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...

I love when healthy recipes are delicious, and this one was! Very easy and quick. Under 40 minutes from start to finish including a quick healthy cornbread from scratch. The nutritional analysis states a serving has 516 mg sodium, but if sodium intake isn't an issue for you, I would suggest a bit of salt to season the ground beef.

I thought this dish sounded good when I read the recipe, and liking chili I decided to give it a try. All of the ingredients were easy to find at the local Wal Mart and it was just as easy to prepare. The only struggle I had was preparing the garlic. I made two pots. One using salsa verde, and the other using a medium chunky salsa. Both were good, but the one with the salsa verde was easily the better of the two. It has a more "seasoned" flavor. Oh, if you don't like "hot" food, don't let the use of cayenne scare you. The spicy taste is just right.
