Sweet Potato Turkey Chili

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 1½ lbs. ground turkey breast
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasoning
  • 3 sweet potatoes, chopped into small pieces (I left the peel on)
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 cups water
  • 2-3 cups broth (start with 2)
  • 1 14-ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne for spice
  • salt, to taste
  • optional: avocado, cilantro, sour cream, quinoa, cheese

Directions

  1. Heat the oil over medium high heat in a heavy, deep pot. Add the onion, turkey, 1 tablespoon chili powder, and 1 tablespoon taco seasoning.
  2. When the turkey is browned and crumbled and the onions are soft, remove from the pan and set aside.
  3. Add the sweet potatoes to the same pot with the remaining spices and stir to combine. When the sweet potatoes have browned just slightly, add the garlic, water, and broth. Bring to a low boil and simmer for 10 minutes or so, until the sweet potatoes are very soft (you can check the softness by poking with a fork).
  4. Using an immersion blender or a regular blender, puree the mixture until it reaches your desired consistency.
  5. Add the browned turkey, black beans, cayenne, and cooked quinoa (if using) - stir to combine. Add chicken broth or water to thin out (I used chicken broth).
  6. Season with salt to taste.
  7. Top with desired toppings and enjoy!
