    rpgaymer's Note:

    I found this in an old cookbook, made some changes, and it's now the recipe I turn to when I feel like eating chili but don't want to use the slow cooker. You can use any other ground meat, but I like using lean ground turkey.

      Honestly, I'm rating the chili which was really great. It was the potato that I didn't care for with the well developed chili. I thought the baked spud was a very bland and lackluster second fiddle to the star of the show. I made it on the mild side for DH and took out a portion for myself to which I added some heat, yum-o! I doubt that I would have thought of adding BBQ sauce to chili but it really worked well. Oh, I guess that I should say too that I used ground beef as there is no ground turkey around these backwater parts. For me the chili is a real keeper. :D

      Very tasty, this is very forgiving to changes in ratios of ingredients. I used 28 oz of ground turkey, because I had to thaw that much. I increased the garlic to 4 cloves but left everything else the same, and it came out very well. Even I could add another serrano chili pepper, with these ratios. This seemed like a variation on Sloppy Joes (but better). Made for Please Review My Recipe tag game.
