looks pretty good, i might try i tout

That does look really good. Also should note that it has about 5 grams of fiber per serving.

I made this tonight and it was really good. Good macros, cheap and easy; I have a feeling this will be part of the rotation.

Thanks for the recipe 138.

You should go to Costco and buy the turkey in bulk.

03-27-2008, 01:33 PM
Wow that looks tasty, I think I'll have to try that tonight thanks for the recipe.

nice man, ground turkey is tasty

04-19-2008, 05:03 PM
looks good

I like my chili a little redder, so I might add a small can of tomato sauce or paste. And maybe some cayenne.

My dad and I just cooked this and it was amazing. Instead of using the white chili chicken seasoning we used garlic, chili powder, sage, pepper, and hot saue and it was awesome. We will def. make again.

I just made some of this stuff in literally only 7 minutes, really really tasty except for the part where I forgot to add in the water! >_<

It's really really good stuff though. Thanks.

Just Made this for dinner. Great recipe, easy to make! Thanks for the recipe!

I find that with most chili, it's best to simmer it for a long time (at least an hour) to let all the flavour release into the mixture.

Chili dishes aren't bad cooked up in 20 mins, but if you have the time simmer for longer, or better yet, use a slow cooker (crock pot) and cook all day.

PS: A couple of bay leafs flavor up a lot of dishes well, chili among them.

I make this same recipe with black beans. Very easy and tasty

06-21-2008, 04:22 AM
The only thing that drives me away from your recipe would be the amount of Sodium that is in the beans and flavoring. Looks filling though.

I'm going to try this tonight, thanks for the post OP. The only revision im doing is the seasoning...I couldn't find the white bean chili seasoning. I found chili seasoning and chicken seasoning so I might just mix the two together.. :)

06-24-2008, 09:07 AM
I tried this last night, very good :D

06-24-2008, 01:03 PM
excellent, thank you.

06-27-2008, 05:41 AM
Made this on Weds. Very good recipie. Very filling too!

made something similar with black beans and threw in tomatoes, mushrooms, and extra hotness.

I will agree about cooking it slow. I used a slow cooker and it definitely will make a difference if you have the time.

mccormick also makes a regular chili mix for kidney beans that is also great, definitely one of my favs

One tip with canned beans, throw out the liquid in the can, and rinse the beans a few times in cold running water. It gets rid of some of the salt, and removes the enzymes that cause excess farting from the beans.

I made this last week. I used regular chili seasoning though because I couldn't find white...I also added peppers and onions. It was the bomb-diggity. The fiber really did the trick too...:moon:

Making it tonight, looks delicious.

10-14-2008, 08:23 AM
looks really good, what i like to do to get some variety with the left overs is to buy tortillas, drain the chilli a bit and put it in the tortilla and eat it like a taco the next day for lunch

First time I made this it was definitely good, but just a tad bland. Tried it again last week only this time I threw it over some instant rice in a bowl, added some shredded cheese and mixed it all together. Definitely perked it up quite a bit.

I can't get over how delicious and easy this recipe is. I eat this about 3 times a week, typically 2 lunches and 1 dinner. In fact, I am eating it now, which inspired me to come on here and write about it.

10-15-2008, 07:51 PM
glad you guys like it
works well for me too

10-16-2008, 08:52 AM
looks nice, gonna give that a try

12-15-2008, 02:44 PM
I just made some of this stuff in literally only 7 minutes, really really tasty except for the part where I forgot to add in the water! >_<

I make this meal pretty regularly and I never add water. The liquid with the beans and a can of diced tomatos seems to give it enough liquid to be a good consistency.

12-16-2008, 06:40 PM
This recipe looks awesome I am going to try it tomarrow, I may try it with mixed beans or lentils also, sounds good :)

03-21-2009, 11:49 AM

03-21-2009, 12:11 PM
Oh hell, I totally forgot about this. Good on you for bringing it back to the top.
