This is my go-to chili recipe. I can't count how many times I've made this! The only things I do is... 1) no green chilis (bad experience as a kid...); and 2) water instead of tomato juice, because I haven't been able to find cans of tomato juice and don't want to buy a large bottle. I love how thick and hearty this recipe is. I'm someone who can't tolerate a lot of spiciness, and I find that this recipe balances right on the edge of my spice tolerance.

This is the tastiest turkey chili I have ever made. I followed the recipe exactly and found it to be very good for most tastes. I prefer just a little more heat so added a shake or two of cayenne. It is thick and hearty. My husband even loved it and that is saying a lot as he really prefers "meat and potatoes" type of meals.

I used ground beef, added celery, and only used 3oz of paste. This is the best chilli I've ever tasted!

Delicious! It's a thick chili, so if you like it more like soup than a stew, add more liquid. I didn't have onion on hand so I added 1 TBS of onion powder. I used 1 TBS of agave nectar instead of sugar, 1/4 tsp cayenne instead of black pepper, and only 1 tsp of chili powder - for a more mild spicy flavor.
