4 servings (serving size: 1 1/4 cups chili, 1/2 cup rice, and 1 tablespoon cheese)

The name says it all—you can get this cold-weather comfort food on the table in a flash!

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook rice according to package directions, omitting salt and fat.

Step 2

While rice cooks, heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, bell pepper, and turkey, and cook 3 minutes or until done, stirring to crumble. Stir in chili powder and the next 8 ingredients (chili powder through tomato juice); bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes. Serve over rice, and sprinkle with cheese.

Hawaii style....

It may not be Texas Chili but we love everything over rice in Hawaii!  When my Mom was alive, she always served Chili over a bowl of leftover rice, Japanese sticky rice please....this recipe looks like comfort food for me!

Who cares it's not Texas style chili?

Relax, Texas, no one is claiming this is your style of chili. It may come as a surprise but we in other parts of the globe make chili, too. You make it your way and I'll make it mine.

Great dish but NOT from Texas! As fishstitch said, Texas chili has no beans - ever - and you never serve it on rice. Texas is home to the annual world finals chili cook-off, and as you may have guessed, Texans take their chili pretty seriously, much like other "countries" and their cuisines. :-D (Yes, I'm a native...) You may, however, serve chili on top of Fritos to make a Texas State Fair favorite - Frito Pie! Yum!

I cannot understand all the bean talk. I actually had an extra can of beans and added them and thought it tasted good. Probably would be good minus the beans as well. Served mine over pasta and thought it was good with plenty of kick for my wife and would need a little more spice to satisfy my daughter. Seemed the sauce part was a little thin and would not work by itself in a bowl. Was better than any package chili seasoning I ever tried.

I agree with some of the previous reviews about NO rice in chile. I personally don't like beans in my chile either, but a lot of people do. The only thing that goes in my chile is cheese and crumbled saltine crackers, both on the top!

Texas chili NEVER has beans. NEVER!!! It is a good recipe, but you definitely didn't get it from a true Texas because in addition to NO beans, you do not serve it with rice - please!

I kick up the chili powder and usually skip the rice. I love this tuff, make this once every few weeks and the leftovers freeze beautifully. BTW, this tastes twice as good the day after, when the flavors have a chance to blend.
