Turkey White Bean Chili

Turkey White Bean Chili for those long winter nights! Find the recipe on Shutterbean.com

Our kitchen is done and I can’t wait to show you! Here’s the BEFORE if you don’t know what I’m talking about. Yesterday I spent all day putting things away. It almost felt like we moved and we were unpacking. I traveled to the grocery store to fill up our cabinets with essentials for the week, hoping to escape the wrath of the Patriots game. Ugh. But I came home with the ingredients to make this Turkey White Bean Chili and somehow it lessened the blow.

  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • 1 jalapeño, thinly sliced, seeds removed

    Yum! We had chili here yesterday too while watching that Patriots game (sorry about that). You’ve inspired me to up my topping game! (Ours looked a bit naked in comparison:). Congrats on your kitchen!

  • \( ̄︶ ̄)/

    mmm, just want a sip, plz.. :p

    Hi Tracy! I don’t see the link for the “Before” of your kitchen where I think it should be. I look forward to seeing it (well, again, I might have seen it before in another post), and the finished product!

    Also, I wanted to just say how much I enjoy your blog. I read it a lot and I have used so many recipes from here (hello donuts, boozy treats and lots o’ others) and I realized I never took the time to let you know how awesome it is, from one (and I’m sure many others’) perspective.

    Thanks for sharing your design style (which I love–I’m totally taking your guest room color) and all the wonderful trips, recipes, and photos with us.

    There aren’t many blogs that I put in my RSS feed to read every day, but yours is one of them.

    I’m trying to make sure I tell people when I really appreciate them, and I just wanted you to know this southern girl (Tennessee!) transplanted to the midwest (Indianapolis) is reading and really enjoying your page, so thanks again for sharing.

      Oh gosh. You know what I did? I opened up another tab for it to copy the link and then got sucked into the internet. I was probably looking at containers on amazon. Ha!

      I’ll fix it. Thank you!

      • Melody

        It’s all good! I found the ‘before’ post too (I knew it was there somewhere!) :)
        I know how the internet can draw you in. This week for me:
        “Ooh! Look! I need a desk lamp! *click* Do I like Tiffany lamps? Maybe! Glass is cool. What’s this? *click* This looks very Frank Llloyd Wright-ish. Love this. Wait, Here’s another….*click*” Ad nauseum. :)

        • Tracy

          EXACTLY. This times 1000000. It takes me SOOOO long to make my I Love Lists Fridays because I get SUCKED IN 😉 Glad you know what’s up!

  • Melody

    (And this chili looks amazing. Corn chips are one of my favorite chili accompaniments. Can’t wait to try this.)

  • Stephanie | Mrs Tea & Mr Coffee

    I love white bean chili. This looks so comforting and like it will instantly get you nice and warm. Can’t wait to try this :)

  • Libby

    I saw the pic of this on Instagram when I was dreaming up what we should have for dinner, tonight and I had to go search through my bloglovin’ feed to find this recipe ASAP!
    I make an okay Chili but I never use a recipe. I’m working on following more recipes, lately, because otherwise my food tends to all end up tasting the same. :)
    Can’t wait to see the new kitchen!!!

  • Maggie Hanson

    Yum! I’m going to try this vegetarian style with veggie broth and more beans I think. Love your spice mix, love your toppings and love your pics (as always)!

  • Gaby Dalkin

    Ah, I can’t WAIT to see your kitchen after photos! In the meantime, I’ll be making this for dinner this week for sure!

  • Lori

    I love the photo of all the ingredients and the close-up of the spices. Love the font for labeling, too. This chili looks delicious!

  • Rebeca

    Oh, Tracy, I made this yesterday and it was SO GOOD. Knowing I have the leftovers waiting for me at home is brightening this gloomy day. Thank you for making life more delicious!
    Also, so looking forward to seeing the kitchen!

  • Amy

    We made this last night for dinner, It perfect to come home to the pot simmering away after and icy dog walk!

  • Bri

    With the blizzard on the east coast, supplies were limited so I used ground chicken thighs. Best chili ever. We LOVED it. Adding it to our rotation for sure!

  • Amy

    I made this chili for dinner tonight and my husband and I both loved it! I subbed ground chicken for the turkey and added some chipotle powder. We are looking forward to leftovers for lunch tomorrow!

    Thank you for the amazing recipes, inspiring/informative lifestyle posts, and incredible photography–you are my favourite part of the internet, Tracy!

  • Ginger

    Totally gonna make this…but I think I might try it with Italian Sausage because I am a glutton for it! Thanks for the recipe, Tracy! :)

  • Maggie Hanson

    Made it yesterday with white beans, black beans, and pintos and veggie stock and it was delicious! I love the spice mix!

  • Mary

    Hi I Made this chili last night and the flavor is great and everything, BUT there was a lot of liquid even after simmering a bit longer than called for. Is that correct the 4 cups of chicken broth? I think when I make it again I will add just two cups of broth.

    Thank you!

    • Tracy

      Good to know. I think that some of my beans came out of the can mashed so that might have accounted for a thicker soup on my end. I’ll adjust the recipe accordingly. Thanks for the feedback!

      • Mary

        Okay, I had made this on Sunday and just had a bowl for lunch today, which is Tuesday. It is no longer watery! It thickened up in the fridge, I suppose. But it is very delicious and thanks for the recipe!
