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 too never post comments or reviews but had to share my enthusiasm for this recipe. It is simply delicious!!!! Definitely best chili I've ever tasted but also one of the best meals I've ever had! I make it with ground lean turkey, to make it even healthier and I love love the flavor. The green enchilada sauce definitely complements the ground turkey. Instead of putting a dallop of sour cream, I put greek plain yogurt instead which makes it yet another step healthier. During the fall/winter months, I make this at the beginning of the week and divide it into Tupperware for lunches at work. I always look forward to my lunch, unlike other days when I pack sandwiches or chicken dishes that dry out after microwaving.

I have never commented on any recipe before and this is one of my FAVORITE recipes! My husband really likes it and he actually doesn't care for traditional chili but loves the spices, etc. in this one. It's a keeper and I will continue to make it for years to come!!

Not bad...it was pretty spicy, but that was the goal. I added some cilantro into the mix and ate it with flour tortillas. Best thing is I have enough for the rest of the week! I will probably make this again sometime.

Wow! So good. Since I'm a single gal I kept the amounts of the recipe the same but substituted half a lb of ground turkey, perfect amount to bring lunch to work for a few days. I also added diced tomatoes and a can of gold & white corn. I used Herdez salsa verde, my grocery store didn't carry too many options, but this worked out well. Healthy, delicious and super easy!
