This chili was good but nothing special. But it certainly was easy to make. I made a double recipe for a Super Bowl party. Next time I would add more vegetables and perhaps spice it up some. I prefer non-spicy foods, but this was mild even to me.

Cold winter day in the Northeast and a craving for warm comfort food brought me to this recipe. Doubled the recipe and used 2# ground turkey (1 turkey, 1 turkey breast). Added 6 oz. can tomato paste. Used pinot noir for the wine. Upped the garlic. Used 1 can kidney beans, 1 can black beans. I also increased the green pepper and onion. So very yummy!

This is a great, easy, classis chili recipe. I used a dry merlot (smoking loon) and also added an exra can of kidney beans (drained) and a can of plain diced tomatoes (drained) to thicken it up a bit.

I thought this was great. I used ground turkey (93/7) and used less sugar for fear the wine might cause it to be sweet. I also quickly sauteed some frozen corn in my pan after browning the meat and threw that in too...the corn was delicious To make it a bit thicker I added about 2-1/2 tablespoons tomato paste.

I've been making this recipe for years and it is by far my favorite chili recipe. I double all ingredients except for the ground beef. I also ocasionally add a can of chopped chilis to up the heat.

great chili! Our favorite, and nice to make for a carry-in or potluck because it travels well and people love it. Good to try with your own favorite ingredients, but really great as-is.

This is our new family favorite! I used other readers' tips and have added kidney beans, black beans and frozen corn. I'd done it several ways and all have been hits! Adding fire roasted canned tomatoes gives it even more of a kick. I have used red wine each time. I've prepared it in the crock pot as well as one the stove. I have never used the green peppers and have used frozen onion each time. I've received compliments on this every time so it's now a staple in our house.

This is an easy recipe and of course, I tweeked it a bit.. I added more cayenne pepper and chili pepper to this. I added 1 can of vacuum packed corn and 1 can black olives sliced. I have used many different red wines but my family likes it best with a Spanish red wine. I also topped it with green onions, jack/cheddar mix and chopped cilantro.. mmmmmmmmmmmm so good!
