Hasty Tasty White Bean Chili

Looking for an easy post-holiday meal using leftover turkey or chicken? My friend Linda Young introduced me to a recipe on the can of Bush’s White Chili Beans called White Chicken Chili. I made a few changes and liked the result so here’s how I made a hastytasty chili from leftover turkey.

Thanks to Bush’s Beans for the original recipe and delicious White Chili Beans.


Hasty Tasty White Bean Chili

Serves 6


  • 2 cups diced cooked turkey
  • One yellow onion, diced
  • 2 tsp. Canola, safflower, or any neutral tasting oil
  • 3 cans Bush’s White Chili Beans
  • 1 can Rotel diced tomatoes and green chilies
  • 1 pint turkey or chicken broth (can, carton, or homemade)
  • 1 can condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • Salt to taste
  • (Optional) fresh cilantro
  • (Optional) grated cheese and/or sour cream for toppings


  1. In a 4 quart pan, sauté the onions in the oil over medium heat.
  2. While onions sauté, purée the contents of one of the cans of Bush’s White Chili Beans.
  3. Add broth to the sautéed onions and deglaze the pot.
  4. Add puréed beans, Rotel, cream of chicken soup, 2 cans beans, and the cooked turkey.
  5. Cover and simmer over low heat 15 minutes.
  6. Add garlic powder and salt.
  7. Serve topped with your choice of toppings. I like fresh chopped cilantro and tortilla chips.

This recipe is easily adapted to slow cooking or pressure cooking.
