Leftover Turkey Chili

Serves 8

1 Tablespoon canola oil
2 onions, diced
6 cloves garlic, chopped
2 jalapeños, seeded and chopped
2 ½ Tablespoons ground cumin (I “toasted” cumin seeds in a small skillet until they were fragrant then ground them up with a mortar and pestle)
4 Tablespoons chili powder
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 heaping teaspoon dried oregano
1 ½ pounds leftover turkey, cut into pieces (for nutritional analysis purposes, I used 1 pound white meat and ½ pound dark meat)
4 cups turkey stock you or someone in your family made from the carcass or chicken broth
1 28 ounce can diced tomatoes
¼ cup farro or pearl barley
2 14 –15 ounce cans cannelini beans, rinsed and drained or 3 cups dried white beans soaked over night and drained.
½ cup packed fresh cilantro, chopped
Salt to taste

Heat the oil in large soup pot over a low flame. Add the onions, garlic, and jalapeños then cook them until the onions soften, about 10 minutes. Stir in the cumin, cayenne pepper, chili powder, and oregano. Stir in the leftover turkey (you could also use ground turkey and sauté it so it is no longer pink). Add the stock or broth, tomatoes, farro, and beans. Bring to a boil then simmer uncovered for about an hour. Stir in the chopped cilantro near the end of the cooking time. Season with salt to taste. Leftovers made with original leftovers can be frozen.
