Need Awesome Chili Recipe

So I did a search here on CH and didn't really find anything. Maybe I'm a tard, so forgive me if you have read the chili recipe quest a million times. I am going to a chili cook out on Saturday and need an awesome recipe. To be honest, I don't eat chili and have never made it, but want to give it a shot. Something somewhat simple though. Also, I am open to using ground turkey. Thanks!

    See the recipe in the comments for a prize winning chili and lose the unfortunate reference in your second sentence.
