Chili with Ground Turkey

Recipe By Chef

"A great alternative to regular chili. This dish has a unique taste that even the pickiest eater will enjoy. Make sure you spice this one to taste! Garnish with cheese, salsa, sour cream and cilantro leaves, and serve with rolled tortillas on the side."


1 onion, chopped 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 cloves garlic, minced ground cayenne pepper to taste
1 1/2 pounds ground turkey ground white pepper to taste
2 (4 ounce) cans canned green chile peppers, chopped 3 (15 ounce) cans cannellini beans
1 tablespoon ground cumin 5 cups chicken broth
1 tablespoon dried oregano 2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese


1. In a large pot over medium heat, combine the onion, garlic and ground turkey and saute for 10 minutes, or until turkey is well browned. Add the chile peppers, cumin, oregano, cinnamon, cayenne pepper to taste and white pepper to taste and saute for 5 more minutes.

2. Add two cans of the beans and the chicken broth to the pot. Take the third can of beans and puree them in a blender or food processor. Add this to the pot along with the cheese. Stir well and simmer for 10 minutes, allowing the cheese to melt
