Alea’s White Chili with Ground Turkey

Posted By Alea On October 25, 2011 @ 5:30 pm In Beans,Casein Free,Dairy Free,Gluten Free,Recipes,Turkey | 4 Comments

Cooler evenings call for spicy dinners to warm us up. I like to add rice to my chili to make it extra hearty. And I often include corn in my white chili because the sweetness of the corn provides a nice contrast to the spicy peppers. Adding rice and corn are fairly inexpensive ways to stretch chili a little farther. This recipe makes enough for two dinners for my family. I freeze the leftovers and then have a ready-made meal on a busy night.

I usually use shredded chicken in white chili, but when I scored a package of extra lean ground turkey for .99 cents, I decided that I needed to change things up a bit.

I make a point of checking the meat mark downs and organic produce markdowns EVERY time I visit a grocery store. I have found that the best time to find good deals is after 6:00 p.m. because the manager marks items down right before his shift ends or first thing in the morning. I never know what I am going to find, but if you want to find great sales you have to look for them [5].
