READER'S COMMENT:
"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...

delicious

Surprisingly easy to make. And tastes very good. Let it set a day (if you can wait) to let the flavors grow stronger.

The key is finding the right green salsa for your taste levels, but that's easy enough to play around with

easy, tasty

Hearty

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
