COOKING IN HEELS is a comic and practical cookbook blog for the modern Glamazon learning her way around the kitchen.




On a cold winter ski day in Park City, I was flying down the mountain enjoying the fresh snow.

Although not very experienced, I was able to keep up (for the most part) with my pro-level ski friends.

On the last run of the day, after a few beers, I decided to take another route.

Unfortunately, the path I chose was a double black diamond with MOGULS.

After a rough ride down, and a long day on the slopes, I make this to warm our bellies:


  • Garlic, minced, 1 tablespoon
  • 1lb ground turkey
  • Chili powder
  • 1 can of black and / or white beans, drained (I use one of each)
  • Picante sauce (glass jar), mild or spicy
  • 1 can of stewed tomatoes (with liquid)
  • 1 medium onion
  • Blue corn tortilla chips for dippin!

Chop and cook the onions and garlic in pan with a bit of olive oil. Let them soften and add turkey and cook through (break it up in little pieces... not patties.) Add (5-7) dashes of chili powder to meat and onions as it cooks.

In a big pot, add: Picante, 1 can of stewed tomatoes with juice, beans (drained) and cooked turkey/onions/garlic mixture. Mix all together and add 4 tablespoons of chili powder... or more to taste! Put top on pot and keep at medium-low heat, stir every 5 minutes for 20 minutes. Let pot sit on low or off... keep stirring and enjoy!

How to Plate: Spoon into bowl. Add a dollop of sour cream or guacamole and insert one tortilla chip to stand upright in center of bowl.

Trief: Add cheese or sour cream! Goy it up!
