This is the second time I have made this recipe. This first time was a while ago but I remembered it being really good so I decided to make it again. It was just as I remembered – DELICIOUS!
SkinnyTaste.com – White Bean Turkey Chili
I did make a couple small changes. First I wasn’t using 3 pounds of ground turkey – at $5 a pound that is just too expensive. So I just used one. TIP: I buy my packs of ground turkey at Costco – you get 4 for about $20. Since I was using less turkey I used 5 cans of beans (instead of 4) – I think my cans might of been slightly bigger too. Also I didn’t use all cannellini beans like her recipe suggests. I used a mixture, 2 cans of chickpeas, 2 cans of navy beans and 1 can of white kidney beans. And it was awesome. I followed her seasoning suggestions in the recipe but next time I would make it spicier, it really wasn’t spice at all and I love spice.
The recipe makes lots and it is pretty easy. If you love beans you need to try this recipe out. According to her recipe it is only 211 calories per cup and it is very filling.
I took this to work to share with a co-worker. Both her and I did a bit of a cooking and split what we made. Perfect way to get some healthy lunches for work, with variation.
