My son has an allergy to tomatoes, so this recipe was a great find for our family. I used diced turkey cutlets instead of ground turkey because it is what I had and I also added an extra can of black beans to make it stretch a little further and we got 2 meals out of it. My kids told me this recipe is a "keeper"!

I must say I was surprised it was so good! I'm used to tomato based chili. My mom would always use V8 juice as the base. I ended up making a couple revisions though. I had some extra time so I used 1lb dried black beans (I like my chili a little more beany than most), I didn't have canned green chili so I diced 3 jalapenos and cooked it with the onion. I added more of all the seasonings because of the extra beans. To add a bit of color, I added a can of salt-free corn and I chopped about a cup of tomatoes in really small pieces and added chopped cilantro towards the end of cooking. Thanks for sharing, it was deliciously different and no heart-burn! (probably because it was not tomato based)

Really good. Would probably do well with the addition of some veggies such as red pepper, corn or mushrooms.

This was super easy and really delicious. I didn't make any changes to the recipe. It was a favorite at our Fall Festival booth. This will become a staple in my cookbook.

This is a wonderful chili and so simple. The only change I made was to use ground buffalo instead of ground turkey and that was only because I thought I had ground turkey but didn't. Thanks for posting this.
