Turkey, Green Chile and White Bean Chili


  • 1 red onion, diced
  • 1 jalapeno, minced
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 pounds ground dark meat turkey, preferably organic
  • ½ tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1 ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 ½ tbsp. cumin
  • 2 4 ounce cans diced green chiles
  • 2 cups chicken stock, reduced sodium
  • 2 cans cannellini beans, drained
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • Shredded cheese, for garnish
  • Avocado, for garnish
  • Tortilla chips, for garnish
  • Green onions, sliced for garnish
  • Lime wedges, for garnish


  1. In a medium sized Dutch oven drizzle a few tbsp. of EVOO. Bring up to heat over medium heat and add in the onion and jalapeno. Sauté until softened, about 5 minutes. Add in the garlic and cook for 2 minutes.

  2. Next add in the ground turkey, salt, pepper and cumin. Mix together breaking up the turkey into small pieces. Cook until browned and cooked through.

  3. Add in both cans of chiles, chicken stock and beans. Stir to combine and then reduce to a very low simmer. Cook for 2 hours, stirring occasionally until thickened. Taste for seasoning, adding more salt or cumin if needed.

  4. To finish off, squeeze in the juice of 1 lime. This helps brighten the flavors and add a little freshness.

  5. Serve with shredded cheese, avocado, crushed tortilla chips, green onions and a lime wedge.
