Bold and full of flavor, this delicious Turkey Chili with White Beans is sure to warm you up on a cold winter’s day.
We have had so much snow here in Massachusetts, since the initial Snowmaggedon storm a few weeks ago, that I’ve lost count, but it’s well over 6 feet. In fact, last week, the mayor of Boston had to issue a statement warning residents to stop jumping out of their windows into the giant piles of snow below. I can see why it would be tempting, all that white fluffiness, but also very dangerous and a bad idea.
So, since we’re still covered in snow here, I’m still on a comfort food kick. A big bowl of chili, such as this Turkey Chili with White Beans, is the ultimate in comfort food. And since this chili is made with lean turkey, it has the benefit of being a healthy comfort food option.
Even though it’s healthy, this Turkey Chili with White Beans is still super delicious and full of flavor. It contains cocoa powder and cinnamon, along with the more typical spices used in chili, and this combination gives it a wonderful depth.
I first made this Turkey Chili with White Beans years ago, after coming across the recipe at epicurious.com. The unusual spices intrigued me and after I made it, I was so delighted by the surprising depth of flavor that, combined with the fact that it’s a healthy choice, it’s a chili that I make regularly, even when we’re not covered in snow.
This Turkey Chili with White Beans packs a spicy kick, my husband and I love it this way. However, if you prefer a milder chili, you will want to reduce the amount of chili powder, as I need to do to suit my kids’ tastes.
This warm and satisfying Turkey Chili with White Beans is the perfect meal for a cold winter’s day, but it is so delicious, flavorful and healthy that it’s wonderful any time of year.
So, tell me, would you ever consider jumping out your window into a giant pile of snow?
Just kidding! Of course you wouldn’t. Instead, tell me — what are your favorite activities to do during the snowy weather? Or better yet, if applicable, make me jealous and tell me about your part of the world, where there is no snow!
