I REALLY enjoyed this recipe. I did make a few changes though. The turkey I bought was a little over a pound. I used 2 Tbs of olive oil instead of vegetable oil. I also included minced garlic (I STILL used the garlic powder though. I love garlic). I doubled the cumin and doubled the chili powder. Instead of the Pace Salsa, I used a can of crushed tomatoes and a can of diced tomatoes. And I didn't use the sugar. It came out great!!

Ok I'm giving this 3 stars because it's just OK as written but I think it has a lot of potential. First of all it was way too sweet - I will definitely leave out the sugar next time. Also, it just seems to be really lacking something. I recommend adding lime juice, either to the whole batch or as an option at the table for individual servings.

This was good - I added stewed tomatoes, fresh garlic & celery - and served it over white rice, and topped with Cheese & Sour Cream!! I would make it again!

This recipe is absolutely fantastic. My small picky children loved it. I didn't have the broth so I used water and two chicken cubes instead.

This is a wonderful recipe. I followed it as written and had wonderful results. The only thing I had to change was I used red kidney beans, instead of black. I only had the red beans, and the taste was still perfect. Thanks for the great recipe!

This was really good! I made a few minor changes to accomodate our tastes: omitted onion, used fresh garlic instead of powder, upped the amount of cumin, and doubled the amount of chicken broth. Instead of salsa, I used 1 can of diced tomatoes w/ green chilis and 1 can of chili-ready tomatoes. Very good served with a little shredded cheese and dollop of sour cream. Thank you!

Was very tasty, though I felt it was a little runnier than I would have liked. I thickened it with a bit of cornstarch and all was good. Was very easy and quick to make. I made with corn muffins, and everyone ate it up!

Once again, my slow cooker came in handy for another soup recipe. I put the browned meat in with all the spices, beans and corn and cooked on low for about 8 hours. This was delicious. Terrific healthy chili!
