This is so easy and so tasty. Freezes great for meals later in the week. If you want it a little thinner add an extra can of tomato sauce. Also the green chiles are not hot but add a wonderful flavor, so don't be afraid of them.

This recipe was my first attempt at making chili. And let me tell you it was DELICIOUS! It says it makes 10 servings but I couldn't get enough. Actually it yielded about 8 servings. I feed my family of four and it was about 2 servings a piece. I didn't have fire roasted tomatoes so I used regular diced tomatoes and was very pleased with the results. I can not wait to make this again. It is similar in texture to Wendy's chili. However I think this is better! Loved it! Read More

I made this for the first time tonight and followed the recipe exactly. It was ok but way too bland for my family's tastes. My husband who usually eats anything was adding stuff to it at the table while he was eating it. All 3 of my kids didn't like it at all. I have definitely made better tasting chili but this does have healthy ingredients. Read More

I am SO glad I made this!!! I got a brand new 6-qt. digital Crock Pot for Christmas this year, so I've been on a mad hunt for slow cooker recipes! This was the first one I decided to make since we had about a week's-worth of Winter come through about a week ago. It was so extremely amazing! The only thing I changed was that I used 80/20 ground beef in place of the turkey (I have a thing about ground turkey). It was the best chili I have ever made in my life! It wasn't so spicy that it left my lips blistered, but had a little kick with the tomatoes. I saved exactly half of it to freeze and my husband and I ate off off it for three days. The part that I froze is enough to invite my youngest daughter and her family (5 extra people)!!! I WILL be making this again. Extremely easy recipe, and extremely good!!! I made some rice, had assorted grated cheeses, and good old-fashioned corn bread to go with it (the rice helps with young children who can't tolerate any spice--even though it's not a really spicy-hot chili). It's good all by itself, however! Thank you so much for the recipe!!! Read More

Add 1 tsp of salt and 3/4 c beer plus a pinch of red crushed pepper and/or 1 diced jalapeño! We love it! Serve it with home made corn bread or fritos and a dollop of sour cream. Delicious!!! Read More

I made this last night. I skipped the tomato sauce and made it vegan. Added lots more chili powder and oregano and sauteed the onion, garlic and peppers in olive oil for 5-7 minutes before throwing it in. Top with vegan cheddar and tortilla chips and voila Read More

This was great but a bit bland... Admittedly I didn't have the green chiles...or the 'fire roasted' tomatoes - just used 2 cans of plain tomatoes. However I added some coriander. That was awesome! I would recommend cilantro if you have it on hand coriander if you don't. I only had whole coriander so I crunched it up in a tea bag and floated it in the crockpot. The cilantro/coriander adds this lovely after taste and covers up some of the bean aftertaste. Also 1 cup or more of frozen corn - added in the last hour or so of cooking. I made it with beef and was a bit generous with the beef. Served with options of shredded cheese sour cream and hot sauce. It got rave reviews at a recent potluck. Read More

Always a family favorite! We like extra meat so we add an additional pound of lean ground beef. We also add a bag of frozen corn. Smells delicious as it slowly simmers! Read More

Substituted some lean beef sausage slices instead of turkey and stewed tomatoes instead of fire roasted tomatoes. Thickened sauce just a bit and served on top of white rice. Very good. Read More
