Quinoa, Brown Rice Turkey Chilli

The thing about chillis is that they are so damn easy to put together, they taste yummy and it is protein rich. Well the last part depends on what you put into the chilli. I make chilli atleast once in a month because that is the only way that my son and huss take beans. And also I can add all the other stuff that they hesitate to eat into it and they never complain. This chilli is kinda a leftover version. I had some quinoa and some brown rice which couldn't be made into dishes of their own and hence I made this chilli. Warm chilli on a wintery night is bliss I would say.

~*What U Need*~
Quinoa - 1/2 cup
Brown rice - 1/2 cup, cooked as per instructions
Black beans - 1 can, rinsed and drained (15 oz can)
Kidney beans - 1 can, rinsed and drained (15 oz c
Corn - 1/2 cup
Ground turkey - 1/2 lb
Olive oil - 1 tbsp
Onion -1 , chopped
Garlic - 3, minced
Diced tomatoes - 1, 15 oz can
Tomato sauce - 1/2 of a can
Chilli powder - 1/2 tbsp
Cumin powder - 1 tsp
Salt, pepper
Cilantro leaves - 2 tbsp
Juice of 1/2 lime
Avocado - 1, diced
Sour cream

How I Made it:
Rinse the qunioa and set aside. Heat oil in a large pan, add garlic and onion and cook till brown. Add the turkey and cook till almost done. Add the quinoa, brown rice, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, chili powder, cumin, and 2 cups water. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Reduce heat to low; simmer and cook until thickened, about 30 minutes. Stir in beans, corn, cilantro and lime juice, and heat for another 3 mins.

Serve immediately with avocado and sour cream.

So thats it Folks...
