In a large saucepan, or large shallow pot, drizzle olive oil. Add onions and saute over medium heat for 2-3 minutes.
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.
Add sweet potatoes and saute for another 2 minutes.
In a small bowl combine chili powder, cumin, paprika, cinnamon, salt and pepper. Mix to combine.
Pour crushed tomatoes, chicken broth and pre-mixed seasoning ingredients into the chili mixture. Mix chili thoroughly and reduce heat to a simmer.
Cover pot and simmer for 20-25 minutes.
Add drained corn and black beans. Cover and simmer for an additional 5-10 minutes.
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.
Serve chili over rice with corn chips, cilantro and sour cream.
