Sweet Potato Turkey Chili

This is a slightly modified version from my previous turkey chili recipe found here…it doesn't have to be cold outside to enjoy a nice big bowl of this hearty chili! And it's the perfect recipe to guarantee quick & easy leftovers all week long!

Ingredients:

1 lb ground turkey (99% lean)

1 large sweet potato, peeled and chopped 

1 white onion, chopped

1 green pepper, chopped

2 & 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth (or water) 

1 (28 ounce) can canned crushed tomatoes

1 (16 oz.) can canned black beans, drained and rinsed

1/2 cup uncooked quinoa, rinsed (this is optional, but makes for a delicious, heartier chili!)

1-2 Tbsp garlic, minced

2 Tbsp chili powder

1/2 tsp paprika

1 tsp ground cumin 

1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp black pepper

Directions:

1. Cook ground turkey in large skillet with 1 tbsp olive oil over medium-high heat. Once fully cooked, add to crockpot along with all other ingredients. Mix well. Cook on high for 4 hours (or low 6-8 hours), until sweet potatoes are tender, stirring once every few hours. Serve with delicious toppings such as a few slices of avocado, a Tbsp of shredded cheese, or some whole wheat crackers!
