White Bean Turkey Green Chili

A warm and spicy way to get rid of leftover turkey.
I always buy a turkey that is way to big for the amount of people I am feeding. This year, 4 people and an 11.5 pound turkey. So I am planning for too many leftovers where just sandwiches will get too boring. This chili is a great way to use up the turkey in a flavorful way, so you don't feel like you are having Thanksgiving again. Also it doesn't take a lot of time to just throw together, so after cooking all day you can have an easy meal in the next day or so after. 

White Bean Turkey Green Chili
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 (14.5 ounce) can chicken broth
1 jar (16 ounce or so) salsa verde
1 (7 ounce) can diced green chiles
1/2 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander seed
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 cup frozen corn
1 pound or whatever you want to throw in turkey, cooked and shredded 
1 (15 ounce) can white beans
1 pinch salt and black pepper to taste

In a large pan, heat oil over medium heat. Cook onion and garlic until soft. 
Stir in broth, salsa, chilies, and spices. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 10 minutes. Add corn, turkey, and beans; simmer at least 10 minutes (I let simmer all afternoon). Season with salt and pepper to taste.
