Recipe by Enallage
"I like chili, but I'm not a fan of heat for heat's sake. I wanted something that would warm me up but not be overwhelmingly hot, and this was the result. My husband says that this would also make a good sloppy joe (with beans) mix."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

This recipe exactly what it says Mild Mannered. I did my chili on the stove top and omitted the tomato paste and added onions. Mom ate it as is and loved it. Hubby and I like heat so we heated ours up after cooking. Next time I will put sweet bell pepper in the mix and serve it over rice.
Very good Chili, I only made a couple changes. I added 1/4 pound sweet sausage to the ground turkey in the browning process and added a can of corn with the beans.
I've made a lot of chili recipes, and thought this one was pretty nice. I made it exactly as written. It was a little interesting that no onions (or even onion powder) was in it, as most chilis have it - I didn't miss them, though. It was also a bit unusual, and nice, that two kinds of beans were used. I happen to like blazing-hot food, and this was definitely mild-mannered. It might have just been my crock-pot (mine is very large), but I found that the chili didn't get all that hot after cooking for 3 hours on Low. The chili came out nice and thick, and was perhaps a bit too heavy on the tomato flavor. I didn't really mind these last points, but, noting that three kinds of tomatoes were used here, I might have cut back, or even omitted, the tomato paste, for example.
Overall, I liked this - it lasted me for two nights, totaling four big bowlfuls. It might not be the best chili ever, but it's still worth recommending.
