    Great recipe! I cooked it in a crock pot (5 hours low), but didn't add the beans and corn till the last 30 minutes. My family loved it! Great with guacamole on the side! - 12/3/09

    I made this recipe tonight at my sister's house, despite my BIL (jokingly) advising me not to make any diet food. I'm happy to say we all, including my picky 7 year old niece, enjoyed the recipe. Only differences-- I used frozen corn (less sodium) & red pepper flakes. - 5/17/08

    My family loves chili and we loved this recipe! I had almost every ingedient in my pantry. I substituted another can of tomatoes instead of sauce, included the juice from the corn and used green pepper instead of red. We will be eating this again and again! - 1/9/08

    I made a recipe very similar, but with only 1# gr.turkey, added celery hearts, and substitued the seasoned beans for red kidney beans. It made 12 1 cup servings, 205 calories each with a sodium count of 256.3. It freezes beautifully for lunches at work! - 1/23/10

    Very good recipe. I added a can of tomatoes w/green chiles instead of the tomato sauce, and a second can of regular tomatoes to get more liquid in there. It made 10 servings at 1 cup each. I was full after just the one serving! - 1/14/08

    I really liked this recipe, but I would say I would not use as much red peppers in this. It was to hot... I liked the flavor though,,,, I also did not put the red bell pepper in it, because my husband can not eat them.. I will make this again. I had wanted to know what the actual serving size? - 1/24/10

    This recipe is wonderful! I only used a pound of turkey. I used 2 red peppers. No hot pepper. I did not measure out the spices. I like to shake them out. The sprinkle cap from the chili powder fall off along with almost half the chili powder in the container. Excellent chili! I highly recommend it! - 5/24/09

    Good basic chili recipe. I use more beans and add fresh jalapenos to give more kick!

    To those concerned about sodium, you should use fresh tomatoes, beans and corn. The sodium in this recipes comes from the canned items. - 1/9/09

  • This is great! However, a word of caution for those in Australia: Chili powder in Aus has thrice the kick of chili powder in the US. I could use a whole packet of chili powder back in KS without a problem. 1 tblspn of chili powder in Aus...it made it inedible for me. It was VERY hot. - 5/30/14

  • I didn't have chili beans, so added a can of kidney beans.I also only had a large can of crushed tomatoes, so added those and 3/4 cup of water, I added 3 lg. cloves of garlic minced, too. I didn't have a Tbsp. of pepper flakes, maybe 3/4 Tbsp., and the heat was plenty for us. Delicious! - 2/3/14

  • I use the low salt diced tomatoes or I sometimes use fresh tomatoes and dice most and smush the rest - no salt at all to that. Drained canned Beans have enough salt in them - and I don't rinse those. And my dear husband who MUST watch his salt intake, never notices the difference. Yummy recipe!
