Chipotle-Lime Chili Mac

I love watching Paula Dean!  It's her southern accent and laugh that reminds me of my mother.  So Paula and I cook together most every night at my house.  Well, Paula made goulash for her son, and I decided to tweak that recipe.  This is what I came up with...

Chipotle-Lime Chili Mac

1 lb. wheat penne pasta
1 lb. ground turkey 
1 package chili spice mix 
4 chipotle peppers
1 lime
2 cloves garlic
1 16. oz. can of crushed tomatoes
1 can of diced tomatoes
1 onion
1 bell pepper

In a large pot, brown the turkey.  Add chopped onions, bell pepper, and garlic and saute for a minute or two.  Add chipotle peppers, crushed tomatoes, diced tomatoes, then squeeze the lime into the pot.  Let this simmer for 15 minutes. 

Now add the penne pasta into the pot, and let that simmer with a low boil for 20 minutes with the lid on.  Make sure to check it and stir it around so nothing sticks to the bottom. 

This is a little spicy, so if you want to tame it down don't use as many chipotle peppers!
