If you are like me, you enjoy an occasional Bloody Mary, but still have a large portion of the bottle of mix leftover. I stumbled across a recipe for a breakfast bake that called for Bloody Mary mix and it got me thinking about what else I could add the mix to. Since I happened to be making chili that week, the partnership was born! We are in the midst of winter here in Wisconsin (far away from the girls at Truly Lovely!) so this time of year, we enjoy a variety of soups to keep us warm.  Although this recipe is perfect for any weather.

Here is my super SIMPLE Recipe for Bloody Mary Chili:

1 lb ground turkey or ground beef
1 C fresh mushrooms rinsed or 1 can mushrooms drained
2 cans chili beans (not partial to a specific brand)
2 cans fire roasted tomatoes (not partial to a specific brand)
Bloody Mary Mix (I used  Zing Zang brand, nonalcoholic)
Brown the beef or turkey and drain

Then add all ingredients to a crock pot. Set on high for 3-4 hours or low for 6-8 hours.
I like to top my chili with cheddar cheese and sour cream. 
Then, enjoy!

Thanks so much to Angela for sharing this yummy idea! 
Even though I’m sure it MUCH warmer in AZ than in WI this is still a recipe we’ll be trying out ASAP! 
Hope to see you over at The Simple Things! 😉
Have a lovely day dolls!
Happy Cooking!!!
