCENE:

What's for dinner?  I'm in the mood for chili! Last week I made a traditional chili and it was jammin. This week I wanted to create another chili but use white beans and anise. Anise has the flavor of black licorice; Halloween is around the corner, right? I also decided to add white wine and citrus to the pot. I drink wine. I cook with wine. The chili was fantastic! The flavors married well and the 'final impression' (doctor lingo from husband Luke) was warming and hearty. 

SONG:
Day-O
I can imagine serving this at a zany dinner party and pairing black licorice cocktails
