My kind of lazy is me crocheting while simultaneously watching TV or editing a photo while I should be taking a nap. It’s hard for me to just sit on the couch and do absolutely nothing. BUT I know that lazy days are absolutely necessary when you are a work-a-holic.

On days when I try to be lazy (which is hopefully once a week) I always try and stay lazy in the kitchen too. This is why I ALWAYS have a plenty of canned beans and frozen meat on hand…so that at any moment I can throw it all in the crockpot and let it simmer. Without me doing a thang.

I call this batch of chili, my Lazy Girl Turkey Salsa Chili. Because it’s just that!

There is no definite recipe- so you can mix and match your favorite beans and meats. In this recipe, I used what I had on hand: frozen ground turkey, black beans, kidney beans, white northern beans, diced tomatoes, and salsa. There is no chopping involved.
