  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 ½ pound skinless, boneless turkey breast
  • 2 medium yellow onions, diced

  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 3 ears freshly shucked yellow corn
  • 1 cup cannellini beans

1. Rinse and cover the beans with cold water and then place them in the refrigerator overnight. Remove the beans from the refrigerator and place in a medium saucepot.

4. Add the seasoned turkey, garlic and the onions and sauté for 5-6 minutes or until completely white. Add 2 cups of chicken broth, the chilies and spices and let simmer for 10 minutes.

5. Add the corn and half of the cannellini beans. Take the remainder of the cannellini beans and the remainder of the chicken broth and puree together in a blender, add to the chili mixture.

6. Bring chili to a simmer and add the lime juice and season with salt and pepper to taste. Simmer for 10 minutes.

7. Divide the chili among bowls and garnish with the cilantro and tortilla chips.
