Simply Fantastic recipe!! I substituted the beef with ground turkey and turkey sausages. didn't use beer, but will next time. i didn't pay attention to the serving size, so for a family of 3, I made turkey for an army, so in addition to freezing some, i had once for breakfast and 3 days for lunch :-) I think because i used turkey, i'm not sick of it. Will definitely make this again--i'll cut it in half though. lol
First off: this is the BEST chili recipe I have EVER made. That’s according to my husband. Just to note :This recipe is fantastic just as it is! I only made modifications because of what I had on hand but it turned out well! I omitted the 2lbs cubed venison/beef because of cost/availability and swapped in an extra 3 Italian sausage links I had previously frozen. YUM! Also I couldn’t find turkey broth so I just used chicken broth. I also added extra water, basically to rinse out the tomato cans. This was useful especially for those of us who used the 18qt roaster. Since the roaster has holes in the lid to release steam we loose some of the water/moisture in cooking vs a crock. This is especially true if the chili is left to stew for A longer period as our was ( about 6 hours). Anywho. Small changes that were not by any means needed as this is SO GOOD. but for those who may benefit from my successful tweaks I hope this is helpful!
