We are so pleased to share with you a recipe from one of our patients! She created recipe after being seen at the ELMM Clinic and learning about leading a healthier life through her food choices. After some tweaking, she developed the white turkey chili recipe below, and we thank her for so kindly sharing it with us!
You will note that this recipe incorporates a decent amount of fat, which will help to keep you full while not loading you down. You will find that unlike chili recipes that contain a large amount of carbohydrates in the form of beans, tomatoes, and/or added brown sugar or molasses, this white chili recipe focuses on quality fat, protein, and vegetables. It also comes just in time as we run out of recipes to keep us warm inside while it remains chilly outside. Nothing like chili on a chilly day!
We invite you to take this base recipe and run with it. Try changing up the spices or using lean beef or chicken in place of the turkey. If you are lactose intolerant, swap out the cream cheese for full fat coconut milk or yogurt other nondairy milk product.
