The recipe comes to me by way of Betty Suzanne and is my favorite way to use up left-over turkey.
White Turkey Chili
1 1/2 cups onion, coarsely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 jalapeno pepper, minced (I don't bother with this)
1 can chopped mild green chilies
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup chicken broth
1 can white beans, drained and rinsed
2 cups cooked turkey, cubed
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup Jack cheese (I use pepper jack)
In a 3 quart saucepan, over medium-high heat, saute onions and garlic in oil until onions are tender (about 5 minutes). Add jalapeno, chilies, cumin, oregano, cayenne pepper and salt. Cook for 1 minute. Stir in broth, beans and turkey. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 20-25 minutes or until slightly thickened. Remove from heat and stir in cilantro. Serve hot with cheese on top and tortilla chips on the side.
Verdict: I've already said that I like it. Part of what's great about this recipe is that it is more like a guideline...I've made it without cilantro and it's fine. I don't add jalapenos and it's fine. I stir in extra cheese and it's fine. Cook it in the crockpot? Fine. You get my drift.
