Turkey, Sweet Potato, and Bean Chili

Are you ready for a new recipe? This is one of my favorite chili recipes!  I grew up eating lots and lots of chili and I have found that this recipe is a nice variation from the typical chili recipes.  It is healthy too!

And Gluten Free!!

This recipe is from the Food Network website.

Turkey, Sweet Potato & Bean Chili

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 pound extra lean ground turkey
  • 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon each ground cumin and coriander
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken stock
  • 1 can each of black and red kidney beans (I used pinto beans)
  • salt and freshly ground pepper


Turkey, Sweet Potato & Bean Chili

  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the turkey and cook, breaking it up well with a wooden spoon, until no longer pink, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the sweet potatoes, onions and garlic, and cook, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes. Add seasonings, from the chili powder to the red pepper flakes, if using, and cook for 1 minute. Add the tomatoes with their juice and the chicken broth. Bring mixture to a simmer, cover the pan, and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Meanwhile, rinse and drain the beans. Set aside.
  3. Remove the cover, stir in the beans and simmer mixture until the potatoes are completely tender and the chili has thickened, about 20 minutes. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper. Serve chili in bowls and allow each person to choose their own garnishes from the chili bar.
