Turkey Chilli

    1 hour 20 mins

    This isn't your usual chilli con carne. Black beans and turkey mince make for a delicious twist on the classic - you could substitute chicken for the turkey. This hearty meal is an easy - and healthy - way to feed a crowd, and also freezes well. Top with grated cheddar.

    This was delicious and EASY. I used 1.3 lbs of ground turkey. I, too, increased the crushed tomatoes to 28 oz., added 1/2 T. cumin and some jalepeno and chipotle peppers. I cooked the onion, garlic and turkey in a saute pan, then transferred the mixture to a crockpot (so I didn't have to tend to it) and added the other ingredients. It cooked on high for an hour and a half and was ready to eat.  -  20 Mar 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe is a definte 5 stars!! I followed the other reviewers suggestions and used a 28 ounce can of tomatos,1.5 lbs of turkey and 1/2 a teaspoon of cumin. It was excellent but not spicy enough for my liking, so I added another 1/2 teaspoon of cumin and a tablespoon of crused red pepper. It was perfect!!! This is something I will make again and again!!  -  26 Jan 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was the best new recipe I have tried in a long time. If you own a can opener you can make this dish. I read the other reviews and took what sounded good from those. I used 28 oz of tomatoes, 2 cans black beans, 1 can pinto beans with jalapenos, and 1 can of corn. I also added 1 tbl cumin and 1 tsp red pepper flakes. This mixture and amount of spice was perfect for us. My husband and I both LOVED this dish. He ranted for days about how good it was. I served it with sweet cornbread, and topped it with a little shredded cheese and sour cream .... YUMMMO!!  -  10 May 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
