White Bean and Ground Turkey Slow Cooker Chipotle Chili

Posted by Judy Taylor on


I am still on my Weight Watchers Program, and I have to tell you.....I am LOVING it!  Weight Watchers has some great recipes on line that are absolutely delicious.  This slightly spiced white chili is the perfect freezer staple to have on hand for too-busy-to-cook-nights.  And it is ZERO points.




cooking spray

uncooked 99% fat-free ground turkey breast (2 pounds)

1 large chopped uncooked onion

2 medium garlic  clove(s), chopped

32 ounces REDUCED SODIUM chicken broth

30 ounces canned white beans (drained & rinsed)

¼ cup(s), fresh, coarsely chopped cilantro (plus extra for garnish)

3 Tbsp fresh lime juice

1 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp dried oregano

1 tsp chili powder

chipotle variet (optional)



  1. Coat a large skillet with cooking spray. Cook turkey, onion and garlic over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until turkey is browned, about 10 minutes.
  2. Add turkey mixture and remaining ingredients to a 3 1/2 quart or larger slow cooker. Cover and cook on low heat setting for at least 4 hours. Yields about 1 cup per serving.


If the chili is too thick after it’s been frozen and then defrosted, add extra broth and then reheat to achieve desired consistency.For additional color, top with extra freshly chopped cilantro just before serving.  You can also use cooked shredded turkey or chicken instead of ground turkey.
Also, be sure to use REDUCED SODIUM chicken broth or it will be too saltyl
