At the request of my roommate...
Even though Spring is supposedly here, we all know that we have plenty of cold, miserable days ahead of us (sorry to break the bad news). But! I have a good idea. When you're sitting there trying to decide which of the on-campus dining halls is worth bearing the cold for, after hours of walking around campus and sitting in class, why don't you just go home to the delicious White Turkey Chili waiting in the crock pot for you?
Let me preface this recipe by saying that, when made right, this smells amazing.
WHITE BEAN TURKEY CHILI
1 pound ground turkey (or beef, if you prefer)
1-2 cups chicken broth (depending on how soup-y you like your chili)
1 (15 ounce) can Northern Cannellini Beans, not drained
1 (12 ounce) can diced tomatoes
1 can green chiles (this is what gives it a little kick...choose mild if you don't want the kick!)
1 medium white onion, chopped
1 teaspoon ground red (cayenne) pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
1 pinch ground black pepper
salt, to taste
1 packet white chili mix (optional)
Shredded cheese (to garnish, if desired)
On the stove, brown the ground turkey and drain off excess fat.
Mix in the remainder of the ingredients and stir well.
Cook on LOW 4-5 hours.
Stay Warm! You know that's my number one priority :)
