Wondering what to do with the turkey leftovers? Here's an innovative and healthy way to use turkey.
White Turkey Chili
1 Tbsp. canola oil
1 lb. ground turkey breast
3/4 cup chopped onions
3/4 cup chopped green peppers
3/4 cup chopped red peppers
2 garlic cloves, chopped
2 tsp. ground cumin
2 tsp. dried oregano
Pinch of ground cloves
1 cup chopped tomatillos
1 (4.5 oz.) can chopped green chiles, undrained
1 (15 oz.) can cannelini or other white beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup cilantro leaves, chopped
1 cup low fat, reduced-sodium chicken broth
2 Tbsp. lime juice
Salt and ground black pepper, to taste
1/4 cup chopped scallions
In a large, heavy pan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add turkey and cook until it loses its pink color, 5 minutes. Note: don’t break turkey apart completely, but lightly loosen it into smaller pieces with wooden spoon. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
In same pot, sauté the onions and peppers until soft, 5 minutes. Mix in garlic and sauté 1 minute longer.Then Mix in cumin, oregano, cloves and tomatillos and cook until the tomatillos are soft, 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add chiles, beans, cilantro, and broth. Return turkey to pot. Simmer, uncovered, until chili is thick enough to plop from a spoon, 10 minutes. Mix in lime juice and season to taste with salt and pepper. Divide among 4 bowls, top with scallions and serve.
