This fragrant "white" chili is an unusual, delicious alternative to traditional tomato-based chilies. Serve with lime wedges and a dollop of sour cream or a sprinkling of cheese.


  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped onion
  • Two 4-ounce cans chopped green chilies
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Three 15-ounce cans Great Northern beans, rinsed
  • 4 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 4 cups diced cooked skinless turkey or chicken
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar


Heat the oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the onion; cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the chilies, oregano, cumin and cayenne. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Stir in the beans and broth; bring to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes. Add the turkey (or chicken) and vinegar; cook for 5 minutes more. Serve.
