White Chili

This is a great chili recipe that we have loved as a family.  I make it often and it is a huge hit with my family and friends. 

White Chili (Katie’s version)

1 tbsp olive oil
1 small onion chopped
1 Green Bell Pepper chopped
1 lb. Ground Turkey
1 lb. Ground Beef
2 tsp Lemon Pepper seasoning
½ tbsp ground Cumin
1 tsp Garlic Powder
2 14.5 oz cans of Northern Beans
1 14.5 oz can of White Beans
1 7 oz can of chopped mild green chilies
1 16 oz bag of frozen white corn
¼ cup Lime juice (plus some to taste)
Salt and pepper to taste
Monterrey Jack cheese, shredded
Tortilla Chips (I like the Tostitos Lime chips)
Salsa Verde

In a soup pot, saute onion and green pepper until tender in olive oil. Add and brown ground turkey and beef with onions. Season with next 3 ingredients. Once meat is cooked until there is no pink, add the beans with juice, chilies and corn. Bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and add lime juice. If consistency is too thick, add water to desired consistency. Simmer for 5 minutes. Add salt, pepper or lime juice to taste before serving. To serve, place about 1 tablespoon each of crushed tortilla chips and cheese in each bowl; ladle chili over cheese. Serve with Salsa, additional chips and cheese.
