My initial idea to use the remaining leftover Thanksgiving turkey was a white chili, but then I realized I didn't actually have any chilies, or peppers for that matter. So I'll call this a "stew" instead. Whatever it is, it was GOOD! I knew I'd be the only one eating it so I decided to spice it up a bit. Topped with just a bit of colby/jack cheese and some fresh cilantro, it was a warm bowl of goodness on a cold rainy day.
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 3 leeks chopped
- 2 cups of your favorite broth (I used stock made from the turkey!)
- 8 oz of leftover turkey meat
- 1 can of white (Northern) beans drained and rinsed
- 2 tsp dried cumin
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- ½ tsp red pepper (less or more to taste)
- ¼ tsp ground cloves
- ½ tbsp green chili sauce
Heat the oil and sauté the leeks until softened and just browning. Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Lower to a simmer and cook for at least 20 minutes, allowing all the flavors to merge and deepen.
Top with a bit of grated cheese and some fresh or dried cilantro.
I love 1 pot dishes! Pretty easy, no? 🙂
