Slow Cooker White Chili with Ground Turkey

Slow Cooker White Chili with Ground Turkey is creamy, comforting, and filling. This easy chili combines ground turkey, onions, garlic, peppers, cannellini beans, and corn in a creamy base. You’ll love every spoonful!

Yield: 8 servings 1x
Prep: 15 minutesCook: 3 hours 15 minutesTotal: 3 hours 30 minutes


2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

2 pounds ground turkey

3 cups white onion diced, about a one-pound large onion

23 seeded and diced jalapenos, based on your heat tolerance

1 1/2 tablespoons fresh garlic, minced

1 19-ounce can cannellini beans with their liquid (if your can is smaller or larger than the one called for here, it will not affect the finished chili)

1 cup turkey stock

1 cup frozen corn kernels

1 7-ounce can mild diced green chilies

1/2 cup fresh cilantro chopped, plus more for garnish

2 teaspoons kosher salt

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

2 teaspoons ground cumin

2 teaspoons ground coriander

2 teaspoons chili powder

2 teaspoons dry oregano

4 ounces corn chips, plus more for garnish (We chose a brand that had a hint of lime flavor)

1 cup sour cream

For Garnish:

A dash or two of hot sauce, if you like a spicier chili

8 ounces Monterey Jack cheese, shredded for garnish

Fresh cut limes, for garnish


  1. Brown ground turkey in a large wide skillet in the olive oil. Once cooked, pour into slow cooker.
  2. Add the onions, jalapenos, garlic, cannellini beans with their liquid, turkey stock, corn kernels, green chilies, chopped cilantro, salt, pepper, cumin, coriander, chili powder and oregano.
  3. Cover and set slow cooker to high and cook three hours.
  4. While chili is cooking, place the four ounces of corn chips into a small food processor and process to a fine crumb or powder. You will end up with about one cup of the ground corn chips.
  5. After three hours of cooking, stir in the corn chip powder, cover and cook for ten more minutes.
  6. Add sour cream and taste. Adjust seasonings or add hot sauce to your liking.
  7. Serve with shredded Monterey Jack Cheese, cut limes, additional chopped cilantro and corn chips on the side.
