Turkey Chili Recipe

This recipe is very similar to the White Chili with Chicken I posted earlier.  You can make this recipe with either turkey or chicken, depending on your preference.   Personally, I don’t like any kind of chili beans, kidney beans, pinto beans or great northern beans.  However, I have had a long standing love of butter beans since I was a little girl.  Instead of my having to go through and pick out the beans in every spoonful, I substituted the great northern beans in this recipe with large white butter beans.  I have to say, I loved the way it turned out!!  So much easier to eat, when I don’t have to worry about picking out all the beans.
