2 (15 ounce) cans

We use ground turkey instead. I usually add a tsp of chili powder, 2 cloves of garlic, a tsp of cayenne and 2 tsps. of cumin to give it some extra flavor. Also, try browning the ground turkey with olive oil and garlic powder. This is a fave. There is rarely enough for a meal by the time it is finished cooking because one of us always has a spoon in it.
It was ok but it certainly wasn't spicy at all. I would add hot sauce or cumin or something to make it a bit more flavorful, but it was super easy and healthy.
This recipe is a great chili alternative for people who don't eat red meat. None of the flavor is sacrificed, and it was just hot enough for me (the heat level can easily be adjusted). Best of all, this is an easy, no-fuss recipe. The leftovers taste great too! When I made it, I used a pound of ground fresh turkey rather than canned turkey. Cheap and healthy!
I took a chance and found this for a luncheon and it went like hotcakes!! I've got many requests for this recipe, unfortuneately I have to tell them where I "found" it!!!
Corwynn, once again, I am pleased with the results of a recipe submitted by you. I used ground turkey, (because I had a pound of it taking up freezer space) but I bet it would be just as good with the canned. Upon my first taste, I was like "I don't know about this one" but after an hour of simmering and the seasonings blending = good eats! By the way, I used the "chili seasoning II" from this site which worked great. Thanks again!
This is an excellent recipe, and I've made it several times with a few changes depending on the crowd. First off, I use fresh ground turkey, add a chopped bell pepper, a can of rotel, and a couple of tbs of sugar - ALWAYS. For my spicier friends, I substitute half the kidney beans with hot chili beans (this is my favorite way to have it). For those who prefer a milder chili, I leave out the chopped chilies, and use the mild chili beans.
Regardless of the crowd, this chili always gets rave reviews!
I have been making this for a long time, and I use fresh ground turkey meat. I brown the meat first, and I eliminate the chili peppers, since I do not like it that spicy.
I make it often, since it is a fave recipe of mine.
I made this on football sunday for my in-laws. They loved it! I used ground turkey and browned it before adding to the other ingredients in the slow cooker. With an hour left I added 1/4 cup of water mixed with 2 tablespoons of flour to thicken the mixture up a little. It was perfect on a cool afternoon! Thanks!
