Made this for Recipe Group [I tweaked this all over the place, and probably shouldn't have, since it was for recipe group, but I did . . .] . . . I just was not in a meat mood - and definitely not feeling ground meat, for some reason. SO, I bought a package of turkey breast tenderloins. I diced them up, and browned half [~10 oz...?] in olive oil in my 5 qt pot. I used extra celery and onion. [Did not measure.] I could not find the diced tomatoes, so I bought sliced - but had to dice them myself, ultimately - the slices were too big for my taste. Because I was going short on the meat, I added a second can of black beans, and a can of pintos. I brought the turkey, sweets, and tomatoes to a boil while I diced the other veggies, added the spices, beans and corn, brought back to a boil, covered, and lowered to a simmer, for about an hour. The chili is GOOD! BUT, I will probably leave out the cinnamon next time. I know it's not a sweet spice - but I associate it with sweets - and while the taste is not bothering me, the scent is off-putting . . . By the way, I left out the water. As I read the reviews, I kept thinking that my chili did not come out thin or runny, but just realized now, that I did not even see water in the ingredient list [and so, left it out]. I will do it the same way next time. My biggest tweak was probably making this a one-pot meal and doing the whole thing on the stovetop . . . I shared this with co-workers and my mom, and everyone who tried it, loved it =D
