    David Bishop's Note:

    This is a very versatile chili recipe that also tastes great! They key is the ground turkey breast, which has almost no fat (1 gm per serving vs. 12 gm for most store-bought regular ground turkey). You can easily lower the heat by removing the seeds and pith (white stuff) from some or all of the peppers. If you want to make it Vegetarian, you can remove the turkey and substitute cubed Tofu (or not) and use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth. You can also use the dry ingredients by themselves as a nice chili powder for other recipes.

      *This is a 10 star recipe* I love you Dave! I'm AMAZED that this is one of the best chilis I've ever had and there's no bacon or fatty ground beef. I followed the instructions exactly and wouldn't change a thing! Even though I removed the chili pepper seeds this is *quite spicy* though so beware if that's not your thing (we love it!) The Nutrition Facts are even better than they look too; this is much more than eight servings. I think my husband thought I was having the entire Orlando Magic team over with how much it made, and I'm thrilled to now have these leftovers in the freezer for quick meals. Thanks for a new favorite recipe.

      Wow, super delicious! I think the coffee and cocoa are the secret ingredients in this. I don't care for beer, so substituted red wine, and used jalapenos instead of habaneros to make it less spicy. I cooked it for 2.5 hours, and it had a very rich deep flavor. I think veggie crumbles would be a good sub if you wanted to make this vegetarian. A definite new favorite!
