Turkey chili is good, I may like it more than traditional chili. Has anyone else tried it?

You "may" like it more? Either you do or you don't.

A couple of times. Once with domestic turkey and once with a wild one. I'd never eat the domestic version again.

Ohhhhh...When you said Wild Turkey I thought you meant the drink not the animal! I though chili and wild turkey was an odd combo.

I'm a Jack Daniels guy, but a little Wild Turkey will do in a pinch.

On occasion I'll do my regular chili, made normally with cubes of beef and pork----with turkey instead. Dark meat works best, it has much more of the color and seems closer to the beef. While it's not like the real stuff, it's pretty good.

I have made chili---same recipe i use to make "a bowl of Texas Red"---posted previously and "Bushie approved!--with Turkey and only ONE person noticed it was turkey. Its not the meat that makes the chili---but the seasonings and the cooking method---(and of course. the fact that the beans are ON THE SIDE not IN the chili[;)Even an old Yankee like me learned that!]--I have had good chili with antelope,venison,armidillo,wild pig,beef,and ostrich ---it all tasted fine to me!

Were all those animals in the same bowl? That would have been some interesting chili!

Turkey chile with enough tabasco and other seasonings is pretty tasty. I still prefer beef though.

I agree with Tiki, any kind of meat can make some good chili.

Looking forward to hear how it goes Stoney!

Hmmm, "Sunday House Smoked Turkey" chili! I love those turkeys and it might make some good chili?

I think some people might be thinking slices of Thanksgiving turkey, which would in fact be bad. Ground turkey chili is fine, but not as good as beef.

Ground turkey chili has always tasted good to me.

Diced, floured, and browned, dark meat smoked turkey might not be bad..... but I've never tried it.... so you could be right Theedge. I think I'll try some when I get the chance. Hey, I'll eat almost anything! And, so will my dog.

So if we're doing ground turkey, what about ground chicken?

Chicken Chili.

The hot dog thought isnt that far off....my Mom would occasionally chop up hot dogs(skin on weiners from Usingers)and put them in her chili to "stretch it"in the lean days.Really quite good.And i have a favorite family recipe called hot dog spaghetti-but will save that for another forum.....

I made fast fix meals for the grandzillas lots of times using hot dogs and chili, "chili dog stew". They eat it up. Just a pack of cheep dogs sliced up, and a can of Wolf Brand, cheese for toping, fritoes and saltines on the side.

A good homemaid chili w/ some quility dogs might be great? Anyone done it? I'll top my bowl w/ some sourcraut, chopped onions, and pickled jalapenos.

Green chile with sliced Thanksgiving leftovers sounds heavenly to me. Some kind of simple sauce, maybe with a few onions as well as the green chiles, added to some really good leftover turkey gravy, give the meat just long enough in there to warm it up... I'd eat that.

...Of course maybe that says more about me than it does about the idea.

Turkey Chili,

is like a ship without a wheel
A touch without a feel
I can't believe it's real...

The few times i have eaten eat it seams like all you taste is chili flavor from the spices. I had no meat flavor.

You have maybe not had any good turkey chili Joe. It can be good stuff. Like someone here said, any meat can work, and be good. Even a vegi chili can be good. You can't think it's gonna taste like red meat chili though. It's a different kinda bird.

You're probably right, I have had it out of a can, Wolf Brand, at a chili cookoff, and once in a restaurant.

The Wild Turkey Chili above sounds intresting though. Kinda like cooking along with Justin Wilson.

Ahhhh, Justin Wilson, I sure miss him! Yep Joe, CK always posts some interesting recipes.

I have not tried the Wolf Brand turkey. I think someone said they liked it, in one of the canned chili threads here.

I once had a shrine for Justin at my house. A picture, a cut out from a box that contained some of the products sold w/ his name on them that said "I garontee", the empty bottles of the products, and some other stuff. My sweety made me dismantle it, shoot!

I am still hoping to try making some smoked turkey chili this season.

PapaJoe8,

I bow to your wisdom. I had a darn good bowl, acutally several bowls, of vegetarian chili last weekend. There is an organic produce market and vitamin store across the freeway from work that has a brunch everyday. They had vegetarian chili so I thought I would try it. I really did not miss the meat. If I was looking for meatless chili this would be it.

I made the habanero turkey chili and it was very tasty, though the hubby (a die-hard "Texas Red" chili maker)refused to acknowledge that it was chili and claimed the texture of the turkey "tasted funny". Other folks that ate it loved it and wanted the recipe.

We miss Justin Wilson, too... I was lucky enough to meet him at a book-signing once, and gave the autographed cookbook to hubby for Christmas that year.

Welcome to roadfood Lady! Nice to have anouther chili cook here. Folks are picky about names for chili, and pizza, also. I learned that when someone brought up PBJ pizza. Thers a "Without it, it ain't Real Chili" thread also, that expounds on the name thing. The newest wisdom here is that you can use whatever meat, and put whatever you want, in your chili. Your turkey habanero chili sounds great.
