    KMSoprano's Note:

    A healthier alternative to regular chili. This chili is economical and freezes well. I threw it together with things I already had in my kitchen after ground turkey went on sale at the store.

      I used 2 28oz. cans of tomatoes. Added chopped peppers. Added 4 tbsp. butter and increased some spices. I did not puree beans as I forgot. This was an excellent recipe. will make this often.

      This chile is amazing! I was looking for a low fat alternative using ground turkey, and this is the one! I doubled the tomatoes and added a little extra cumin, chile and brown sugar. I also used fresh corn. I smashed the beans in a bowl instead of pureeing, they really add a nice texture to the chile. My husband gave this recipe 5 stars and requested I make it again next week. Even in the heat of summer, this recipe isnt too heavy and is nice paired with a fresh garden salad.

      This was very different from the usual chili I make. It turned out good, just not what I was expecting. I ended up adding a tablespoon more chili powder and only using a 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon and still found it a little overpowering and I do prefer more tomato in chili. I really liked the idea of adding pureed white beans. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
