TURKEY AND CORN CHILI WITH SWEET WHITE MISO

MAKES 8 SERVINGS

2 tablespoons canola oil

1 large yellow onion, diced

1 to 2 jalapeno chiles, finely chopped (for less heat, discard the inner ribs and seeds)

4 cloves garlic, minced

1 teaspoon ground cumin

2 1/2 pounds (40 ounces) lean ground turkey

1 (15-ounce) can white kidney or navy beans, drained

1 quart low-sodium chicken broth

1/2 cup sweet white miso

6 ears corn, husks and silk removed (or 3 cups frozen corn kernels, thawed)

Salt and ground black pepper

2 limes, cut into wedges, to serve

In a large saucepan over medium-high, heat the oil. Add the onion, chiles, garlic and cumin, then saute until the onion is just starting to brown, about 8 minutes. Add the turkey and saute, breaking up any large clumps, until browned, about 10 to 12 minutes. Add the kidney beans, chicken broth and miso. Bring to a simmer, stirring often to dissolve the miso, then cook for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, one at a time stand each ear of corn on its wide end. Use a serrated knife to saw down the length of the cob to remove the corn kernels. Add the corn to the chili, then return to a simmer and cook for another 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Serve with lime wedges and cilantro.
