White Turkey Chili. It’s fresh, delicious, and easy. What could be better?

Before my husband and I officially quarantined ourselves, I did one last stock up at Aldi.

I didn’t stock up like one of the people you see on Facebook, but I did buy a good amount of beans, frozen turkey, and long-lasting items like jalapeños and cilantro.

The Perfect Quarantine Food: Chili

We’re going on week 6 of quarantine, and although we’ve had to make some trips to the grocery store, we’re still going through that stock up a while ago.

I’m trying to get creative with what we’re making to keep things fresh.

I had a craving for chili, but didn’t have any canned tomatoes.

But I did have beans, turkey, broth, and jalapeños. White turkey chili! I didn’t even know if this was a thing!

After a few internet searches, I learned it was, in fact, an option. And I took at stab at my own recipe.

It is SO good.

I had planned on making this for lunches throughout the week, but we ate the whole pot almost immediately. Whoops.

Try white turkey chili this week – it’s GOOD.

White Turkey Chili Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 small white onions, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 lb ground or shredded turkey
  • 2 jalepenos, chopped 
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 tsp oregano 
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 2 cans cannellini beans, drained
  • 2 cups turkey, chicken or veggie stock/broth 
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt 

For Serving

  • cilantro
  • sour cream
  • sliced jalepenos


Heat olive oil  on medium heat in a large soup pot or Dutch oven. 

Add onions and garlic. Soften for 3-4 minutes. 

 Next, add turkey to the pot. Ground or shred the turkey well and cook until browned, about 5-6 minutes.

Add diced jalepenos, salt and pepper, oregano, and chili powder. Stir for 1 minute.

Add cannellini beans to the pot. Gently mash beans with a wooden spoon. This will help thicken everything up.

Add stock and reduce heat to low. Cover and let simmer for 20 minutes. 

After 20 minutes, remove lid and add Greek yogurt.
