  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat, and pan-fry the turkey breast until the meat is no longer pink, about 10 minutes per side. Transfer the turkey breast into a bowl to cool; shred it with 2 forks. Set the turkey meat aside. In the same skillet, cook the onions and garlic over medium heat until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes; scrape the onions and garlic, along with any drippings, into the bowl with the turkey.
  2. Place 1 can of cannellini beans, the hominy, and the chicken broth into a slow cooker. With an immersion blender, blend the mixture until smooth. Transfer the shredded turkey, onions, garlic, 3 more cans of cannellini beans, the cilantro, cumin, and Cajun seasoning into the slow cooker, and stir to combine. Wearing gloves, cut off the serrano chile stems, split the chiles, and scrape the seeds and membranes from 2 of the chiles with a spoon. Mince all 3 chiles. For milder flavor, seed and remove membranes from all the chiles. Mix the serrano chiles into the soup.
  3. Cover the cooker, and cook on Low setting for 4 to 6 hours or High setting for 2 to 3 hours.

I made this with Ground Turkey and it was amazing! I left out the hot chili's because I can't eat hot spicy food, and it was still great! I think it's the hominy and cilantro!

Make sure that you like Hominy before you make this because it has a very strong flavor. I would have used about a third of it had I known that it would be such a dominate flavor. It tasted li...

Slow Cooker Turkey & White Bean Chili Haiku: "Took some time to prep. (Way more than 20 minutes.) But well worth the wait!" I halved the recipe, only having a 14.5 oz. can hominy, but it was def...

I made this with 2 lbs ground turkey and more serrano pepper and seasonings. Just mushed the hominy and one can beans with a fork instead of all that trouble with the immersion blender. It came ...

This was very spicy. I will make it again but change/reduce the seasonings.

On a rainy day this hit the spot with corn bread. Couldn't find turkey breast so used ground turkey breast meat and it worked out very well. Shared with family neighbors on this rainy day who lo...

I love this recipe, of course with a few changes. I use chicken istead of turkey, and i poach it instead of panfrying it. I also only use one onion instead of two. With those few changes its ...

I removed the cilantro and substituted Great Northern beans for cannellinis - next time I might add more serranos and some chipotle or chili powder to add more kick. I'd also reduce the amount ...
