Turkey and White Bean Chili
This is a South Beach Diet recipe that is delicious and very quick and easy to make. I prepared and cooked the entire meal in about 30 minutes tonight after work.
1T. extra-virgin olive oil
1 medium onion, roughly chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 lb. turkey cutlets, cut into 1/2-inch pieces (can substitute chicken)
1T. chili powder (can use chipotle chili powder for a smokier taste)
1t. ground cumin
1 (15oz.) can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained (can substitute black, navy or pinto beans)
1 (14.5oz.) can Mexican diced tomatoes
1c. lower-sodium chicken broth
Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened. About 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook 1 minute more. Add turkey, chili powder and cumin; cook, stirring often, until turkey is no longer pink inside, about 5 minutes. Add beans, tomatoes with juice and broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until flavors blend, about 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Top with shredded cheddar cheese. Yield: 3-4 servings.
