Turkey-Black Bean Chili

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by SashasMommy

This came from a book called Great Recipes Collection--Chicken Dinners. I made this with cubed chicken instead of turkey. When I first tasted it, I thought it was too tomato-y, but it grows on you!! I omitted the beer because I didn't have any. I'd like to know if anyone likes it with the beer.

I started making this the other day, got to step 2, and then my husband had to finish it off. He followed your recipe to a T, beer and all. Everyone who had it for dinner that night really enjoyed it, said it was great. Great way to use leftover turkey. BTW, the final product was just the right amount of spice for the adults, too much for the kids - so I'd probably leave a little out next time and serve with extra hot sauce on the table. Thanks SashasMommy!
