Turkey Chili with Adzuki Beans
Turkey Chili with Adzuki Beans is a great way to use leftover turkey from Thanksgiving or Christmas.
I use Campbell’s No Salt Added Chicken Broth
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
sour cream or plain yogourt
Soak adzuki beans in 4 cups of filtered water overnight.
Rinse adzuki beans and place in 4 cups of chicken broth in saucepan. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to low and simmer for 30 minutes.
Add cooked turkey, diced tomatoes, tomato paste, chili powder, paprika and cumin to adzuki beans and continue to simmer for 30 minutes.
Saute onion and celery in 2 Tablespoons of olive oil in separate saucepan until translucent. Add minced garlic and saute for 1 minute.
Add onion-celery-garlic mixture to turkey and adzuki beans and simmer, uncovered for 20-30 minutes or until mixture thickens. Taste and add more of the spices if necessary.
Serve turkey chili in bowls and add a dollop of sour cream or yogourt if desired, topped with fresh chives.
