Just reading through the spices required, I'm getting so excited! This definitely needs to happen!

Delicious! The fire roasted tomatoes were a great touch and added quite a bit of flavor

There wasn't anything spectacular about this chili, but I did appreciate that the turkey made it a little healthier.

This was outrageously tasty! With a sprinkle of cheese and a dollop of sour cream, it was the perfect lunch for a chilly day.

This was a miss for me. The building parts of the chili by themselves were great, but I think the turkey may have dried it out overall. It might have been better if I had added some sour cream or anything really to give it more moisture. (Also, I've never had chili with corn in it, and now I'm sold.)

This was so yummy! The combination of veggies, beans, and turkey was delicious - I think I prefer it to my regular chili recipe!

I loved this dish. I'm a big chili fan, and I couldn't even tell that this used a healthier turkey instead of beef. It wasn't spicy, which is great because I'm a bit of a wimp, and I loved adding various toppings like avocado and sour cream.
