Turkey White Bean Chili

I know it is a little early for leftover recipes but isn't that why you cooked all day for? Ok, maybe that isn't the only reason you cooked for that unGodly amount of hours but honestly if it wasn't for the amazing midnight Turkey sandwich (come one, you know you guilty too...I bake bacon and hide it in the frig just for this reason) and those leftovers, I might reconsider all the dysfunctional family that is allowed to grace the table each year.

This might be one of my favorite chilis. Maybe because it has Hotlinks in it. Hot links are a comfort food. There is a POST about explaining all the details. Even the brats have decided that they hold some cosmic fortune. They heal broken relationships and wipe tears. That's my story and I am sticking to it. But you should love this Chili because you can throw it together in minutes...ya pretty much. And when you have cooked for days and dealt with crazy relatives, there is something to be said about that.

Turkey White Bean Chili (Thanksgiving Leftover Recipe)
4 cans of white kidney beans or Northern Beans (drained and rinsed)
1 onion diced
4 Hotlinks sliced in chunks
3 cups of leftover Turkey in chunks
1 cup-2 cups of turkey stock
1 Taco Seasoning OR the following spices
1 tsp cayenne
1 tsp oregano (Italian seasoning works great too)
1 tsp smoked paprika (this is must! I use it in a huge amt of my recipes)
1 tsp crushed red pepper
1 tsp parsley (all I had was dried)
Salt and pepper

This is too simple...really

Take the hotlinks and saute with the onions. You will not need any additional oil.
Add all the beans. Make sure you drain and rinse them.
Add all the spices or the taco seasoning packet and stock. It will simmer down so make sure you add enough liquid.
Let simmer for 20 minutes
Serve with Parmesan Corn Bread and a side salad
