Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound dried navy beans, picked over
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cups chopped yellow onion
  • 2 tablespoons minced jalapeno
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 2 1/2 pounds ground turkey
  • 2 tablespoons Emeril's Southwest Essence, recipe follows
  • 1 2/3 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano, crumbled
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 3 tablespoons cornmeal
  • 3 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 (10-ounce) cans Ro'tel Diced Tomatoes and Green Chiles (original), with juice
  • 2 (4-ounce) cans diced green chiles, with juice
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh cilantro stems
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • Sour cream, for serving
  • Grated Cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese, for serving
  • Chopped green onions, for serving
  • For the Southwest Essence:
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • Cooking Directions

    In a large kettle, soak beans in cold water to cover by 2 inches overnight. Drain beans in a colander and return to kettle with enough water to cover by 2 inches. Cook beans at a bare simmer until just tender, about 1 hour, and drain in a colander.

    In a skillet, heat the oil and saut?? the onion and jalapeno until soft and beginning to caramelize, 4 minutes. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add the ground turkey, Southwest Essence, chili powder, salt, cumin, oregano, and bay leaf and cook, stirring occasionally, until turkey is browned and cooked through, 6 minutes. Add the cornmeal and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add the chicken broth, canned tomatoes, canned chiles, and cilantro stems and stir to combine. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer, and cook, uncovered, for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally. After it has cooked for 30 minutes, add the cooked beans. Add the heavy cream and cilantro leaves and cook, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes longer.

    Serve the chili in deep bowls, garnished with dollops of sour cream, grated Cheddar cheese, and green onions to taste.

    For the Southwest Essence:

    Combine all ingredients thoroughly.
