Skinny Cowboy Turkey Chili

Skinny Cowboy Turkey Chili

This is the best white chili variation, and it is healthier than most. This won first prize at our company chili cook-off. The other contestants were mad when they learned how easy the recipe is and that I had prepared it an hour before the competition. I make a double batch and fill a gallon-sized zip-top bag and freeze for great leftovers.

  1. Step 1

    Cook and stir turkey in a skillet until browned and crumbly, about 5 minutes. Drain excess grease.

    Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Saute corn, celery, onion, and garlic in the hot oil until tender, about 5 minutes. Add ground turkey. Stir in tomatoes, salsa, chicken broth, chili powder, cilantro, cayenne, Creole seasoning, cumin, and oregano. Simmer over medium-low heat until flavors combine, about 30 minutes.
  3. Step 3

    Add beans to the pot and simmer for 15 minutes. Add Cheddar cheese and stir until completely melted.
