Simple Turkey Chili

Rating: 4.56 stars
This is a very simple and hearty chili with plenty of flavor. It's even better the second day! I serve this with lowfat Cheddar cheese and lowfat sour cream. It's also delicious with crackers.

Pork Chili Verde (Green Pork Chili)

Rating: 4.86 stars
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
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
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
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
The extra step of roasting the sweet potatoes really concentrates the sweet, earthy flavors and gives the starchy chunks a marvelously meaty texture.

Cincinnati Chili I

Rating: 4.44 stars
An unusual chili, with cinnamon, cloves, and even chocolate!

Rating: 4.47 stars

Rating: 4.3 stars
Absolutely delicious. I know it doesn't sound appetizing, but it's unbelievable how tasty it is, and so easy too!

Jeff's Hot Dog Chili

Rating: 4.5 stars
A really good chili sauce like I had as a kid. This took me many years to get the ingredients just right. Hope you enjoy.

Green Enchilada Pork Chili

Rating: 4.7 stars
A delicious, Mexican-inspired green pork chili. When garnished with fresh tomatoes, avocado, sour cream, and tortilla chips this is a hearty meal with a tangy and spicy finish.

Smitty's Low-Carb Chili

Rating: 4 stars

Finding variety can be brutal when on a low-carb diet! I miss rich stews and soups, particularly hearty and spicy ones, while trying to remain in ketosis. Threw this chili together out of some leftover pork loin and cauliflower rice, and was thrilled with the result. The cauliflower is for texture only - it has little effect on the taste.
