I am rating this a 5-star because it is fast, easy, healthy and economical. Honestly I thought it was a little bland but It makes a good base recipe, though, so I added some minced garlic, cayenne, hot sauce, worcester, green pepper and served it with lots of topping choices like avocado, cilantro, black olives, cheddar cheese, a squeeze of fresh lime, crushed tostito chips and sour cream. Problem solved, everyone gave it a big thumbs up. Next time I will sub cannellini beans for the chick peas (just a personal preference of texture). Anyway, it's a keeper and thanks for posting it!
Super easy and a great supper served with cornbread and oatmeal cookies for desert on a cold rainy night. Comfort food at its best! I only used 1/2 pound of turkey and also subsituted cannelini beans (for the ckickpeas) with delicious results. This is a must for busy moms who want a hot meal waiting at the end of the day. Thanks Derf we will be having this often!
This really is a great base recipe. I drained the beans and used a can of tomato paste instead of tomato sauce which ensured it not being watery. I added corn, diced bell pepper and okra. Also tweaked it with a little cumin and garlic and paprika. It was a hit! So easy to make and even better next day!
Great recipe! My entire family liked this one (that say's ALOT)! I didn't use the chickpeas and I added some Ceyenne for heat. Also, I was out if ground turkey so I used 93% lean ground beef. I will do this one again but will try the turkey next time....didn't seem like a diet dish at all!
This is a fantastic recipe. In order to give it more dimension and add a bit more spice I also add: 1 tbsp minced garlic, 1/2 tsp paprika, 1/2 tsp dried oregano, 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper, 1/2 tsp ground cumin, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp ground black pepper and 1 can of original ro-tel (drained). I also only use 1 tbsp of the chili powder. We serve it with sour cream, oyster crackers, shredded cheese and jarred jalapeños, and everyone that has tried it offers two thumbs up!!
this was really simple and delicious! I added a green pepper, 1tsp of sugar, 1 tsp of cumin, a packet of chili seasoning and a few fresh cloves of garlic. It was the perfect amount of spice. I would recommend draining the cans though, this was more liquidy than I like my chili so I ate it over rice. Otherwise, very good.
This is a pretty basic chili recipe. If you want to get a heartier chili that feeds more, I like to add frozen corn, chopped green peppers, and chopped celery to the recipe. It has more texture, it's cheap, and feeds a few more.
Delicious! My only change was subbing the cup of chickpeas for a cup of chopped sweet potato. Thanks for the great recipe!
