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!"
"Made it just as directed. My family loves spicy food and they loved this chili! Used the beer and everyone loved the taste. I have to admit I did not eat the chili as I am a vegetarian but it smelled awesome cooking. This recipe is a keeper and healthy!"
"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."
