I use it ocassionally but I use ground turkey all the time.  I rarely use ground beef. So anything that calls for ground beef I substitute with ground turkey or chicken. That includes burgers, tacos, meatloaf, etc.  We like it a lot better because it isn't greasy.  But I do find that I often have to add extra spices as it can be rather bland on its own. For burgers I add a little applesauce to help keep them moist.

I've used it to replace ground beef a few times. Also makes good meatballs, sausage, egg rolls, stir fry...

I personally can't think of a scenario where I'd want ground chicken instead of my homegrown ground beef, but I realize that's a perk most people don't have.  I'd be concerned with what's in the ground chicken and since they don't have to list ingredients it'd be tough to know.

We don't.  I use chicken more than anything else, but a few times a month we use 92-96% lean grass fed beef.
