This chili is a healthier version of your traditional chili. But don't let the idea of healthy scare you away! This chili packs in the fresh flavors of peppers, cumin, and cilantro all combined into one amazing dish. Or as my fiancee would describe it, 'super-good'. Have fun with this recipe. Spice it up or simmer it down. Just have fun in the kitchen!

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir onion, celery, and poblano peppers in the hot oil until tender, 5 to 10 minutes. Add garlic, cumin, coriander, and cayenne pepper to onion mixture; cook and stir until garlic is fragrant, about 1 minute.

  • Mix turkey into onion mixture; cook and stir until turkey is cooked through and no longer pink, 5 to 7 minutes. Add chicken broth, cannellini beans, and oregano to turkey mixture; cover skillet and cook for 15 minutes. Stir hominy and salt into chili and continue cooking until heated through, about 15 minutes more.

Cook's Notes:

Garnish each serving with sour cream, cilantro, lime juice, and tortilla chips! Important only to add chips to individual servings (will get soggy). Serve with tortilla chips or bread.

Add a little water if you like more moisture in your chili or you can use less broth if you would like it a thicker style.
