Liked this. Had to adjust the amount of chili powder (a little less, have family that can't have spicy food) still good and those who wanted more spice just added more chili powder to their serving. Also great over rice.

I tripled this recipe & it made just under 4 quarts. My neices & their families absolutely loved this served over (turkey wiener) hot dogs. The next day, they simply ate bowls of chili. I couldn't find ground turkey breasts, just the ground turkey. Worked well. Delicious. Serve it the next day so the flavors marry.
