Delicious, low-fat, versatile. Can be prepared as a vegetarian dish. Dress with condiments if desired, depending upon your blood type: cheese, sour cream, chips, black olives, green onion, lime juice, cilantro, avocado or chopped tomato.
How to make it:
- 1 cup chopped onions
- 1 teaspoon garlic (or 3-4 cloves, minced)
- 1 can chopped green chilies (4 ounces)
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- 1 teaspoon oregano
- 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 cup vegetable broth (chicken is fine, too)
- 4 cups of black beans (2 cups dried, rehydrated) or 2 cans, drained [or use a BTD compliant substitute]
- 2 cups diced cooked, turkey
Of course chicken may be used in place of turkey. For a spicier dish, substitute jalapeno for green chilies, depending upon taste. White beans (cannellini) can be substituted for black beans-then it's called 'White Chicken/Turkey Chili'
- Saute onion and garlic with spices.
- Add broth, half of beans and turkey.
- Mash remaining beans (easier if you put them through the blender with a little liquid).
- Add beans to pot.
- Bring to boil.
- Simmer 20-25 minutes
I like to make it in the morning and keep it warm in the crock pot for one of those crazy nights when our busy family is going in different directions.
