Creamy Wild Turkey White Chili

Wild Turkey Leg White Chili

Flavorful White Chili made with hearty beans, tender wild turkey meat, and a rich and creamy broth. This is a great way to use turkey legs but turkey breasts work great too. Cook the meat in the crockpot while you’re at work and then make a quick soup with the meat once you get home.
