Mushroom Salsa Chili Recipe

Green, sweet red and yellow peppers give this hearty chili a splash of color. I often fix it for my grandsons. Because they don't like spicy chili, I use mild salsa, but try it with a hotter variety if you prefer. —Richard Rundels, Waverly, Ohio

MY REVIEW

I used ground turkey instead of pork sausage and added only one can of beans, but otherwise I followed the recipe faithfully. It is delicious! Will definitely make this again!

Excellent!! Very easy to make & a pleasent

change from the usual flavors like chili powder. My husband enjoyed it too & he likes spicy foods.

MY REVIEW

This is more of a light "summer" chili. I added more peppers, doubled the spices, added some black pepper for a little warmth and an extra can of beans and we loved it. Oh, I also used fresh mushrooms.

I also used fresh mushrooms, and was pleasantly surprised to find this is a step or two up from your typical chili.
