Turkey & White Bean Chili




Go give her some birthday love

and try this chili. So healthy yet delicious.



1 tblsp olive oil
1 lb ground turkey (93% lean)
½ tsp salt
1 medium onion chopped
4 tsp chili powder
1 tblsp ground cumin
1 28oz can diced tomatoes in juice
1 can white kidney (cannellini) beans, rinsed & drained
½ cup plain nonfat yogurt

In 12-inch skillet, heat oil on medium-high until hot. Add turkey & 1/2 teaspoon salt, & cook 6 to 8 minutes or until turkey loses its pink color throughout, stirring to break it up with side of spoon. Add onion & cook 4 minutes. Stir in chili powder & cumin; cook 1 minute.

Add tomatoes with their juice, beans & 1/2 cup water; heat to boiling on high. Reduce heat to medium & cook, uncovered, 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Ladle chili into serving bowls & top with a dollop of yogurt.

My Thoughts:

Yogurt may seem odd on top of this but it works. Feel free to sub low-fat sour cream instead to keep this healthy.

And here is the newest addition to the fam, Makayla. We haven't met her yet so hopefully we'll be getting to Arizona soon to do just that.

Your newest family addition is precious and I love the story about you & Terry sleeping in different rooms. I hope you have a great day and I can't wait to read about your edible gift! YUM!

Can't wait to try out that chili... Of course I will probably have to wait another week or two for a cold day (which always makes for a good chili day)!!

What a tasty and healthy chili. I've never thought to add yogurt on top - I am sure it added a nice tang to the chili.
