I really like this recipe. It was super easy to make and I was able to omit the chipotle peppers and chili to make a super mild version, but the cumin and cinnamon really keep it flavorful. After cooking the ground turkey (yes 1/2 a pound is more than enough meat) and quinoa, it was basically a dump it in a pot and forget about it. I had never eaten quinoa before and so I was hesitant, but after tasting it, I realized it has the taste of brown rice and a very pleasant texture. I also considered omiting the beans, but it turns out I like black beans in this context. They give a great meaty texture to an almost vegetarian dish. Honestly, I think the dish would be fine if you omitted the turkey. I like meat so I added it in :).
My chili didn't turn out as red as the picture from the recipe because I used diced tomatoes and I couldn't find adobo sauce, so I used powder instead. Overall a great dish, easy to make, and it is very filling. Next batch I'm actually going to count how many cups it comes out to to have a better estimate of meal size. I've been eating about 2 cups in one sitting, and so far I've gotten about 7 meals out of one pot! In short definitely making this again!
