This Turkey and Sweet Potato Chili is sure to become a family favorite. It uses turkey instead of beef, which cuts down on fat while maintaining plenty of protein and flavor. High-fiber sweet potatoes, which are considered a superfood, add nutrients like iron, vitamin B, and vitamin C to the chili making it a welcome addition to any health-conscious meal plan.

 

The combination of spicy chipotle powder and sweet potatoes is really unique! If you don’t care for spicy food, you can minimize the spiciness by adjusting the amount of chipotle powder used.

Pro Tips…

This recipe can be “changed up” by using regular or fire-roasted diced and crushed tomatoes. Fire roasted tomatoes will give your chili a sweet and smoky flavor.

 

Black beans can be added, if desired, to give this chili some extra protein and color.

 

Reduce or increase the broth depending on how thick you like your chili.
