So I wanted to find a chilli recipe that was a little lighter and didn’t require beef. So I looked and found a white bean turkey chilli recipe and made it my own… so here is Chases Chilli
You will need:
2 sticks of celery chopped into small cubes
2 whole carrots chopped into small cubes
2 medium onions (any kind I like red or sweet white) chopped into small cubes
6 cloves of garlic chopped
1 lb (or so) of ground turkey
2 cans of Cannellini beans
28 oz diced tomatoes
1 1/2 cups water
pepper and salt
4 green onions
3. Add in 1 tbsp garlic powder, 1 tbsp pepper and salt, 1/4 tsp cinnamon, 1 tbsp chilli powder, 1 tbsp smoked paprika, 2 tsp thyme, 2 tsp oregano.
5. Add in additional spices to taste. I added 1/2 tbsp of smoked paprika, 1/2 tbsp chilli powder, 1/2 tbsp pepper, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, and 1/2 tsp salt.
7. Put a lid on the pot a simmer on low heat, untill the beans are warm or until you are ready to eat. Stil occassionaly.
Other tips and tricks :
You can add in cumin, tamarack, or use regular paprika.
You can use any type of cheese, I use colby monterey jack.
You can use ground chicken if you want instead of turkey.
Instead of water you can add vegetable or chicken stock (adjust your spices accordingly). Add the liquid as needed to keep the ingredients covered.
