Turkey White Chili

Time for another easy recipe. Very fast prep and easy to make. Basically all you have to do is chop some vegetables, measure some seasonings, and then mix it all together. I halved the original recipe and found it was pretty spicy for us (we like things up to about medium spiciness) so this recipe tones it down just a little.

A teaspoon of cayenne pepper? That seems like an awful lot to me; don't most recipes usually call for less than a teaspoon? Was your version extremely spicy? I have to post the recipe for shaking beef that Neal made, it was so good!

I was just thinking that. For a batch like that, I would say 1/4tsp. then add later if need be. or add crushed red pepper flakes too.

Sounds yummy though. Can not wait to try this!

It was indeed tasty and also spicy. The original recipe was for twice as much food and called for 1 tablespoon of cayenne pepper. So I had just halved it and used 1.5 teaspoons but it was pretty spicy. So in writing it up here, I decreased that to 1 teaspoon but it sound like I should use even less!

Yes, this version was spicy! The original recipe was for twice as much food and called for 1 tablespoon of cayenne pepper. So I had just halved it and used 1.5 teaspoons but it was pretty spicy. So in writing it up here, I decreased that to 1 teaspoon but it sound like I should use even less! Shaking beef? What's that mean?

Excellent!

I love the look of this chili. The biggest downside of chili to me is the time it takes to prepare it. I always make a monster-sized batch and freeze most of it, but it still takes hours of your time. This recipe sounds great and healthy, I will surely be making this soon! Thanks for the recipe.

This recipe is pretty quick for chili. Probably since it's using ground meat instead of an intact cut of meat that would need much longer to cook. I have one chicken and kale stew recipe that I adored but that took so long to make that I think I've only ever made it once. Alas.
