Reviews for Spicy Turkey Chili
"I love spicy food and I particularly liked that this recipe called for ground turkey instead of beef. I used both instead of beer. I've never cooked with beer and now I'm wondering if it gives dishes a distinct taste. If so, I might try it with beer next time. Great Recipe!"
"My family loved the chili. I did not add the jalapeno pepper and still found it spicy enough. In addition, I did not add the cinnamon. I will definitely make this again!"
"I added sliced herbed/garlic chicken sausage to the ground turkey; used 16 oz. diced organic tomatoes pureed with the tomato sauce. I skipped the broth and the cinnamon and used 1/8 teaspoon Dave's Insanity Hot Sauce instead of the jalape?o. Heated in a crockpot for our fellowship. It was scarfed!"
"will for sure be repeating this recipe, again,and again.It is a winner. Edna..Waterford, MI."
