Sweet Potato and Turkey Chili

Smokey Sweet Potato & Turkey Chili

This warm weather is really throwing me off! Instead of craving my usual soups and warm creamy dishes- I’ve been eating a lot of fresh veggies and stir fries. Last week, we finally got a taste of “normal” winter weather and I was inspired just long enough to come up with a yummy new chili recipe! There is lots of protein and fiber from the turkey and black beans- and tons of yummy sweetness and vitamins from the sweet potatoes. The chipotle powder adds a great smokiness and the green chilies contribute the perfect amount of spice! Lets hope that we get some cold weather soon because this chili is the PERFECT, EASY meal for a cold winter night! This meal literally took me 10 minutes to throw together and it is perfect for making in large batches and throwing in the freezer.
