    When I 1st made this, I thought- this tastes like diet food. Not rich, not satisfying, something was missing. Then I let it sit on my stove covered for two hours until I put it away. I took a taste and the difference was amazing. Now it was good. Make it early and let the flavors blend. - 2/1/09

    I simmered mine a bit longer than the 15 minutes b/c the beans weren't soft enough yet to my liking. The reason the calorie count is so high on this is b/c it's based on 4 servings when it produces 8 one-cup servings, so you can count down the calories just by watching your portion size. Very good! - 1/29/09

    Be sure to rinse the beans well--saves you calories and sodium.

    I also added carrots (2 medium), celery (2 stalks), and a red pepper to up the veggie count. Definitely cook it longer for a thicker, tastier chili. All around a GREAT base that allows you to customize at will!! - 3/10/09

    I browned the turkey and onions then put everything in the crockpot on low for about 5 hours. I also added a chopped jalapeno. This makes a LOT! I ate a little over a cup with 1/2 cup brown rice. - 8/25/08

    As others have said, I found this chili not terribly good after only 15 minutes of cooking. So I let it simmer for a couple of hours, too, and it's delicious. Means I can't make it after a long day at the office, but I can make it on the weekend and put it in the fridge for the week. Heat in micro. - 3/13/09

    I am not sure why you got such a high calorie count on the recipe. When I added mine up I got far less. I used 93% Gr. Turkey. This was a hit with my family as well. Made a few adjustments to my families liking. No Pinto beans and added a can of Diced Tomatoes to make it go further. - 11/3/08

    A lot of people commented about the need for the chili to simmer longer. Ever thought of doing this in the crockpot? Brown the turkey and onions on the stove first, then put everything else in the crockpot and let it simmer all day. Come home to a ready-to-eat, healthy, comforting, and warm meal. - 10/24/09

    It was very good. Lacked a little kick so expect to add some hot sauce if you like things spicy. - 2/25/08

    This was great!!! I took the poster's suggestion and ladled some over a big bowl of salad. Soooo good! I used Yves ground round instead of real meat, also used black eyed peas instead of black beans since that's what I had. I also added chopped green pepper. Yum, yum! Thanks for the recipe. - 12/5/08

    I make this (just the way the recipe was written) chili at least once a month, sometimes weekly. Everyone asks for the recipe when I take it to work. So easy and so yummy - hard to believe it's healthy too! - 1/27/09

    I made this with 2 cans of petite diced tomatoes with green chiles, added 2 more tbsp of chili powder and a whole can of nsa tomato paste. It was great that way. I don't think it would have passed my husband's taste test the way it was written in the recipe but it is simple and I'd make it again. - 1/29/08

    This was fast, easy and delicious. I always go for leftovers so I doubled all the ingredients except for the beans (used 3 cans instead of 4) and served it with cornbread and coleslaw. It was a big hit in my house because it was tasty without being spicy. - 1/30/08

    Delicious recipe - I made mine a little more gourmet by adding some half cooked chopped baby bellas a few minutes before I turned the stove off. I let the pot sit for about 15 minutes and voila - we were chowing down! Wonderful on a bed of greens. My husband and kids had theirs over rice. - 2/18/09

    I've made this many times and my family loves it. Last time I added ground red pepper for a little zing. It's also really good on a big bowl of greens. Yum! - 11/27/08
