    Greeny4444's Note:

    This recipe is adapted from Paula Deen's son Jaime's chili recipe. It is from their "Family cook-off" episode on Food Network, but I changed a few things... partly for our tastes, and partly in the interest of not copying a celebrity. I have used ground beef, ground turkey, and ground bison (not all at the same time) - and we like when it's made with bison or turkey the most. I usually make cornbread or Cheddar Beer Bread to enjoy with this. Hope you like it!

      Super Tasty and good. This made a great supper for a cold wet fall day. Made for PAC Fall 2012.

      What a yummy chili recipe. I made as posted except cutting it in half. My meat of choice was ground turkey. The ingredients all worked great together. I did top it with shredded cheese, some sour cream and chopped scallions. (after photo was taken). I served it with corn bread for a most delicious dinner. Made for Spring PAC 2010. Thanks for posting. :)

      This makes a really nice chili. I only added a can of tomato sauce because it needed a bit more color, but that's just my thing. I'll be making this one again. Thanks!
