  • Crock Pot


  • 2 lbs ground turkey
  • 1 yellow onion chopped
  • 1 bell pepper chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 3 jalapeno peppers finely chopped (optional)
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 2 cans cannellini beans rinsed
  • 1 can large butter beans rinsed
  • 2 cans corn drained
  • 32 oz chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup Shredded mozzarella cheese for topping (optional)


  • Place the turkey in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook, stirring, until browned. Drain grease.
  • Add the onions, bell peppers, garlic and jalapeno peppers (if using). Cook for 3 to 5 minutes. Add the chili powder, cayenne pepper (if using), oregano, cumin, salt and pepper. Mix well.
  • Transfer turkey mixture to a crock pot. Add cannellini beans, butter beans, corn and chicken broth. Cook on low heat for 6 hours. Serve warm, topped with shredded mozzarella cheese.


  • To boost flavor in this recipe, replace ground turkey with pork.
  • If unable to find butter beans, use another can of cannellini beans.
  • Delicious topping options: shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream, sliced green onions, saltine crackers or pickled jalapeno peppers.
  • Omit jalapeno peppers and cayenne pepper for a mild dinner.
Instead of transferring turkey mixture to a slow cooker, add to a large heavy saucepan or Dutch oven. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 2-3 hours, stirring occasionally to avoid burning.
