MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 22, 2014

Followed the recipe to the letter, I did add one chopped jalapeno (we like it hot / spicy). It didn't taste bad, just wasn't a "wow" for us. We tend to like more of a tomato base. Coffee & wine had an interesting flavor, again, not bad, just not for our taste buds.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 21, 2014

Four star instead of five because this is way too hot for my family, although I halved the amount of chili powder... could be that I used chipotle chili powder instead? So, to cut the heat added 1 Tbl. of honey. Personally, found this to be a very nice blend of seasonings!! Since I didn't have yellow pepper, added chopped green pepper and red pepper. Added two chopped fresh tomatoes- just love the flavor fresh tomatoes add! And reduced to one can of tomatoes & one can of tomato paste. Added one can of corn and one can of pinto beans! Left out the coffee as we are not coffee lovers. Kept 3/4 c of red wine. Topped with green onion and sour cream, grated cheddar jack. So yummy! Definitely added this to my family recipes. It is much more flavorful than other turkey chili recipes! Next try I'm sure this will be 5-star chili!
