    The chili was pretty good, light and healthy. I had to add some more spicy to my liking but overall it was simple to make.

    I make this chili at least once a month, as a busy college student this makes for a great meal that will last for days!! I like to use white and gold corn for a colorful appearance and also love to pair it with cornbread, sour cream and fresh avocado. This is seriously the best chili!!!

    this is the fourth time I’ve made it and it’s always been great. this time I left off the turkey and added a can of navy beans. I also used hominy instead of corn.

    It reminded me of taco soup, but not quite as flavorful

    The title delivers. I used chickpeas instead of kidney beans, put diced jalapenos in the chili, and upped the cayenne powder to a full teaspoon to make it spicier.

    Love this! However, I would cut back on the chili powder and do half the amount if you dont like it too spicy.

    So yummy! Added some extra ingredients, like carrots and jalapeños. Also used Brooks chili hot beans rather than regular red kidney beans because I love the extra spice! Will definitely be making again.

    Turned out so well! I added a bit of hot sauce for more heat but this fed a family of five no problem.

    Followed the recipe but with reduced chilli as per the authors notes. Personally I found it very bland. I added additional stock cubes and cumin to boost the flavour.

    I always have to add more broth but overall this is a very easy healthy and tasty recipe. I also add coriander.

    I used a little less chili powder than the recipe called for. I enjoyed it, because I tend to like my food a little less spicy.

    I fortified with spinach and added spring onions at the end. Delish!

    Very tasy - just a little to spicy for my liking
