    This was very good. I used ground turkey as well, and more beer and beef broth than the recipe called for. Because of this, I may consider thickening with a little flour next time, but the flavor was great. Not the same old, same old chili recipe.

    Liked the texture and flavor, really liked what the mushroom added to the dish. Prefer my chilli with more heat, so will add hot sauce or pepper next time. Every one cleaned their plate!
