  • In a 5- to 6-quart pot heat butter and oil over medium heat until butter is melted. Add ground turkey, onions, carrots, and garlic. Cook and stir until meat is browned and vegetables are tender, using a wooden spoon to break up meat as it cooks. Stir in crushed tomatoes, diced green chilies, tomato paste, chili powder, Italian seasoning, salt, cumin, crushed red pepper, and black pepper. Add broth, beans, corn, and edamame. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, about 20 minutes until thickened, stirring occasionally. Serve with toppers, if desired.
