Quick White Bean Turkey Chili

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 30 min.


2 servings

My husband came home from a sales trip to the East Coast raving about white bean chili. This is our version.


  • 1/2 pound turkey breast tenderloin
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 to 1-1/2 teaspoons butter
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 3/4 cup canned great northern beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup canned diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 2 tablespoons salsa
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Shredded cheddar cheese or sour cream, optional


  1. Cut turkey tenderloin lengthwise into quarters. In a skillet, cook the turkey, onion and garlic in butter until turkey is no longer pink and vegetables are crisp-tender. Remove turkey and let stand until cool enough to handle. Cut into cubes. Transfer vegetables to a saucepan. Add the turkey, broth, beans, tomatoes, salsa, parsley and cayenne. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 12-16 minutes or until slightly thickened. Top each serving with cheese or sour cream if desired.
