TONIGHT'S QUICK CHILI WITH TOPPINGS

2 cloves garlic, smashed
3-4 pounds lean ground beef and ground turkey, half and half
2 cans tomato, 1 sauce and 1 diced
1 can cannelini beans, rinsed and drained
1/4 cup cumin and 1/4 cup Dhana Jeera but most people don't keep that in their pantry so you could use more cumin or some chili powder, which I don't use either because it's so full of salt.
1 cup water
1 small jar of your favorite salsa
1-4 tablespoons of tabasco

Saute garlic over low-medium heat in dutch oven for a few minutes until it smells great, add meat, saute until done. Drain. Add tomatoes, beans, spices and stir. Simmer on low heat for a few minutes until it smells great again. Add water and simmer until it turns a rich color and smells great again. Add salsa and tabasco and simmer on low until you're hungry.

Serve in shallow bowls with toppings: chopped onions, sour cream, sliced avacados, goldfish crackers, grated cheese, and saltines.
