I have no idea where this recipe came from. I’ve been tearing recipes out of magazines for years. This one doesn’t have a magazine name on the bottom of the page. I’m thinking maybe a Fitness or Good Housekeeping – it wasn’t a “cooking” magazine I don’t think. I even Googled to no avail. It’s pretty healthy though at only 292 calories per serving! (If you have issues seeing the ingredients – click to enlarge.)
I didn’t have to substitute much here – the only thing I did differently was use a 24-oz jar of the northern beans – they’re my favorite and instead of water/bouillion – I just used chicken broth.
Next time I need to see if I can find some medium green chiles – I always get these mild ones and they don’t have any kick to them!
Brown the ground turkey, onion & garlic, then add the broth, beans, chiles, cumin and pepper – very easy! Let simmer for 20 minutes or so…
I’m still working on my presentation efforts…and the camera doesn’t always help! The flash was too bright so we had to go natural kitchen lighting. I plopped some sour cream on top and had a few chips on the side.
Why Should You Make It: I loved it! There were 4 big servings and Larry – who isn’t a big bean fan – even liked it. I’ve brought the 2 leftover servings for lunch this week – so that’s always a plus in my book. It makes extra but not too much. I would add some hot sauce or spicier chiles the next time around as well as maybe try this with shredded chicken. All in all – very tasty comfort food! Enjoy!
