"This delicious red chili has the right amount of kick and will warm you right up with ground turkey and veggies! Perfect with a beer, during a football game, on a cold winter night, or on top of a hot dog. This recipe is sure to please! Can be made on the stove top or slow cooker. Serve topped with fresh cilantro, green onion, shredded Cheddar cheese, and light sour cream on top with cornbread on the side.

Great recipe. I like my chili somewhat spicy and hearty and using less peppers did the job for me. I followed the previous reviewer's suggestions and it came out great! Thanks for the easy and tasty recipe!
good, i've had better
My husband and I enjoy our chili on the spicy side. We had guests over who don't enjoy spicy food, so I omitted the adobe peppers and only did two jalapenos. This was wonderful. I can't wait to make it with all of the peppers the recipe calls for!
Excellent chili. It is easy to make and the amount of hot spices is easily adapted.
I only used 3 jalapeno peppers but it was plenty spicy! I also used a local Irish Red Ale, which was great. I look forward to trying a porter in this. I used Bush's BBQ baked beans instead of chili beans. Overall this recipe is a winner, it really jazzed up ground turkey meat!
Good chili-I used the crockpot method and it turned it well.
I made this according to the recipe. My husband loved it, but I think this recipe has made me decide that I do not like chipotle peppers in my chili. I love them in other recipes, just a personal preference to be aware of before diving in!
Really excellent flavor - won "people's choice" award at my office chili cookoff. Tweaks I made included: using Young's Chocolate Stout for the beer, adding 3 chicken japaleno and cheddar sausages (removed from casing; crumbled), 3 jalapenos instead of 4, 1 can of beans instead of 2 (which I think would have been way too soupy), and a cinnamon stick for the first few hours in the slow cooker.
