Cooking Light's Turkey and White Bean Chili

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by MelvinsWifey

This does not taste like light cooking. It's so easy, full of flavor, and can be easily modified for spiciness or anything else! This is the only chili I make now... I've modified it a bit, and it's tasty!

This was a great option for chili. After following the recipe exactly, I found that it didn't have enough liquid to suit our tastes and needed more heat. I added a can of petite diced tomatoes with diced green chilies to conquer both issues. I also added a little more cumin and chili powder and allowed it all to simmer while my Jiffy mix (we all take the help where we can get it, right?) cornbread baked. Yum. It was really good soup that warmed us on a cold night.
