    I love this quick and easy chili. I usually have everything on hand so its a great last minute idea for dinner. I do add another clove or two of garlic and an additional can of beans for more volume. If you're looking for a great 'comfort food' this is it! P.S. its only about 280 calories per serving.

    This is a super easy super delicious chili! Excellent flavors. I only had ground chicken on hand so I used it. I also added a green bell pepper. Was out of garlic so I used powder. This will probably be my go to chili now! Under 300 calories for a generous cup and a half. Don't leave out the cilantro!

    I love this chili recipe -- so easy and so flavorful! I add extra beans (whatever I have in the pantry), as well as bell peppers when I have them on hand. And always add the cilantro!! It makes such a difference! Great recipe.

    This is my favorite chili hands down. The beer makes it really wonderful. I too add a few cloves of garlic. I leave out the beans because I don't care for them and it is still wonderful.

    I make this chili recipe at least once a month. It is so good and so simple. I did try in the crock pot once. I did all the steps up to the tomato paste on the stove and then transferred to a crock pot. I cooked on low for 8 hours. It was a little too soupy in the slow cooker since I didn't reduce the liquid. This is the best chili I've ever made

    I've made this a few times for my husband (who is a chef) and some friends - it always gets rave reviews! I've made a few modifications, like using 3 cans of beans (one pinto, one black and one kidney), using 2cups of broth and no beer, one whole onion, and this time we added chopped mushrooms and a can of green chilis diced up. Makes a wonderful and hearty meal, and is even better as leftovers! Will make this over and over again.

    Loved this recipe! So simple and flavorful. Only used 1/2 amount of the chili powder, and used broth instead of beer. I made corn muffins to go with this meal. Even crumbled the muffin in my bowl. Delicious!! I thought chili took hours to make in general, but this is an easy go-to meal for us! Will make this again.Thanks!

    Great chili version. Easy, quick, flavorful. I added chopped green bell pepper with the onions and this was a nice addition. I'll make this chili again!

    Excellent Chili recipe, in fact, my husband said it was the best Chili he's ever eaten! It was even better the next day! I have been trying different Chili recipes for the last 20 years, and this will be the only one I use from now on. I don't eat red meat, so the fact that it has turkey in it makes me very happy. I added an extra can of black beans, and you could probably even add one more can if you like more beans in your Chili. The Cilantro is a perfect final touch!!!

    Good flavor and easy enough to put together. Followed recipe, with the exception of using 1/2 chipotle chili powder and 1/2 reg. chili powder and I found the consistency to be a little too thin, so I added about a tablespoon of corn starch mixed w/ a tablespoon of chicken broth and added to the chili while it was simmering.

    This chili turned out runny and had too much beer flavour for my liking. The next time I would make it, I would use crushed tomatoes instead of whole tomatoes for thickness and cut the beer down to half a cup or leave it out. I also made adjustments to it like adding some green pepper, an extra can of black beans and a tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder for depth. It is nice with corn bread on the side.
