Best White Chili Ever {Turkey x 2 White Chili}

Turkey x 2 White Chili
Seriously, this White Chili Recipe is to die for, I've made it a few times and it's such a hit that now I make a double recipe and we enjoy for lunches all week.

NOTES:  I had happened to have made a huge pot of Navy Beans but you can sub out canned beans {I've done both ways} and it's still fab. 
Another shortcut is using lunch meat as your turkey....  cheaper too!

       2 cups cooked turkey breast, coarsely chopped
1 pound ground turkey
2 small onions, chopped
1 can chopped green chilies
1 red bell pepper chopped
1/2 bag navy beans, cooked
{OR 2 cans navy beans, drained}
1 (14.5-oz) can reduced-sodium chicken broth
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
1 cup milk
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

WHAT YOU DO:Use your large stock pot.
Saute peppers and onions in a little olive oil
on medium-high for 2–3 minutes or until tender.
Reduce heat to medium and add ground turkey to pan;
cook 5–6 minutes, stirring to crumble meat,
or until brown and no pink remains.
Stir in green chili, cumin, chili powder, oregano, 
then beans and broth and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to low; simmer for at least 30 minutes
{but I've let simmer as long as several hours
 adding a little more chicken broth if I thought getting "dry"}.
Ten minutes before serving stir in turkey and milk;
cook 10 more minutes to blend flavors.
Top with cheese as you serve.

  2. Chili is one of my favorite foods in the entire world. And as cold and blustery as it is today, I could totally use a bowl of this!

  3. This looks good! We are "red" chili people but I think this might persuade me to start diversifying :) Thanks for sharing.

  4. I love chili and it's a standard in our house - Your version looks great :-)
