Chilies are not all the same--differing flavors add wonderful depth to recipes. Pasilla chilies, six to eight inches long, are medium-hot in flavor. When fresh, they are sometimes referred to as chilaca chilies. Canned green chiles can be substituted, but the flavor may be slightly milder.
Home-Style Turkey Vegetable Chili: Before cooking vegetables and chili in step 1, cook 1/2 pound ground turkey in the oil until light brown; drain if desired. Add vegetables and chili. Continued as directed.
