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.

One of my spouse's favorites. Often request to have this chili.. It's yummy. I make it vegetarian and use vegetable broth. I also added diced zucchini, kale and chard (because I needed to use it before it went bad), 1 serrano chili and added more salt to give it more flavor. Read More

I think I went a little overboard with the cayenne but that's OK I like the heat. The hominy throws the recipe off. Next time I'll try it without the hominy and reserve it for posole. Read More

It's true this has so much flavor. We loved it. I kept to the recipe except to my dismay I thought I had hominy and I didn't so I subbed garbanzo beans. Wasn't sure how it would do but they worked. At the time of serving I took the cook's suggestion and added sour cream lime and cilantro to each bowl. Yummy Read More
