White Bean-Turkey Meatball Chili

White Bean-Turkey Meatball Chili

Ground turkey is a good choice for meatballs with good flavor and texture but less fat than those made with ground beef and/or pork. A touch of sugar in the chili brings out the flavor of the vegetables.

Tips  

Expert Tips

A Dutch oven is a heavyweight cooking pot with a lid for slow simmering. The standard size is 5 quarts. Dutch ovens can be cast iron, aluminum alloy or stainless steel, and some have a nonstick finish. Choose a Dutch oven with a heavy bottom, a tight-fitting cover and, if possible, overproof handles. You'll find it's the pot you reach for when preparing stews, chilies, sauces and more.
