"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...

This recipe had more meat, beans, and veggies than sauce, so it was really satisfying. Easy to adjust the "kick" by varying the spice amounts.

Easy to prepare, lots of flavor

Love this!

I love this recipe! It's cheap, easy and healthy. It was way too spicy though so I'll be reducing the amount of spices next time. This will be a recurring meal for me.

Filling, makes a lot
Not really a chili verde, but quick and easy!

This recipe came together so fast and was so easy to prepare. Although it's not a real chili verde (it's not even green, by the time you're done), it really is a flavorful, hearty chili. Great week night meal!

Flavorful, quick, super easy
Quick Dinner

One of my family favorites. It's been added to my rotation of recipes. I usually serve it with salad and gluten free corn bread muffins.

Tip: Double the recipe because it will go fast, but better yet makes for great leftovers.

Easy to make and tastes great
