    Hi - I stumbled upon this recipe a couple months back. I always prefer to use ground turkey over ground beef, and nobody in my house like beans. I think this is an awesome recipe! Using 4 jalepenos definitely gives it a pretty good kick. My boyfriend made me go with 3 instead, after the first time I made it (but he's fairly wimpy when it comes to hot foods). It's great either way. (jamieldennis, i recommend you use 3 if you just want a little 'zest')

    Thanks for sharing! :)

    Do the jalepenos make it really spicy? I prefer milder food, but also like a little 'zest.' Sounds like an awesome recipe - I'm dying for chili but it hardly seems worth making b/c my husband hates beans!

    i made your chili for dinner with a few substitutions/subtractions. it's not that i didn't want to follow exactly, i just didn't have on hand. instead of 4 plum tomatoes, i used two 15 oz cans of diced (juices from 1 can instead of beer or water). instead of garlic salt, i used 5 cloves of garlic & salt to taste. no sugar, but a little more honey. love the interesting sweetness that the honey & cinammon bring to the recipe. my husband doesn't enjoy beans, so thank you for experimenting. delicious!
