Top Review by Crafty Lady 13

I made this recipe exactly as written. I really liked the heartiness of this chili, and I especially liked that it was made healthier with the ground turkey. It had the right amount of heat and I enjoyed the hint of sweetness from the brown sugar. The amount of cinnamon was a little strong for my taste. I think the next time I make this chili I am only going to cut the amount of cinnamon in half. Made for Dec 2010 Bargain Basement Tag.
