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.

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.

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!!!

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!

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!
