"This recipe was great and so quick. I used 94% lean ground turkey, added some corn and also added a little tomato paste to thicken it up and give it some color. I only used an 8 oz jar of green taco sauce because I didn't realize it...

Amazing, Amazing, Amazing..I followed the recipe ALMOST exactly, i substituted ground turkey instead and i added as a small can of baked beans. It was a fantastic mix and the perfect amount of spicy. I cannot say enough great things about this recipe.


Very thick and filling. I felt that one can of beans left the chili rather sparse (I'm a big bean fan), so I put in two cans of beans. I tried it both as plain chili, and wrapped in whole grain soft shell tortillas. I personally prefer it served in tortillas. Very delicious!!


Wonderful! I made it with no meat and three cans of beans. I also added some frozen white corn and a can of tomatoes. I will make this many, many times!
