White Bean Chili Verde

Winter is finally here, and its the perfect time for soul warming comfort food, hot chocolate, and soups. Apart from the warmth a soup provides I also like a kick for extra heat so what better then chili to satisfy. White bean chili verde is the perfect candidate and apart from delicious its also healthy. I hope you enjoy it…


3 cans white beans (drained)
3 cups roughly chopped kale
1lb ground turkey meat
1/4 cup roughly chopped cilantro
1 roasted poblano pepper seeded and deveined
1/2 cup salsa verde (store bought or home made)
2 boxes of vegetable or chicken stock
2 minced garlic cloves
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1 tablespoon olive oil

In a sauce pan add 1 tablespoon of olive oil, heat up and add garlic and ground turkey with salt and pepper to taste sauté till turkey is thoroughly cooked. Once turkey is done in a pot add turkey, cilantro and kale cook for about 3 minutes then add stock, beans, onion powder, cumin,thyme and salsa verde cook until kale is nice and tender, take a cup of broth from chili and roasted poblano pepper and blend for about 3 minutes, add mixture to pot,taste for salt add as needed, if chili is not brothy enough for you you can add some water and cook for another 10 minutes.
