Today, I was skiing at Deer Valley and heard people raving about the Deer Valley turkey chili. I decided to try it. It was delicious! I wanted the recipe, especially since I have 2lbs of turkey sitting in my freezer. After arriving home, I searched the internet and found the famous Deer valley recipe. You gotta love the internet!
