Today Tara convinced me to cook turkey chili for the first time. I decided to ask for recipes via Twitter and received plenty of ideas from my friends. Here are a few you might want to check out:

I decided to take a little of each of these recipes and come up with my own recipe. My recipe includes two of my favorite ingredients – beer and easy. This recipe is designed for a crockpot, it takes about 15 minutes to prepare and 4 hours to cook.
