      This recipe was bland and unappetizing. I don't want to sound rude but after all the trouble I went through to make this recipe only to be rudely disappointed by the horrible addition of the chocolate (which you can definitely taste), knowing I had been hesitant to add it to the recipe in the first place was very disconcerting. The instructions were not very good. I wasn't sure whether to drain the meat or not. There was definitely not enough chili powder and the tomato juice was not a good enough substitution for stewed or diced tomatoes. I am sure this recipe was good when it won the contest, however, I believe my recipe to be much better and I should have stuck to my gunz! Take care!

      I used this recipe using all ground turkey, and used two cans of rotel, with one cup of tomato juice. It was some of the best chili I have had, and lower in fat. Thank you so much for the recipe. Dennis Baker

      Everyone loved it. I have made it up twice in one week. I put it up in the freezer in individual servings.
