Turkey and Sorghum Grain Chili
"Quick (and healthyish!) Turkey & Sorghum Grain Chili. The first time I tasted chili was in South Korea. We, the English teachers were invited to a party at the Air Force base just outside of Wonju...Camp Long, I think it was called. They handed me a red plastic cup with maybe 2 spoonfuls in it, because those soldiers treasured it so much they were stingy. Anyways, I sometimes make chili now, especially when it rains...Drink wine, listen to Miles Davis and remember that day I slipped and fell in front of everyone ther. Don't love the texture of ground turkey (?
