Ingredients

• 2 Tbsp. olive oil

• 1 small sweet onion coarsely chopped

• 1 lb. ground turkey

• 4 cups sweet potatoes peeled and cut into ½-inch cubes

• 2 Tbsp. chili powder

• 2 tsp. cumin

• 1 tsp. paprika can use smoked paprika if you prefer

• 2 tsp. salt

• ¾ tsp. pepper

• 1/8 tsp. cinnamon

• 28 oz. crushed tomatoes canned

• 1 cup chicken broth or water

• 15 oz. sweet whole kernel corn canned, drained

• 15 oz. black beans canned, drained

• Tortilla chips optional

• Cilantro optional

• Sour cream optional

• Cooked rice optional

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, or large shallow pot, drizzle olive oil. Add onions and saute over medium heat for 2-3 minutes.

  2. Push onions to the side and add ground turkey. Continue cooking over medium heat for 6-8 minutes, or until turkey is almost cooked through.

  3. Add sweet potatoes and saute for another 2 minutes.

  4. In a small bowl combine chili powder, cumin, paprika, cinnamon, salt and pepper. Mix to combine.

  5. Pour crushed tomatoes, chicken broth and pre-mixed seasoning ingredients into the chili mixture. Mix chili thoroughly and reduce heat to a simmer.

  6. Cover pot and simmer for 20-25 minutes.

  7. Add drained corn and black beans. Cover and simmer for an additional 5-10 minutes.

  8. Check to see if sweet potatoes are fork-tender before serving. If you would like a slightly thicker chili, mash some of the sweet potatoes to help thicken it.

  9. Serve chili over rice with corn chips, cilantro and sour cream.
