"I never knew what I was missing until my mother-in-law made this! Everyone begged her for the recipe. A nice and easy way to feed a crowd. Thanks to my mother-in-law this has become a favorite dish! Can be frozen very well and doubled for a larger crowd. Top with your favorite shredded cheese."

This was delicious and EASY. I used 1.3 lbs of ground turkey. I, too, increased the crushed tomatoes to 28 oz., added 1/2 T. cumin and some jalepeno and chipotle peppers. I cooked the onion, garlic and turkey in a saute pan, then transferred the mixture to a crockpot (so I didn't have to tend to it) and added the other ingredients. It cooked on high for an hour and a half and was ready to eat.
Decent chili. Not the best I've had, but I was able to use ingrediants I had on hand. I used twice the tomatoes and only 2 cans of black beans. I also spiced up the turkey with a teaspoon of Cumin. I agree that it could have used more seasoning. Using a dollop of light sour cream and light cheddar cheese tops the dish off well.
This recipe is a definte 5 stars!! I followed the other reviewers suggestions and used a 28 ounce can of tomatos,1.5 lbs of turkey and 1/2 a teaspoon of cumin. It was excellent but not spicy enough for my liking, so I added another 1/2 teaspoon of cumin and a tablespoon of crused red pepper. It was perfect!!! This is something I will make again and again!!
This was the best new recipe I have tried in a long time. If you own a can opener you can make this dish. I read the other reviews and took what sounded good from those. I used 28 oz of tomatoes, 2 cans black beans, 1 can pinto beans with jalapenos, and 1 can of corn. I also added 1 tbl cumin and 1 tsp red pepper flakes. This mixture and amount of spice was perfect for us. My husband and I both LOVED this dish. He ranted for days about how good it was. I served it with sweet cornbread, and topped it with a little shredded cheese and sour cream .... YUMMMO!!
Awesome recipe... the kids actually asked for leftovers for lunch the next day... high praise from my family! Extra note: second time I made it, I put it in the crockpot on low for 4 hours - much better!
This is a great base recipe for our taste. As any good cook knows, you take a basic recipe and adapt it to the seasonings you like or love. Ground turkey is bland so I also added the cumin--about 2 tablespoons as we LOVE the flavor, and used ground oregano--about 2 teaspoons to a pound of raw turkey. If you use ground turkey breast it may be necessary to add 1-2 T. oil to brown it if to dry. I love to simmer meat and seasonings in a bit of fatless chicken broth until tender then add the rest and simmer for 10+ minutes. Enjoy!
Following other the reviewers' suggestion, I used almost an entire 28 oz can of crushed tomatoes (not 14 oz) and it worked great! I also added a can of corn and garnished the finished product with grated cheddar cheese. Also, I used 1.5 lbs. ground turkey and found that this was the exact right amount of meat. This chili was a big hit at my last dinner party!
This is a nice change from regular chili. I used a can of Rotel tomatoes along with a can of diced tomatoes with green chilis to add a little kick. It seemed to take care of the problem of the recipe not having enough spices (that others have complained about). I also added cumin because I love it and I used ground beef only because that's what I had. I also used balsamic vinegar in place of the wine because that's also what I had. All in all, I loved it and so did my family. Give it a try:)
