The weather is cooling down and that means I am frequently craving one thing to eat: chili! Chili is one of my favorite meals to eat, really no matter the weather, but when it’s cold out, I love it even more. It’s one of those meals that’s great for the whole family and also often tastes just as good reheated for lunches the next day. It is also a perfect meal to serve when you are planning a big game day party- especially when it’s served in ready to go personal portions! So no matter which team you are cheering for, keep your guests happy and the party going on with these little personal tortilla bowls filled with the bold flavors of this so easy to make Turkey Taco Chili.
Game Day is a great day for friends and family to gather and root for our favorite teams. It’s also a great day for delicious food, and these personal Turkey Taco Chili Bowls are perfect for them. Served in the new Whole Wheat Taco Boats from Old El Paso, your guests will love their own portion of warm chili served in a container they can eat! This chili is made from just a few wholesome ingredients and is super filling and tasty. Seasoned with Old El Paso taco seasonings, it has a bold taste that kids and adults will love.
