Spicy white turkey chili

My day has involved: riding down the Lazy River with my water-loving oldest boy on a giant blue inner tube, comforting my youngest boy because of his aversion to waterparks and anything relating to a single drop of water, saying goodbye to my bestest pal and her children after a fun weekend together, packing for a week-long trip that begins on Tuesday, preparing for a long day of work tomorrow and dealing with a very-overly-tired-and-waterparked-out boy and his challenging behavior. Now the boys are in bed as I sit waiting for Dan to arrive home from work so we can watch the premiere of Walking Dead! I am beyond excited!

In the meantime, I will share this delightful white chili recipe with all of you! It is such a perfect time to throw chili ingredients into your crock pot to make your home smell wonderful and your tummies happy. I hope you enjoy this one!

Place 2 pounds of ground turkey in a large skillet. Cook over medium heat, stirring, until browned. Drain the grease and transfer to a large crock pot, along with:

2 cans cannellini beans, undrained

1 can butter beans, undrained

Add to the skillet:

1 yellow onion, chopped

1 green pepper, chopped

Cook over medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes.


4 cloves garlic, finely minced

3 to 4 jalapeno peppers, finely chopped

Cook for an additional 3 to 4 minutes.


1 teaspoon chili powder

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 teaspoon oregano

1/2 teaspoon cumin

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon black pepper

Mix well and remove from heat.

Add to the crock pot:

2 cans corn, drained

32 oz. chicken broth

Add the onion-pepper-spice mixture to the crock pot.

Mix well. Cook on Low for 6 hours.

Serve warm, topped with shredded mozzarella.

The zombies are here! Must go watch!

I LOVE every one of your recipes I've tried. They are DELICIOUS and my family loves to eat whatever I cook from your blog. I really wish you had a "Pin it" button, though because when I try to pin your recipes, the wrong picture posts which causes me to delete the pin. Is there a way to effectively pin your recipes?

How many calories per serving does this contain? Does anyone know?

Just a quick note that I'm back here making this AGAIN. It makes a big batch so extra goes into single serving size containers and put in the freezer. Makes for easy lunches in the future.
