Christmas Recipe Week - White Turkey Chili

I hope everyone is having a lovely holiday. I posted this on my Garden blog after Thanksgiving, so this is a re-post.

I experimented with the left over turkey on Thanksgiving. 100% Success! I love when that happens. Especially when it's low calorie. Score even more, I'm sharing, I hope you enjoy. If you don't like a kick you may need to tone down the chili powder and jalapeno's. Here you go:

White Turkey Chili 17 - one cup servings
1 1lb. bag Great Northern Beans
2 Quarts Fat-Free Half & Half
1 lb Shredded Turkey
1 4oz Can Diced Jalapeno
2 Fresh Jalapeno Chopped (Seeds optional -Seeds make it hotter)
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup red bell pepper chopped
1 cup green bell pepper chopped
1 Tbsp chopped garlic
2/3 cup chopped celery
1 Tbsp Ground Pepper
1 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
1 tsp Tarragon
1 tsp Sage
1 tsp Cumin
1 tsp chili Powder (optional- or to taste)

Put all in the crock pot and slow cook. High 6 -7 hours, low 9 to 10 hours. Serve with rolls and to compliment the spice a dry white Riesling is a nice addition.

This is a keeper, anyway my husband said he wants be to make it again. I repeat... If you don't like hot/spicy foods you probably want to leave the chili powder out and do not use the seeds in the jalapeno's.

Enjoy!
