Cooking Light SEPTEMBER 2010

  • Yield: 6 servings (serving size: about 1 cup chili and 1 lime wedge)
  • Total:20 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup prechopped red onion
  • 1/3 cup chopped seeded poblano pepper (about 1)
  • 1 teaspoon bottled minced garlic
  • 1 1/4 pounds ground turkey
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 (19-ounce) can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 (14-ounce) can fat-free, lower-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 6 lime wedges

Preparation

1. Heat a large saucepan over medium heat. Add first 4 ingredients; cook for 6 minutes or until turkey is done, stirring frequently to crumble. Stir in chili powder and next 8 ingredients (through broth); bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes. Stir in cilantro. Serve with lime wedges.

Note:

Tip: To save time, chop off the top of a washed cilantro bunch rather than picking individual leaves. The thin stems toward the top are very tender.
