Crock Pot Turkey White Bean Chili with Butternut Squash

DSC_0016 9

Warm up with this unique white bean chili! I added in some ingredients I wouldn’t normally add and it turned out well. Also, I highly recommend buying pre-diced butternut squash because it would have been SO much easier and faster. Turkey chili is a great because it is so high in fiber and protein, which will help keep you full longer. One serving of this has close to 300 calories, 8 grams of fiber, and nearly 30 grams of protein.

Ingredients:

  • 1lb lean ground turkey (I used 99% but anything is fine)
  • 3 cans of low-sodium white beans (cannelloni, great northern, etc)
  • 1/2 butternut squash, peeled and cubed
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 small can mild green diced chilis
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 zucchini, diced
  • 1/4 cup green onion, diced
  • 1 cup corn (frozen, canned, or fresh)
  • 2 small mushrooms, diced (optional)
  • 2 tbsp garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • Pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Sauté ground turkey in a pan for 5-10 minutes, until cooked through
  2. Combine 1 can of white beans and the chicken broth in a blender and blend well
  3. Combine all ingredients in crock pot
  4. Cook on high for 2-4 hours

* To cook faster, combine ingredients in a pot and cook on medium/high for 15-20 minutes

Enjoy!
