I made an amazing chili recently. I took a step away from the standard red chili and went with a white chili. I found the basic recipe on Weight Watchers.com and decided to alter it a bit to my liking and to use fresh ingredients I had available. Recipes are nice, but sometimes you have to adjust to your palate and enjoy the creative process…
I served the chili with mini corn muffins. (Wow! I am getting hungry typing about this!) This was completely delicious! Enjoy it!
White Bean and Turkey Cilantro Chili
|2 pound(s) uncooked ground turkey breast|
|1/4 cup(s) cilantro, fresh, coarsely chopped (plus extra for garnish)|
|1 large onion(s), chopped|
|2 medium garlic clove(s), chopped|
|32 oz fat-free chicken broth|
|2 green bell peppers, chopped|
|2 red bell peppers, chopped|
|1 tsp chili powder, chipotle variety|
|30 oz canned white beans, drained and rinsed|
|4 jalapenoes, chopped|
|1 can of diced tomatoes|
- Coat a large skillet with cooking spray. Cook turkey, onion and garlic over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until turkey is browned, about 10 minutes; drain off any fat.
- Add turkey mixture and remaining ingredients to a 3 1/2 quart or larger slow cooker. Cover and cook on low heat setting for at least 4 hours.
Top with cilantro for further color and flavor as a garnish when serving.
