You’ve likely spent D A Y S preparing + cooking your Thanksgiving feast so the last thing you want to do is spend another day in the kitchen, fussing over another meal. This delicious Turkey + White Bean Chili takes less than an hour to prepare, so make a batch + eat it today or tuck it away in the fridge to enjoy over the next few days as a quick + easy meal.

And, who can resist a golden, cheesy slice of sourdough, as a compliment to the Turkey and White Bean Chili, and a means to soak up every last delicious drop? Not me!

For this recipe, I start with diced pancetta and sauté it in olive oil with red onion and minced garlic.

Next, add the BUSH’S White Chili Beans in a Mild Chili Sauce, stock and diced tomatoes. Mix well and simmer for 30 minutes.

Add the shredded turkey and cabbage then season to taste with sea salt and cracked pepper. You shouldn’t need to add much sea salt as the pancetta and stock tend to be salty. Simmer the chili for another 10 minutes. I highly recommend serving this meal with a thick slice of toasted sourdough, topped with melted sharp cheddar, which I prepare while the chili is simmering away on the stovetop. 

Ladle the chili into bowls + garnish with chopped parsley + serve with toasty sourdough slices. A generous bowl of this simple + satisfying Turkey + White Bean Chili with Toasty Sourdough is the perfect way to use those Thanksgiving leftovers + chase away Autumn’s chill!
