This lighter take on chili is made without tomatoes, leaving room for fiber-rich greens. We’ve kept the spices mild to please many palates, but you can easily add more chile powder if you prefer a spicier dish – here at the CE office, we love this meal smothered in hot sauce!
4 green onions, chopped, light and dark green parts divided
1 stalk celery, chopped
1 small jalapeño chile pepper, seeded and minced
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1 15-oz BPA-free can unsalted cannellini or great northern beans, drained and rinsed (TRY: Eden Organic Great Northern Beans)
In a Dutch oven on medium-high, heat 1/2 tsp oil. Add turkey, chile powder, cumin, oregano and salt and cook, breaking up turkey with a spoon, until no longer pink, 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer turkey mixture to a plate and set aside.
In same Dutch oven still on medium-high, heat remaining 1½ tsp oil. Add yellow onion, kale, light parts of green onion, celery, jalapeño and garlic and cook, stirring, until softened, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in turkey mixture, broth and beans. Bring to a gentle simmer and cook, stirring, until heated through and slightly thickened, 1 to 2 minutes.
Divide among bowls and sprinkle with dark green parts of green onion.
Russet potatoes have a dry, starchy flesh that becomes wonderfully fluffy when baked, making them the ideal candidate for these richly spiced twice-baked potatoes. Serrano chiles can be quite hot, so reduce the amount used (or substitute with milder jalapeño) if you prefer this dish to be milder.
Apple cider and Dijon mustard give this chicken dish the ultimate sweet-and-savory flavor, while a colorful mix of kale, carrots and parsnips makes it extra-hearty and nutritious. To save money, buy skin-on chicken thighs and simply remove the skin yourself.
