Reviews for Terrific Turkey Chili
"easy to make and hearty!"
"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."
"Very good recipe for chili...i used ground. Round."
"I used ground beef, added celery, and only used 3oz of paste. This is the best chilli I've ever tasted!"
"I cooked this recipe in the crock pot and it was outstanding."
"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."
"Extremely easy to make. Calorie wise as well. Husband and I thought it was very tasty. Lots of fiber as well!"
"this chili is just delicious! perfect for a cold winter day with a little cheese and some baked tortilla chips. it's a little sweet with 2 tbsp of brown sugar, so i reduce it to 1. i also add a little chopped jalapeno to add a little more spice. yum!"
