This Green Turkey Chili Soup is a healthy soup recipes that the whole family will enjoy. It’s easy to make, and extremely flavorful. If you like your food on the spicier side, and you think you can handle the heat, add a couple of extra chilies. Canned beans aren’t recommended, as many cans contain BPA. Plus, by slowly cooking the beans, you can add texture and thickness to the soup. Soaking dried beans overnight and then slowly cooking them with the rest of the chili also makes the legumes easier to digest.

Green Turkey Chili Soup
- 1 pound ground turkey breast
- 1/2 yellow onion chopped
- 2 garlic cloves chopped
- 3 Anaheim chiles medium
- 2 Poblano peppers
- 1 quart chicken broth low sodium
- 2 cups water
- 1 pound white navy beans soaked overnight then drained and rinsed
- 1 1/2 tablespoons cumin
- 1/2 tablespoon dried oregano
- 1 1/2 tablespoon sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
- Brown the ground turkey with the onion and garlic cloves over medium heat until it is cooked through.
- Place the chiles under a broiler for 5-7 minutes, turning occasionally until all of the sides are blackened.
- Remove from the oven and immediately place them in a heavy-duty Ziploc bag. Seal it and let them steam for 10 minutes.
- Remove the chilies, then carefully remove the skins. It should be very easy to detach the skin after steaming them.
- Remove the seeds and stems, then chop into small pieces.
- Place the turkey mixture, chilies, chicken broth, water, beans, and spices in a stockpot and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, and cook for 2 hours until the beans are soft.
- Alternatively, you can put it all in a crockpot and cook on low for 6-8 hours. This is actually my favorite method because I think the chili gets thicker, plus it’s just so much easier to forget about it for the day!
