Watcha Cookin'

I have been using this recipe forever and it is delicious. I tweak mine just a bit from the above recipe cause I did not need a ginormous batch even though this still make a lot and I have picky eaters.
1 lb  ground turkey meat
1 medium onion diced very fine (I use my handy dandy Vidalia Chop Wizard)
3 cloves garlic peeled and diced
2 (14.5 oz) cans of diced tomatoes
1 (15 oz) can tomato sauce
2 tbsp cumin
1/4 c chili powder
1 tbsp dried oregano
1 (14.5 oz) can pinto beans (drained & rinsed)
1 (14.5 oz) can black beans (drained & rinsed)
1 (14.5 oz) can kidney beans (drained & rinsed)
salt & pepper to taste
Brown ground turkey in a skillet, drain and set aside. In a large pot sauté onions and garlic over medium heat. Then add canned tomatoes to the pot along with all of your spices. Let that cook for about 8 minutes then add your meat and beans. Partially cover and simmer for 4 hours. Salt & Pepper to taste.
The only thing I did differently from the original recipe was a total accident. I thought I had yellow cornmeal but I did not I had Martha White yellow cornbread mix so I added the cornmeal mix along with all the other ingredients except the salt. Turned out delicious and way better and way more moist hate that word then jiffy mix sweet corn muffins.
3/4 cup Martha White Yellow Cornbread Mix
1 1/4 c all purpose flour
1 tbsp baking powder (not even sure this was necessary because of the cornbread mix but it workedWinking smile)
1/2 cup sugar
2 large eggs
2 tbsp honey
3/4 cup milk
1 stick unsalted butter melted and cooled
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line or spray muffin tin.
In large bowl whisk together dry ingredients.
In a separate bowl whisk eggs, honey and milk. 
Add milk mixture and melted butter to dry ingredients and mix just until incorporated. Do not over mix.
Pour in muffin tin and bake for 17-20 minutes. (mine only took 17)
This recipe was so stinkin’ easy and delicious!!
1 butter pecan cake mix
2 can apple pie filling (or caramel apple pie filling ← I have only ever found this at hellmart.)
2 stick of butter melted (or you can use sprite the recipe says…I did not cause that just sounded weird.)
Spray 8x11 pan with nonstick spray and preheat oven at 350 degrees. Pour both cans of apple pie filling in pan then cover with cake mix. Pour melted butter over top to cover cake mix and bake for 45-60 minutes or until golden brown on top. Serve with ice cream (I used butter pecan and you should too LOL!!)
