Simple Turkey Chili

Rating: 4.56 stars 2275
Using ground turkey, canned kidney beans, and plenty of seasonings gives this simple and surprisingly light chili plenty of flavor. It's even better the second day!

Pork Chili Verde (Green Pork Chili)

Rating: 4.86 stars 110
This chili verde was one of the first recipes I ever learned. It comes out great even if you don't brown the meat, but I think doing so always adds extra flavor so I usually do it.

Chicken and Two Bean Chili

Rating: 4.5 stars 70
An awesome change from the traditional beef chili! I made this for my husband for the first time and he went back for seconds!

White Bean Chicken Breast Chili

Rating: 4.67 stars 115
I love a hearty beef chili as much as the next guy, but once in a while there's nothing wrong with going over to the light side and enjoying an equally comforting bowl of white bean and chicken chili.

Award Winning Chili

Rating: 4.6 stars 507
This delicious chili took 2nd place at our local chili cook-off! Bet you can't eat just one bowl. If it is too thick, add water 1/4 cup at a time until you reach desired consistency. Even better tasting the second day!

Sweet Potato and Black Bean Chili

Rating: 4.74 stars 445
The extra step of roasting the sweet potatoes really concentrates the sweet, earthy flavors and gives the starchy chunks a marvelously meaty texture.
