Earlier today, Chicago Firefighter John Joyce (a friend of mine, and this site) made an appearance on Chicago’s Very Own WGN TV as their “Firehouse Chef of the Week.” John isn’t just a Firefighter and fine cook – he’s also the frontman of POOCHAMUNGAS, a kindie rock band that hopefully you’ve heard me talk about… and if not, go grab their new album, BLOCK PARTY, right now! Check out John’s appearance below, along with his recipe for some tasty turkey chili… which oddly enough, isn’t far off from what we make here at Rock Father HQ. Chicago style!



Poochamungas’ 2-11 Turkey Chili

You will need the following ingredients:
  • 2 lbs. ground turkey
  • 1 large diced onion
  • 1 large diced green pepper
  • 1 jar of salsa (you decide how hot)
  • 28 oz. can crushed tomatoes
  • 14 oz can re-fried black beans
  • 14 oz. can black beans
  • 1 diced jalapeno (optional)
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 3 Tbs chili powder (season to taste)

Directions: Saute your ground turkey on medium heat and when mostly done add the onions, green peppers and jalapenos.  Continue sauteing until onions are clear. Set flame to low. Add salsa and crushed tomatoes and chili powder.  Simmer till bubbling and then add re-fried black beans.  When bubbling again add black beans.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Add more chili powder as needed.
