White Turkey Chili

White Turkey Chili

Adapted from

1 medium onion, chopped

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 Tbsp olive oil

1 pound lean ground turkey

1 (4oz) can diced green chilis

1 Tbsp cumin

1 Tbsp dried oregano

3/4 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp cayenne pepper

Salt & Pepper to taste

3 (14 oz) cans white cannellini beans, drained

3 cups chicken broth

In a large stockpot, cook the ground turkey, onions and garlic in the 1 Tbsp of olive oil until the turkey is done and the onions are soft.  Add the chilis and spices to the meat mixture.  Cook for 5 minutes.

Add 2 cans of cannellini beans and the chicken broth to the pan.  Squish the 3rd can of cannellini beans into a paste and add to the pot to thicken the chili.

Season with salt and pepper.  Serve with grated cheese and hot sauce to taste.

Recipe Notes: I liked this chili but Dewey thought it was “meh”. It isn’t very spicy so definitely kick up the cayenne if you like it hot.

Head over to Shan’s to see what else is cooking this Wednesday!
