Healthy White Bean Turkey Chili

“I decided to get back on Weight Watchers and was googling recipes. I found one for white bean turkey chili, but decided to put my own spin on it. It is so good, hearty, and has a nice creamy and smoky taste. I only used one teaspoon of red pepper flakes because I was going to be serving it to my 2.5 year old. I was shocked she actually had like 4 hearty bites and was dipping her spoon in the liquid and slurping it up. This is a huge feat for my very picky eater. My hubby said it was a keeper. Also, I used two pounds regular ground turkey and one pound extra lean ground turkey. This recipe can also be OAMC and you could probably get 2 or 3 dinners out of it, depending on your family size. You could also use your slow cooker, just brown the turkey and your spices in a skillet, then transfer the rest of the ingredients into the slowcooker for the exception of the half and half. I would add that 30 minutes before serving. Enjoy! If you are counting points, there is 12 servings. We had hearty helpings, so I would say 6 to 8 servings if you are not restricting your portions.”
