This recipe serves: 6  
3 rehydrated ancho chili peppers, stemmed and seeded
2 cloves garlic
1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups chopped tomatoes, fresh or canned
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound ground turkey
1 onion, chopped
3 cups low-sodium turkey or chicken broth
2 ears corn, husked
1 16-ounce can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed

Cooking Instructions
