Sweet Potato and Turkey Chili

Amazing is the best way to describe this chili! I am really trying to eat healthy again after 3 back to back road trips. Eating on the road and most certainly on vacation is challenging. Now that we are home I am back on my healthy eating game… and this chili is perfect for that! My husband had a softball game so I knew I needed to make something that didn’t take long to prepare and would be ready for when we got home. I researched a few recipes and decided to make this one my own. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!!!!

Sweet Potato and Turkey Chili

1 lb ground turkey

1 28 ounce can diced tomatoes

1 15 ounce can black beans

1 packet organic mc Cormick chili seasoning

1 green bell pepper diced

1 red bell pepper diced

1 jalapeño sliced ( I kept seeds in )

1 cup chicken stock

1 large sweet potato peeled and diced

1 small onion diced

2 tbsp olive oil

2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon cumin

Heat olive oil in sauce pot add onion and turkey and cook till brown. Add peppers and sweet potatoes. Cook for a few minutes till they start to soften slightly. Add tomatoes and beans. Add chicken stock and seasonings. If it looks like it needs more liquid you can add more stock or water * I let mine cook for about an hour and a half before we left for the game. I turned off the heat and left it on the stove while we were gone. When we came home it was amazing! I can’t wait to eat it today for lunch!!!!!!! I added scallions, cheese, and sour cream for toppings! So good so healthy!!!!
