"I thought this was a decent base, but will need some tweaking. I only used 1/2 tbsp of chili powder and since I prefer a thicker chili I drained the tomatoes and only used about 1/3 of the can of chicken broth. I think next time I will add in some garlic salt (I didn't taste much garlic) and some other various spices (haven't figured out what yet). Otherwise, a decent, solid chili. We put ours over rice and top with cheddar cheese. Yum!"

"This recipe is so good. I was not able to cook it in the crock pot, but cooked it on top of the stove for about 1 hour instead. It is delicious coming from a not so crazy about turkey/chicken dishes. My man loved it too."

"Love this recipe. Very easy to throw together in the morning before work and come home to the house smelling so good! My husband said it is his favorite chili that I have made, and my 3 year old, who is typically very picky, ate his whole bowl! Definitely a keeper."

"I forgot the diced tomatoes but had sauce so I added that. Maybe less sauce or more chili powder if I do that again but my 10-yr old loved it & my husband and I just spiced it up. Delish, healthy, cheap & easy!!"

"I'm looking for healthier recipes to add to my menu and this one stood out and I had to try it. It is sweeter than my chili recipe but very good. I shared some with my parents and they both enjoyed it too! Dad asked for the recipe! This one is going in the book to make again soon! Next time I would add more pepper and maybe more chili powder, but that's only because of my own taste preference."
