My husband and I love this recipe, we top it with a little reduced fat Mexican cheese and avocado, and add ghost pepper salsa for extra heat. It's so fast and easy, is perfect for a weeknight dinner, and is tasty left over as well.

I loved the sweet and spiciness the green salsa gave this dish. We added some of the Trader Joe's tomato-less corn salsa for a little extra texture and flavor. AMAZING!! I will be making this again and again.
This is a great recipe. It's so easy to change and make it your own. For example, I changed the amount of garlic to 3 cloves. I made it ahead of time and the flavors melded together beautifully. Did not have to spend time cooking when my guests arrived. Used Pace medium Salsa which is a perfect replacement for canned tomatoes that have a lot of sugar. Great for diabetics.
This was amazing! I've always used my mom's recipe but wanted to find one a bit thinner and with more diversity in flavor. This chili was perfect! I did make a few changes: ground turkey instead of beef, added salt & pepper (to taste) and added about 2 tbsp of Ketchup to add some sweetness. Perfect!
Green salsa made for a nice change from traditional chilli. Used 2 cans of kidney beans and added small can of organic tomato paste to thicken. (great idea shared by another member). Topped with a dollop of low-fat sour cream and shredded Monterey. Served with whole wheat saltine crackers
