This recipe is a good idea, but too bland, too tasteless. I suggest you increase the spices and consider adding tomatoes with jalapenos.

Both of my kids loved this chili. DH said it was a little bland, and I kind of agreed with him. I will make it again, but I will triple the spices next time. Our family loves bold flavors. It is a little thicker than regular chili, but an excellent way to use up left over turkey.

I was very hesitant to add the pumpkin but this was just the missing ingredient in ALL chilis! Fantastic! Just make sure you don't use the canned pumpkin pie. Use the pure pumpkin. I used 2 lbs ground turkey because that is what I had in the freezer. Just amazing! Thank you!

Was very good... and not too difficult to toss together. I used ground turkey instead of cubed and added a little extra chili powder and an extra can of beans. Next time I think I will add in some corn (a suggestion from hubby). Will be making again!

Good Autumn recipe - used butternut squash in stead of pumpkin and it makes lots! Freezes well for quick meals on hand

This isn't my favorite chili recipe, but it was pretty good. DH and I liked it but the kids would not eat it.
