Light, White Turkey Chili

Monday, September 3, 2018

The month of September has arrived, and so has my desire for all things soup... Never mind the fact that it's still 90 degrees every day! Recently, I was in the mood for chili, but needed to find something that was:

(a) Tomato and onion free due to food allergies/sensitivities
(b) High in protein for members of the family who are trying to build muscle
(c) Light and diet friendly for members of the family who are trying to lose weight

Enter my new friend, White Turkey Chili! This Weight Watcher's friendly recipe has quickly become a crowd-pleaser in our family. I hope you enjoy it, too!


1 lb ground turkey breast
5 cloves garlic, minced
1 4 oz can chopped green chile peppers, drained
1 green bell pepper, diced
1/2 Tbsp ground cumin
1/2 Tbsp dried oregano
1 tsp ground cinnamon
Salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper to taste
2 cans cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup fat free half and half
3 cups fat free chicken broth
Optional: cheese, light sour cream, and chopped cilantro


Brown your ground turkey breast in a large pot.

Add garlic, drained green chile peppers, and seasonings and saute for 5-10 minutes.

Add one can of cannellini beans and chicken broth. Bring to a light boil.

Run remaining can of cannellini beans through your blender or a food processor. Add to the soup, along with the half and half.

Simmer until thoroughly heated.

Top with cheese, sour cream, or cilantro as desired!
