Directions

  1. For beans: Rinse black and navy beans separately. In a large saucepan, combine black beans and 4 cups water. In another large saucepan, combine navy beans and 4 cups water. Bring both to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer for 2 minutes. Remove saucepans from heat. Cover; let stand for 1 hour.
  2. In the same saucepan, combine black beans and 4 cups fresh water. In the other saucepan, combine navy beans and 4 cups fresh water. Bring both to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 1 to 1-1/2 hours or until beans are very tender. Drain black and navy beans; set aside.
  3. In a 5- to 6-quart Dutch oven, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion, sweet pepper, celery, undrained green chiles, jalapeno pepper, garlic and oregano and cook until onion is tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in flour, chili powder, coriander, cumin, salt and sugar. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly.
  4. Add chicken broth, undrained tomatoes, crushed tomatoes and ketchup. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. In a food processor, cover and process 2 cups of the corn until pureed. Add pureed corn, the remaining 1/2 cup whole corn, the drained black and navy beans and turkey. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Makes 8 to 10 1-1/2- to 1-3/4-cup main-dish servings

Tip

  • *Handling Hot Peppers: Because jalapeno peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with jalapenos as much as possible. When working with them, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the jalapenos, wash your hands well with soap and water.
