1 large onion, chopped

5 cloves garlic, minced

1 lb. ground turkey breast

2 4-oz. cans diced green chiles

1 tbsp. cumin

1 tbsp. dried oregano

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Kosher salt & pepper to taste

1/4 cup cilantro

1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper

2 15-oz. cans cannellini beans, drained and rinsed

1/2 cup fat free 1/2 & 1/2

2 1/2 cups chicken broth (plus more if chili is too thick)

Optional toppings:

Sour cream (FF or reduced if you want lower points)

Shredded reduced fat Monterrey Jack cheese

Scallions, thinly sliced

Lime wedge


In a dutch oven over medium heat, combine the onion and ground turkey and sauté until the onions are tender and turkey is fully cooked (6-8 minutes). Add the garlic and cook another minute or so, until fragrant. Add the green chiles, cumin, oregano, cinnamon, cayenne, and salt & pepper to taste. Cook another 5 minutes or so. 

Add one can of the drained beans and the chicken broth to the pot. Then take the second can of beans and mash them using a food processor or potato masher. Add the mashed beans to the pot, along with the half & half. Stir well and bring to a boil. Then reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for about 15 minutes or until the chili has thickened slightly. Stir in fresh cilantro. 

Serve with a wedge of lime and your preference of toppings (suggestions listed above). Toppings were not included in the calculated Points+ value.
