I had a solid few pounds left over so I made one of my favorites. Before reading the recipe, keep in mind, I love garlic and spicy things, so you may
want to cut that a little.
First the ingredients, then instructions.
1 1/2 pound turkey (ground or leftover)
1-2 medium onions chopped
3-6 cloves of garlic minced
2-4 Serrano or jalapeno(calmer) peppers
2 4 ounce cans green chile peppers
1 tablespoon cumin (I add more to taste)
1 tablespoon dried oregano
Ground cayenne to taste
3 cans of white navy beans
4 1/2 cups of chicken broth low sodium
2 cups of montery jack shredded cheese
splash of heavy cream
1/2 can of well balanced ale or lager (optional)
black pepper to taste
small beef bone with marrow (optional, I get mine at the deli for a buck a pound.
I start with a pot with 4 1/2 cups of chicken broth, throw in the optional beef bone to give the base a little body. (boil as long as you want to get
more of the marrow, celery and carrots don't hurt here just to get some extra background flavor). Just make sure to get your liquid level back to
around 4 cups afterwards, you can do so with a little water or more low sodium chicken broth.
Once that gets going, dice your onion, mince your garlic, and mince your Serrano or jalapeno peppers and throw in a pan with a little oil to get c
caramelized. Once you see you're getting close, add all your spices for the last few minutes to toast them up and open up the flavor.... If it gets a
little dry, don't over do the oil, add a little of the broth to sweat them and keep from drying if you're still building the broth.
Make sure to remove bone, any veggies you added to your broth, and get one of the cans of beans, rinse, put in a food processor then add to the broth
to thicken at medium heat. Next add the other two cans, rinsed. Add the onion, garlic, peppers and let everything meld for a few minutes. Give it a
taste after a few minutes and adjust spices as needed.
Finally, add your turkey (brown the ground first if you're going that route.) Bring to medium low heat and add splash of heavy cream and the 2 cups
of cheese. Make sure the heat isn't too high or you'll break the dairy.
I garnish with saltines or tortilla depending on my mood.
