Mild-Mannered Chili

Rated as 4.64 out of 5 Stars

"I like chili, but I'm not a fan of heat for heat's sake. I wanted something that would warm me up but not be overwhelmingly hot, and this was the result. My husband says that this would also make a good sloppy joe (with beans) mix."

My husband and I love this chili. The only change I made was that I cooked some diced onion in olive oil before I added the ground turkey. I've made it with hamburger too. My husband likes it...

So easy to make. I definitely make this again. We actually put it over pasta. I used the fire roasted tomatoes and that added just the right flavor.

Hands chili! super easy and everyone loved it.

This recipe exactly what it says Mild Mannered. I did my chili on the stove top and omitted the tomato paste and added onions. Mom ate it as is and loved it. Hubby and I like heat so we heated o...

Very good Chili, I only made a couple changes. I added 1/4 pound sweet sausage to the ground turkey in the browning process and added a can of corn with the beans.

I added a sweet onion, yellow pepper and an ear of corn just because I like veggies in my chili. Very little chili powder used, but added smoked paprika. Turned out very good.

I loved this chili and I will make it again and again!
