Reviews for Family-Pleasing Turkey Chili
"This recipe is fantastic!!!! The name of the recipe says it all...definitely a family pleasing favorite!I do not add the corn & sometimes I add 1 to 3 tablespoons of McCormick's chili powder, depending of how spicy we want it. And I do different variations of beans. Pinto, white with kidney. Or Kidney, white & pinto or black beans.My son who has always been a picky eater loves this chili!! In addition to the cheese, sour cream, cilantro, & onions, we add chili cheese Fritos. It is great without the toppings as well along with homemade cornbread. Yummy good!!!"
"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 is my families favorite chili recipe. My husband loves this makes it at least twice a month."

"Very delicious & very easy to make"
"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."
"I've been looking for a good chili using ground turkey and this one was quite good."

"I have already made this chili several times since printing the recipe. We love it, it's perfect!!!!"
"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 loved this recipe. I used a red pepper instead of green. So easy to throw together!"
"This is a delicious, healthy and easy recipe. I will make this again!"
"excellent chilie. I never eat leftovers, bu I ate this three days in a row for lunch. was disapointed when I ran out. A week later I was craving this.. Will make double batch and freeze in single servings."
"I thought this was very good. I really enjoyed it."
"My husband and I loved this recipe, my children on the other hand didnt think it was very good."
"Made this for a potluck at work and every enjoyed."
"Great and easy recipe. I too left out the green pepper and used red instead."
"I made this for my Dad who was recently diagnosed w/ diabetes and he's having trouble changing his diet. He really liked this recipe. Everyone was very surprised! I did change just a few things: used red instead of green pepper, used fire roasted tomatoes and organic hot beans."
"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."
