If you make this exactly as it is in the recipe it will be very spicy! I used a t. of chili powder, a t. of red pepper flakes, and no green chili peppers, and it was still pretty spicy. (I guess that would depend on how hot your salsa is too.) This recipe was SOOOO good though, it's nice that you can just change it to your liking if it is too spicy! Next time I will do what I did this time, but just leave out the red pepper flakes and I think that will do it. Thanks for the great recipe!
I didn't have some key ingredients to make our usual chili, so I tried this one. I put it in the crockpot and the only thing I did differently was omit the chili flakes because many reviews stated it was too spicy. I didn't think it was spicy at all, so I ended up adding in the chili flakes after tasting it. I thought it was pretty bland and also too sweet! My husband will eat it because he will eat almost anything, but I won't be making this again.**I changed my rating from a 2 to a 1. My husband heated up a bowl when he got home and eventhough I said he will eat almost anything, he couldn't even eat the bowl he made. He thought it was way too sweet and I ended up dumping the rest!
My husband and I really enjoyed this chili. It has a nice smoky flavor thanks to the barbeque sauce and the chipotles. (I didn't have chipotle barbeques sauce so I used regular bbq and a tablespoon of chopped chopotle peppers.) I entered it into Weight Watchers to check the points...only 4 points per serving! It's very filling and well worth the many ingredients!
This is amazing. Couldn't even wait for it to cook an hour! Used Jack Daniels Spicy Original BBQ sauce, MILD salsa, and fresh cilantro. Did not use red pepper flakes, green chiles or corn and only 1/2 c green pepper and it was just the way we like it - a little hot and spicy but not too. Will use again and again.
Really very good recipe
Fabulous, full-flavored, low-cal chili! My husband said this is the best chili I have ever made. Definitely a keeper!
What a terrific low-fat, low-cal recipe! This is really good stuff, and yes, it does have a firey finish. I made in the slow cooker by browning the turkey, garlic, onion, and peppers, and then just placed everything in the slow cooker for about 10 hours. I tasted after about 5 hours, a tad on the sweet side for me, so I added a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and an extra pinch of salt. This smelled so good cooking! Thanks for an easy and delicious recipe, Kate. The only thing missing were the extra calories!
Fantastic recipe!! I used Sweet Baby Ray's Sweet and Spicy barbecue sauce and threw in some chipotle tobasco sauce. Omitted the green pepper (didn't have any) and used a whole red pepper. Halved the red pepper & chili powder to a tsp. each and achieved just the right spiciness for my liking. Omitted the cilantro (I hate it) and added some fresh chopped parsley instead. Will definitely be making again, thanks!
