Top-ranked recipe named "Turkey Chili with White Beans"

Share it:

A chili that is low in fat yet high in flavor levels; not too spicy but you can remedy that with pepper flakes or tabasco sauce. The use of ground turkey is a nice change if you're reluctant to eat ground beef!

"This is the second time I have made this chili in as many months. It is 105 degrees today in Texas but this chili really hit the spot. I did not change one item and followed the recipe to the letter. Yummy! This is now one of my favorites. It is even better the day after!"

Awesome chili!!! So flavorful!.. I did not use the tomato sauce and a little less stock for more thickness but it is awesome!

Note the subtle flavor of cocoa which is prevalent in Mexican cooking. Feel free to add heat spice as this is rather mild. If you like your chili more soupy, add one additional can of stock or broth. I prefer this the next day reheated as the flavors have married quite well. [I posted this recipe.]
