Excellent recipe--but I don't know that I would've given it 5 stars without the addition of 1 can each of black and garbanzo beans. It needed a little more "body" and the beans were just the thing. Probably a can of corn in place of one of the beans would've worked well also. The spices were perfect--however, I always like a touch of sweetness to tomato based recipes, so I added 1/4 cup of brown sugar....YUM! I would highly recommend this chili recipe---and for anyone that never usually tries ground turkey in place of ground beef, believe me, you'll never miss it.
This wasn't very good. The texture of it killed it in my opinion, and it is hard to pass it off as chili without the beans. It was more of a thick soup/almost spaghetti sauce conistency. Not good. I made it and had 3 big tupperware bowls left overm that no one would eat :(
Winner of the office Chili Cook-off. I add a couple garlic cloves and lots of Chipolte Tabasco Saaas. Toss in some Chili Powder (1 tsp+) if you are feeling crazy. Once the meat is browned, toss everything in the slow cooker for 4 hrs on High. Go for the gold!
Awesome chili!! Had never made chili before. I added one can of black beans and one can of kidney beans, rinsed and drained. This came out excellent and is filling!! Thank you so much! Great for weight watchers!!
I was nervous about adding taco seasoning to a chili recipe. I like to add the spices myself. But I went with the recipe and it was surprisingly fantastic. My only change, based on other reviews, was to add a can of black beans, kidney beans and cannellini beans to the chili; the chili wasn't soupy and the three bean colors gave texture and color.
I thought this was wonderful. I have an aversion to zucchini so I left that out and added a can of kidney beans when the chili was almost done. That's just personal preference. I also like a little more spice so I added a teaspoon of chili powder. Thanks!
This is an unusual recipe that really packs a "zing" to it! I was hesitant to try a recipe using ground turkey, but I certainly can't taste the difference. A real winner & one I'll make again, for sure!
What a great way to warm up on a cold night! We like our chili with beans, so I added a can of kidney and pinto beans. We also like our chili very spicy, so I added chili powder and a minced jalapeno. The salsa I used was spicy, too. I really liked the zucchini in this! I browned the turkey then threw everything into the slow cooker for 5 hours on high. I added some cornstarch after a few hours because the chili was too runny for me. Next time I will add more vegetables, because I like it really chunky.
