A chef made this at a cooking class in the upstairs room at the supermarket in town. When I looked over the recipe, I thought "I'm not going to like this". When I watched the prep & the end result, I thought "I'm not going to like this". She served it over a combination of white & brown rice with a side salad. Was I ever wrong. I liked it very much & I will be making it for my DH very soon!

Good meal for my dieting hubby. We liked it a lot, next time I'd add more chili powder and perhaps some cayenne. It was a little bland for me, but I think that was the point. I put some fat free cheddar on top, that was a bad idea. Fat free cheddar is horrible! Next time I'll use the real thing.

this is a nice chili recipe, light on heat so it is good for kids. the turkey lightens it up calorie wise as well. makes a nice casual dinner .

when I make this for my 2 and 1/2 year old grand-daughter she cleans her plate, I have found I can even add her veges in to it and she doesn't care like her carrots I use carrots matchsticks. She thinks its more cheese I suppose. but she eats every bite, and on occasion has come back and asked for more, please..thanks for sharing.
