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...

LOVED THIS!!!! Substituted ground turkey for the beef, little extra chili powder and cayenne...I am in cajun country and we like spice. We ate it on tortilla chips, would be great on flour or corn tortillas too!

Super easy recipe that has a great kick to it! Even using a salsa verde that was lower in Sodium than many of the others I found at the store, it was still a bit on the salty side for my personal tastes. I toned it down with some frozen corn and a chopped tomato. Tasted great. Next time I think I'll try adding some cooked elbow noodles. I may not be able to legitimately call it "chili" after that, but I think that'll better suit the needs of my more "delicate" palate. : )

Substituted soy "meat" crumbles for the ground beef, since I'm a vegetarian, and it was delish.
My husband LOVED it, which surprised me since he doesn't like verde sauce of any kind.
Definitely will make again.
