White Turkey Chili

Looking for ideas to use that leftover turkey? White Chili has become a post-Thanksgiving tradition in my household.

1/2 red pepper, diced
1/2 yellow pepper, diced
1 small onion, diced
2 carrots, diced
2 stalks of celery, diced
3 cloves of garlic
1 - 2 jalapenos, minced (optional, if you don't want it spicy)
1 tablespoon of veggie oil
2 lbs leftover turkey, shredded
10 cups chicken broth
1 can garbanzo beans
1 can pinto beans
1 can cannellini beans
1 can great Northern beans
2 tablespoons cumin
1 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon oregano
Salt and pepper to taste

1 bunch of cilantro, minced
Fat free sour cream or plain yogurt
Crispy tortilla strips

1. Sautee veggies until onions are translucent, add turkey and cook for a minute. Deglaze pan with chicken broth
2. Add beans and spices. Simmer until thickened.
3. Garnish with cilantro, sour cream and tortilla strips

Easy peasy! Those turkey leftovers will disappear! Enjoy :)
