Jay's Spicy Slow Cooker Turkey Chili

Rated as 4.9 out of 5 Stars

"I looked at the top 5 recipes on this site, combined my favorite ingredients from each, plus a few of my own (Sriracha®/adobe sauce) and...ta-da! A meaty, spicy, flavorful, turkey chili! You can quickly cook up the turkey and combine ingredients in slow cooker, throw in the fridge, and take it out to cook on low before you go to work - works perfectly, easy peasy! All the guys love it for football games, tailgating, and just plain old cold weather. From my table to yours, hope you enjoy! Serve with sour cream and cheese to your liking."

Delicious!!! Cooked on high for 5 hours. Just for fun I used Chili seasoning pack instead of taco. Thank you for the recipe, will definitely use this in the future.

Jay's Spicy Turkey Chili Haiku: "Ooo-wee it is spicy! The few things I didn't have, I will do next time!" So I was out of chipotles in adobo, and I either mis-read the ingredient list, or maybe ...

Delicious, but over-the-top spicy for me, who loves spice. I will cut the chili powder to 2 TBLS. Also, I added 1/2 cup chicken broth because mixture was too dry.

I don’t like beans. I added an extra pound of turkey instead of the beans. I also subbed the canned green chili’s with 2 fresh jalapeños. When I put it all in the crock pot it was a little dry. ...

This is the best chilli recipe I have ever tasted. My whole family loves this !

I'm rating it 5 stars because it's true to its name and needs no revisions. Now that doesn't mean I didn't revise it. First, I used Trader Joe's Ground Beef-less instead of Turkey and a 14. oz c...

Yummmmy! I made this pretty much as is but I used extra black beans instead of kidney and added some frozen corn at the end. I also added a can of water but it didn't make it soupy. This chili w...
