Turkey Chili Soup with Hominy
This recipe evolved from a soupy, thin chili I'd been served at a recent party that was lacking in texture and flavor. Determined to strike a balance between a soup and a stew, Grace Parisi started with the basic recipe and added a bit of tomato paste and flour to thicken the broth, then gave it a kick of flavor with cumin, chile powder and chipotle powder.
Fresh Tomato & Basil Spaghetti
Cut the basil shortly before using. Otherwise, the fragile herb turns black as it sits.
