Jaimee and I met back in 2003 when she started to work for the same company as myself. We became friends very quickly and then sadly J moved to San Francisco – and who wouldn’t!!! I mean its right next to Napa Valley and Sonoma – what else is there? Of course, I did have to make a few trips to see my good friend. It, of course, always involved a trip to either Sonoma or Napa or both!
Anyway, J is now back on Boston soil and is to be my very first “guest blogger” – how exciting.
Over to Jaimee
I was in Trader Joe’s the other day and they were giving out samples of this great chili. I made it and it’s sooooo good! Thought I would pass it along. I’ll warn you it looks a little gross but it’s easy and so yummy!
The Chili itself is very easy to make and took about 15 minutes. If you make it with Trader’s pre-cooked Turkey it would be about 5 minutes – yes that quick!!!!
I made it for my fiancé and sister and they absolutely loved it. I will definitely make it again. I might try a few different versions of it to get it just right.
For my version I used ground turkey and sautéed it with an onion. I have to say that the Trader Joe’s version did use their own pre-cooked turkey and it turns into what looks like pulled turkey and I actually thought it tasted better.
White Turkey Chili
2 jars of Trader Joe’s (or any other brand) Salsa Verde (the all green salsa)
2 cans of Cannellini beans
1 package of Trader Joe’s simply roasted sliced turkey breast
(I cooked 1 package of ground turkey in a pan with a chopped white onion) then added it to everything else.
Another option was to put a few chicken breasts in the crock pot for a few hours and then it will shred & add everything to that!
1. Chop turkey
2. Add 2 jars of Salsa Verde & beans (well rinsed)
3. Simmer for 30- 40 mins. on low
4. Serve with crushed tortilla chips & shredded cheese on top (the chips make it!)
Simple and very easy!!! ENJOY. J
