Turkey Sausage White Chili

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by CarrolJ

A long time ago I ate some Chicken White Chili...that I thought was wonderful. Since that time I have been unable to find a recipe which would match those ingredients. I needed to make something with chicken or turkey for a meeting I'm going to tonight. Because of food allergies of some of the attendees, I decided to use a Turkey sausage for more flavor and to create my own recipe since those listed here didn't contain the ingredients I wanted to use.

This is a fantastic chili recipe! To lighten it up a bit I only used 1 15oz can of beans, then added some chopped green pepper and zucchini that I needed to use up and that worked very well. I used hot chili powder and this had the perfect amount of spice. Mine thickened up perfectly and I didn't have to use any extra chicken broth. Loved this - thanks for sharing the recipe!
