"This recipe is quick and tasty!! I did season the ground meat (turkey) and added sour cream on top. The next time I make this I would like to use taco season and sauté hot peppers with my onion and bell pepper."

"This was a hearty, homey meal and it was a cinch to make since I already had all the ingredients on hand. I used beanless chili since we have a bean-hater in the family and only half a pound of ground beef because I needed the other half for another recipe. Next time, I plan to top it off with some chopped tomato and sliced black olives and green onions. This would be a great way to use up leftover chili!"
