White and Red Rotel Turkey (or Chicken) Chili

Blog Update: As I scroll through old posts or notice something I really enjoyed I'm adding a "darn good" label to the recipe. This will be a collection of recipes I highly recommend. And wow, this White and Red Rotel Turkey (or Chicken) Chili is on the list! Super simple, comes together quickly, it's ubber creamy and very nicely flavored. This is smoother and milder than our family's regular robust red kidney bean chili so in my book, that makes it a totally different meal. I can't wait for the boys to try this one:@)

My changes:
  • I added a drained can of Rotel (I like the Walmart brand) instead of canned chiles. Use regular or mild-you know your crowd:@)
  • I used half and half. 
  • Can use some/all great northern beans.
  • Didn't have cilantro, sprinkled in some dried parsley.
  • *Condensed soup substitute = Tblsp flour + 1 C milk + 1 chicken bouillon cube

  1. This sounds wonderful Lynn! I may try to make it tonight :-) I found you a cute Easter project and will email it now. Have a great day!

  2. That looks so delicious. I love white chili. I also like that you are adding Darn Good labels... that'll make it easier to find the 'tried and true recipes".

  3. This sounds really good, I love the addition of Rotel, and the darn good labels is a great idea, thanks Lynn!

  4. Sounds darn good Lynn ;) We love white beans and I’m always looking for a different chili or soup recipe to try!

  5. I'd love to try this when I get home, Lynn. I have a white chili recipe, but this is different and sounds Darn Good!

  6. This sounds wonderful! The weather is turning again, so I need to check if I have a can of Rotel in my pantry. Your chili would hit the spot.

  7. I love anything with Rotel - sounds delish!

  8. It is cold outside and I really want this for dinner!

  9. This does sound DARN GOOD! Thanks for the recipe, Lynn :)


Thank you for stopping by-enjoy your day!
