WE loved these!! Different than the traditiona for a change. I only used 2 peppers (for my husband and I) because my kids hate peppers. I also used 2 cans of chili beans because we like it that way. So, for the left over chili, we ate for left overs. Really good for being fast and easy.

Excellent recipe. I had to use ground turkey so added some olive oil to brown the meat and onions, since ground turkey has no fat and hard to brown without some oil.Salt substitute was also used. I will definitely make again. This can be a make ahead recipe also except for the cheese.
