Chase’s Chilli

So I wanted to find a chilli recipe that was a little lighter and didn’t require beef. So I looked and found a white bean turkey chilli recipe and made it my own… so here is Chases Chilli

Other tips and tricks :

You can add in cumin, tamarack, or use regular paprika.

You can use any type of cheese, I use colby monterey jack.

You can use ground chicken if you want instead of turkey.

Instead of water you can add vegetable or chicken stock (adjust your spices accordingly). Add the liquid as needed to keep the ingredients covered.
