Shmammy's Turkey Chili

These are by far the funniest recipe directions I've ever received, so even if you don't make this you should still read through and have a nice laugh!  One of my best friends (Shmammy) sent me this Turkey Chili recipe to try out last week, and it was delicious!  I wanted to share it with everyone before the weather gets too warm for a dish like this, so here you go (you're welcome in advance):
I can practically smell it cooking.

You will need:
1 cup chopped onions
3 cloves garlic (or 3 tbs minced garlic)
1 cup mushrooms
2 tsps cumin
1 tsp oregano
1 tbs chili powder
1 lb lean ground turkey
1 28 oz. can of dice tomatoes
1 15 oz. can kidney beans
1 15 oz. can pinto beans 
1 cup of water (optional)

-Get a big pot!
-Saute 1 cup of chopped onions and 3 cloves of garlic!  (or a few tbs if you have the jarred minced garlic like me!)
-Do that for like 3 min?
-Put the mushroomies in there!  I think the recipe said a cup but I like me some mushrooms so I put in a lot more.
-Let that cook for 5 min!
-Add in 2 tsp of cumin!
-1 tsp of oregano i think? haha
-1 tbs of chili powder!
-Let that get all yummy then add in 1 lb of ground turkey!  Go for the lean!
-Cook that until it's no longer pink and add 1 28 oz. can of diced tomatoes!
-Add 1 can of kidney beans and 1 can of pinto (Add what you like! Black beans? Even corn? Woohoo for southwestern!)
-1 cup of water is optional depending on how thick you want it.
-Let that simmer for 30 min!
-Eat with multigrain crackers!  A yummy baguette!  Goldfishies!  Cheese!  Sour cream!  Put it over brown rice!  Yummmmmmmerooni!

These directions had me cracking up laughing!  I served it over brown rice and sprinkled some low fat cheddar cheese on top...DEEE-LICIOUS!
