The texture as written is just not what we are looking for in a chili. It was thick to the point that it reminded me of goulash and belonged on a plate instead of a bowl - I ended up adding another can of diced tomatoes, one cup of beef broth and one cup of V8. I reduced the serving size as another reviewer did (to 5 which evenly divides the meat, beans and onions). Since I strayed so far from the recipe, I can't say that I'd make this one again. Made for Pick A Chef Spring 2008.
I made 4 servings of this for lunch today and it's quite tasty. I used a can of mixed beans (didn't have kidney beans) and subbed in 1/3 cup of t.v.p. for the turkey. I'm cutting fat wherever I can and tvp has .03 g of fat per ounce and there is a lot of tvp in an ounce. The key here is the seasoning mix of course so use the best or make up some of your own. It's certainly easy and I think that it's a chili the kids will love too.
