About a month ago, I was casually surfing Pinterest and found this super easy chili recipe that I cook all the time now! It is so delicious and literally only takes twenty to thirty minutes to make. Some of these items you may already have in your pantry or fridge!

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Serves: 4


  • 1 tsp of olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • Salt and pepper for taste
  • 1 14-oz can of diced tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 14-oz can corn kernels, drained and rinsed
  • 1 14-oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 tbsp hot chili flakes
  • 3/4 cup of shredded cheese

These last two aren’t part of the recipe but make the chili taste even better!

  • 1 scoop of sour cream
  • 2 slices of avocado


  1. Heat a non-stick skillet on medium heat. Add olive oil, onion and garlic. Cook for about 3 minutes.
  2. Add ground turkey and break into pieces. Brown the meat, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Stir in diced tomatoes, tomato paste, corn kernels, blacks beans and hot chili flakes.
  4. Cover with a lid and cook for 10 to 15 minutes.
  5. Remove from heat, add shredded cheese and mix well.
  6. Garnish with cilantro and serve.
  7. Optional: top with sour cream and additional cheese

This recipe is so versatile. You can eat the chili with some chips or add the chili into some taco shells.



Life is filled with beautiful events.

When these events happen, the first thing we want to do is take a photo, or share it on Instagram, Snapchat, and Facebook. The reason we do this is because we want our friends and family to know the cool event that we are experiencing. We want people to almost feel this sense of jealousy. We want people to wish they were there with us.

I challenge you to distance yourself from taking photos as much as you do now. Some moments are so beautiful and we don’t take them in because we are too worried about pulling out our smartphone. When something beautiful in your life happens, soak it in. Smile. Laugh. Cry. Show emotion & experience emotion. It will do your heart so good. I’ve seen so many beautiful things in this short life I’ve lived. I’ve witnessed proposals, stunning fireworks, funny acts and so much more but I have no pictures to show for it. That is because I decided to live in that moment and experience it in the fullest.

Besides, people don’t need to know what you’re doing 100% of the time anyway?

Here is an awesome article from SeerSucker Mag by Richie Siegel explaining this opinion more in depth!
