    Nicole, the Chili is delicious. I modified the recipe to add black beans and used Trader Joe’s Soycutash.

  • Celestine Jackson says:

    Love the turkey chili from Panera’s. Only problem?? It’s not served year around!😢 Now I can have it anytime the craving hits!! This chili is easy to prepare, a 1 pot dish and so filling. I followed the recipe but will try different beans next time!!! Give it a try!

  • Joy Jackson says:

    Yummy, delicious, tasty off the chain and super healthy! I made a pot last night and highly doubt it’s going to last until Monday. My family LOVES it! I will have to make more! Thanks, Nicole.

    • Coach Twy says:

      Thank you so much diva for trying it! It’s one of my favs for sure!

      • Lynn Little says:

        Can I use Thanksgiving leftover turkey for this recipe?

        • Ebonie says:

          This chili is the bomb.com. No seriously it is so good, hearty and so good for you. It makes a big pot and very economical to make. I like to add a 1/4 avocado to mine with each bowl but it’s not necessary. I add it just to get some additional healthy fat in for the day!! I think 🤔 it’s better than Panera Breads version, I guess it’s been tweaked to perfection

  • Lynette says:

    Love love love this recipe. It was so good it was gone when I got home today. It was supposed to last me 3 more days. Oh well I’ll make more tomorrow and double the batch.

  • Wennifer says:

    I love it! I made a second batch and took away the meat and added black beans and veggies from the origin detox soup and I am in heaven . I so love the recipe and will be making it next week with meat for the family.

  • Deleatha Foster says:

    This chili is delicious! Be sure to only consume a serving size; it’ would be easy to over eat.

  • Deena says:

    When do you add in the broth?

  • Tiffany Williams Andrews says:

    I made this recipe and I absolutely love it. So warm and filling.

  • Karen Weaver says:

    I just tried the actual soup from Paneras and i really liked it so, i’m here getting the recipe to do myself.
    What is the nutritional values on this soup?

    • Coach Twy says:

      Hi diva, I don’t post nutritional values, because brands matter. I would recommend you use myfitnesspal and put your exact ingredients in. And get ready, this will taste BETTER than Panera 🙂

  • Becky says:

    Has anyone made this recipe in an Instapot?

  • Monique Alston says:

    ❤❤❤ This recipe! Was super easy and the best part you don’t have to be a great cook. The taste is like something out your favorite restaurant. I will definitely be making this again!

  • Melita Mitchell says:

    This recipe has completely replaced my former recipe! It is so delicious and I think it is even better than Panera’s!!!

  • British says:

    This chili is delicious, filling, and as spicy as you want it! I loved it! Seeing all the colors of the different kinds of beautiful food God has given us makes it extra special! I also substituted black beans for the kidney beans – because that what was in my pantry!

  • LAVERN A SMITH says:

    Another delicious recipe! My husband loved it as well!

  • Denise Fields says:
