Just saw the note to try it with ground turkey. That's what I have on hand, has anyone ever tried it? I have ground breast meat, which I realize may not be as flavorful, but that's all I have!
This is one of my very favorite chili recipes! I have made it several times and rarely veer from the original recipe. Love how spicy it is!
I have never written in before; however, I must. We have tried many chile recipes and this is by far the BEST!!
@suzannep - I would have definitely used ground turkey, so if that doesn't work in this recipe then I want to know that - this is the most helpful review to me. Its strange that you would tell someone to "lighten up" because they didn't like a chili recipe.
Suzannep - Lighten up about what? All I did was express my opinion on the recipe..... I thought that was the point of this area. Am I wrong? Should I have done that in a different area?
I made this last night and it was good (not great). I did cut back on the chipotles for the kids and added some liquid smoke to enhance the flavor. I loved the beer flavor (used Dos Equis amber lager). My husband had 3 bowls and my kids loved it too. Next time I would up the seasoning a bit and maybe add some bacon.
To Hedoann ~ LightenUp!!! I've been making our fabulous spicy family chili for yrs & everyone luvs it! I suggest making a few changes to this chili: use 1 1/2 lb. gr. White Turkey Breast;1-28 oz. Can Hunts Crushed Tomatoes;1 Lg Green Pepper,Chopped;2 Tbsp. Chili Powder;1 tsp. Chipotle Chile Pepper;1 Tbsp. Chopped Chipotles in Adobo Sauce;2-3 - 15.5 oz. Cans Kidney Beans, drained - Saute meat,onion & gr pepper together,until veg are tender, stir in seasonings & chipotles. Stir in remaining ingredients and simmer until flavors marry; tweek seasonings, if necessary! Hope this helps a bit!
anyone have tips for making this in a slow cooker?
