Great recipe. I like my chili somewhat spicy and hearty and using less peppers did the job for me. I followed the previous reviewer's suggestions and it came out great! Thanks for the easy and tasty recipe! Read More

My husband and I enjoy our chili on the spicy side. We had guests over who don't enjoy spicy food so I omitted the adobe peppers and only did two jalapenos. This was wonderful. I can't wait to make it with all of the peppers the recipe calls for! Read More

I only used 3 jalapeno peppers but it was plenty spicy! I also used a local Irish Red Ale which was great. I look forward to trying a porter in this. I used Bush's BBQ baked beans instead of chili beans. Overall this recipe is a winner it really jazzed up ground turkey meat! Read More

I made this according to the recipe. My husband loved it but I think this recipe has made me decide that I do not like chipotle peppers in my chili. I love them in other recipes just a personal preference to be aware of before diving in! Read More

Super! I'm sure this recipe can be enjoyed exactly as presented, but I made a few changes. - Replaced taco season with New Mexico red chile powder. (4) TBsp - eliminated liquid smoke - cut the chipotle in 1/2 Awesome! Read More

Excellent. I think less onion would be better (maybe 25% to 33% less). It is very spicy and flavorful overall. It could also usemore meat (or veggies), since it was a bit soupy with these quantities. We used cauliflower instead of beans since not all of this family eats beans...that turned out to be an easy substitution and added some nice texture. Read More
