White chili with turkey and cannellini beans, from Andrea Meyers

White chili with turkey and cannellini beans, from Andrea Meyers (on Soup Chick).

When it comes to chili, I'm no purist. Chili can have beans, or not. It can have beef, or not. As long as it's spicy, I'm okay with it. "White" chili, made without red meat or red beans, really appeals to me; the milder flavor of the turkey really lets the sultry, musky chili flavors shine through. This quick-and-easy white chili with turkey and cannellini beans, from Andrea Meyers, gets a bit of smoke from chipotle chili powder and cumin. Use leftover turkey or rotisserie turkey breast from the market. Like all chilis, you can make this white chili ahead and freeze it.

Just wanted to pop in and say how much I enjoy your recipes. I've subscribed via rss for quite some time and always look forward to your posts hitting my reader.

I'm a Texan and agree w/ you about the chili, but don't let some of my fellow Texans hear you say that about the beans. Me? I don't like beans in my chili, but do like chili mixed in w/ my beans, go figger. Just yesterday I saw a long thread in one of my favorite Texas recipe sites about chili and I was surprised at the "chili snobs" posting about what constitutes chili and what doesn't. As I said, I'm from Texas and wouldn't have any qualms about tellin' 'em to stick it in their ear, that I'll fix chili how I want and if they don't wanna eat it, then they can go hungry.

I'm with you, Lydia. I like chili many different ways. Thanks for mentioning my chili!

Mike, thanks for your vote of support! I know Texans can be very particular about chili (and who can blame them?), but I'm open to trying all sorts of chili variations.

Andrea, as long as chili has some smoky heat, I'm good with it!

I love white bean chili too! Maybe better than the types with meat or red beans.
