You'll love this fresh tasting, simple turkey chili recipe especially when you don't have to worry about what to make for lunch or dinner the next couple of days!
*Check out my step by step photo gallery below*
I like my chili SPICY, so I use whole spices for extra kick. You can also add cayenne pepper to really spice it up.
You just have to grind them in a food processor or coffee grinder before you mix them into the veggies.
I love a big, heaping dollap of "healthy sour cream" on my chili!! Hmmm!
I'm not a fan of the fat, so I use fat free plain Greek yogurt (it's a lot thicker than regular plain yogurt) I swear it tastes like the real deal.
I add fresh cilantro and a lime wedge to give it that extra fresh taste.
If chopping onions makes you cry, put a candle between you and your onions. The smoke helps shield you from that lovely onion sting.

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium onion, diced (about 1 1/2 cups)
1 green pepper
1 can diced tomatos
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and white ribs removed, finely diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon ground cumin
2 tablespoons ground coriander
1 tablespoon oregano
2 pounds ground white meat turkey
2 (15.5-ounce) cans white beans such as cannelini, preferably low-sodium,
drained and rinsed
2 cups organic chicken broth
2 teaspoons sea salt
1/4 cup nonfat plain Greek-style yogurt
3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves
Add a little olive oil to your pan (or I like to use unrefined coconut oil. It's another "good fat." It cooks at higher temps than olive oil which can break down under high heat).
In another pan, saute peppers and onions until soft. Add brown turkey, coriander, cumin, oregano and sea salt. Stir well and combine. (Add more spices if you like an extra kick)
Add the rest of the ingredients reduce heat and simmer, uncovered 20 minutes. Gently stir in beans and continue to simmer for 10 minutes.
I love to top each bowl with a dollap of plain, Greek yogurt, fresh cilantro, squeeze fresh lime juice. That's enough for me but feel free to add some shredded cheese.
