If you’re looking for a comforting, warming soup that packs a bit of spice, you can’t miss this white turkey chili!
A few weeks back, our family had a delicious white turkey chili in one of our meal delivery boxes.
We have been working very hard on eating out as little as possible this year, and Home Chef allows us to create delicious, chef-designed recipes at home.
I asked the company if I could share this white turkey chili recipe with you all, and I was delighted when they said “yes”!
Please note that this chili definitely leans on the spicy side. If you or your children prefer milder foods, I would recommend subbing in a milder pepper than the poblano.
Without further ado, here’s the full recipe:
White Turkey Chili
- 1⅛ Pounds Ground Turkey
- 1½ Cups Cannellini Beans
- 4 Ounces Aged White Cheddar Cheese
- 1 Bunch Kale
- 1 Lime
- 1 Poblano Pepper
- 1 Red Onion
- 1 Bunch Cilantro
- 1 Tbsp. olive oil
- 6 Tablespoons Homemade Taco Seasoning (or your own spice blend)
- ¼ Cup Sour Cream
- salt and pepper, to taste
- Blue Corn Tortilla Chips
- Preheat the oven to 450°F.
- Wash and dry the fresh produce.
- Drain and rinse the beans.
- Remove and discard the kale stems; roughly chop the leaves.
- Quarter the lime.
- Peel and small dice the onion.
- Grate the cheese.
- Thinly slice the cilantro leaves and stems.
- Remove and discard the stem, ribs and seeds of the pepper; small dice. Thoroughly wash your hands and work surface immediately after handling the poblano pepper!
- In a large pot, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the onion and poblano pepper; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 5 minutes, or until softened.
- Add the ground turkey to the pot; season with salt and pepper. Cook, frequently breaking the meat apart with a spoon, 4 to 6 minutes, or until browned and just cooked through.
- Add the spice blend; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until fragrant.
- Add the beans, kale and 3½ cups of water to the pot; season with salt and pepper. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to medium-high. Simmer, stirring occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes, or until the liquid is slightly thickened. Turn off the heat.
- Stir in the juice of all 4 lime wedges; season with salt and pepper to taste.
Cooking Time: 20-30 minutes
Serves 4–although we made this stretch between 6 since my children are still young!
Home Chef offers four types of plans–the 2-Person Plan, the 4-Person Plan, the 6-Person Plan, or the 8-Person Plan. We are a family of 6 at this updated writing (March 2020), but since our children are still young (11, 9, 7, and 3), we have found that the 4-person plan works great for us.

Here’s how to get this deal:
- Click here, and the $35 off will automatically be applied to your order. Make sure the green bar at the top of your screen says, “Voucher code successfully applied for $35 off your first order.”
- Step 2: Enter email address. They will send you order updates, menu updates, and future promotions. You can unsubscribe at any time.

If you pick 2 portions, shipping is free with 3 or more meals per week. Otherwise, shipping is $10. (Note: At this update that I’m writing in 2020, our family is now 6 people, but a meal box for 4 fed us for one meal.)
- Step 4: Indicate food preferences. You can select if you are interested in vegetarian, low-calorie, or low-carb. You can also list foods to avoid. Each week’s menu features 18+ different meal options, but your choices will be more limited if you indicate different food preferences in this section.
- Step 5: Enter shipping information, and pick your first delivery date. You will be charged for this delivery upon checkout. Your preferred weekly delivery day can be changed anytime. You don’t need to be home when your meals are delivered.
- Step 6: Enter payment information. With the $35 off promotion, the cheapest option is 2 meals per week with 2 portions per meal for just $14.80 shipped. I selected 4 portions 2 times a week for $44.60. March 2020 Update: This fed our family of 6 (kids are 11, 9, 7, and 3) for two dinners. The meal for 4 is for four adults, so that box should be fine if you are ordering for 2 adults and 3-4 children. I would go up to the next size box if you have more than 4 young children. You will now be charged for your first delivery. Yes, this happens before you can pick your meals, which isn’t preferable, but Home Chef does offer enough meal options to satisfy pretty much any tastes. For all future deliveries, you will be charged the Friday before your order arrives. You can choose to skip a future delivery by the Friday before the delivery date at 1:00 p.m. EST.

As well, they offer meat-only boxes.
