This is simple and delicious. I buy ground turkey on sale and always have several pkgs of it in the freezer. I double the spices and the beans, and use crushed garlic cloves instead of powder, but left out the salt.

Very good. But, I did double all of the spices and it still could've used more, but this recipe is a great base. It was easy. I also doubled the beans and that came out well.

This was great chili and you truly can't tell it is ground turkey! I did add approximately 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper as well as a little bit of additional cumin and chili powder. Would make this again for sure. Thanks for sharing!

Hate turkey, loved this! I doubled the spices, added an extra can of beans (Cuban Black Beans from Trader Joe's), used fire-roasted tomatoes (Muir Glen). It's really good.

I have become a big chili eater since I found your recipe, this is better than any ground beef version out there. I double all the spices, use fresh garlic cloves, add a tbsp of Chipotle and extra cayenne and reduce the salt. Its super yummy, low fat and high protein and fibre. Simple, delicious, healthy and freezes well. What's not to love?

Terrific recipe! I used diced tomatoes with green peppers and fresh garlic instead of garlic powder. The blend of spices is perfect and this has a wonderful, rich texture. Even better the next day! Served with crackers & shredded cheese, yum!

This is the best chili recipe by far! I do however use a bit more of all the spices for fuller body and instead of water i use another can of stewed tomatoes, then add a can of black beans... and to make all the flavours pop i throw in a bay leaf! SOOO good, thanks for posting :)

I have made two different versions of this recipe and both were delicious. The first time I omitted the tomato paste, doubled the spices (except chili powder) and added some beef bouillon. I also purred some green chilis and added them in for extra flavor. It was so delicious!! (Do not use more than 1/2 cup water if omitting the tomato paste.) probably the best "chili" type recipe I've ever made, and it's great for those that don't like a real tomato-y flavor. Tonight I made it with the tomato paste, doubled the spices and used all the water. This version is really good too, but I think I prefer the one without the tomato paste.

This was OK. Just not my favorite. To be fair, I'm not a ground turkey fan to begin with but the title gave me hope. Sorry.
