White Bean and Turkey Chili...


 Not very pretty I know.  Beige meat  usually isn't.  But don't let the bland color fool you.  This low fat turkey chili is delicious.  Here's the recipe from Allrecipes.com.  Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground turkey
  • 2 (4 ounce) cans canned green chile peppers, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • ground cayenne pepper to taste
  • 3 (15 ounce) cans cannellini beans
  • 5 cups chicken broth ( 4 cups is plenty)
  • 2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese ( I use 1 cup lite Jack cheese)

Directions

  1. In a large pot over medium heat, combine the onion, garlic and ground turkey and saute for 10 minutes, or until turkey is well browned. Add the chile peppers, cumin, oregano, cayenne pepper to taste and saute 5 more minutes.
  2. Add two cans of the beans and the chicken broth to the pot. Take the third can of beans and puree them in a blender or food processor. Add this to the pot along with the cheese. Stir well and simmer for 10 minutes, allowing the cheese to melt.

  4. This sounds very good! I always buy the four pack of ground turkey at Costco so I'm always on the lookout for a new way to prepare it. Thanks!

  15. I love this kind of a dish, because you can make as much or as little as you wish! I'm not so great with leftovers, so making the small batch gives me the treat of the dish without having it for the whole week! Great recipe!

  16. Oh I do think I have to copy this recipe. I may have to leave the turkey out since I am going on the vegan diet with my daughter but I think it will still be delicious.
    Hope all is well with you and your having a great week.
    I am hoping to have a giveaway tomorrow so hopefully you can come by and enter.
    Love
    Maggie
