I was excited to find this recipe. We have a ton of V8 juice and cans of beans that we needed to use. I think this is a good base recipe but I needed more! I added some beef chuck, bacon and a few more spices which improved it. Just not enough flavor for us and nothing we were "wowed" by. I like that it's made with ground turkey and I am going to experiment and see how I can make this better. My husband gave it a 3 1/2 stars. Not bad. Thanks!


Not flavorful to me, maybe better with beef. I would not make this recipe again. Too many good chili recipes to come across a bad one.


I jazzed it up a bit with crushed garlic, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin seeds, celery seeds, a kick of cayenne and a tablespoon of sugar to cut the acid. My family loved it. I have never cooked with V8 and I am not a chili fan but it was absolutely delicious! I also cooked it a little longer to let the flavors settle.
