"This is just the best tasting chili. My family prefers it over beef chili. I like to put out toppings such as chopped onion, cilantro, chopped bell pepper, cheese, and sour cream and let everyone serve themselves."

  1. Cook and stir the ground turkey in a large pot over medium heat until crumbly and no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Stir in the crushed tomatoes, tomato sauce, kidney beans, pinto beans, black beans, onion, garlic, and red wine. Season with chili powder, cumin, parsley, oregano, black pepper, red pepper flakes, and bay leaves. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer 2 hours. Stir the chili occasionally as it simmers. Remove and discard bay leaves before serving.

I use this recipe now and again because I always have all of the ingredients in the pantry. That being said, it always turns out pretty bland and I end up having to almost double the seasoning....

We are on a low cal. diet and this was the best recipe for turkey chili. It has a lot of favor. I can eat only one cup and it satisfies.

I guess you like your chili spicy because we used 2 tablespoons of chili powder and we couldn't eat it because it was so spicy. Did you use a specific type of chili powder?

I make this about the same, but I like to add whole canned mushrooms and pork and beans with molassas.I add a couple packages of already made chili spice you can buy at any store instead of the ...

Amazingly delicious! I followed recipe exactly and the flavor is delicious!!! Never had chili with red wine in it. A fun variation to my regular chili. Will definitely make again!

I cooked this recipe Sunday and it was great. My family loved it. I forgot to add the red wine. It was a simple and quick recipe. I will try it with the red wine next time. It was not as spi...
