Quick White Turkey Chili

Lauri Pobanz combines white corn, great northern beans and leftover turkey to prepare this steaming chili. "I appreciate how fast it is to make- and that my husband and our four children like it," notes the Lincoln, Nebraska cook. "I often bake a pan of corn bread to go with it."

    This is a really good white chili with a lot of flavor. It makes a nice small batch so you're not stuck with leftovers for a week.

    This is a great way to use up those turkey leftovers from Thanksgiving. We have made it several times. My ten-year old picky eater loves it, too.
