  • 1 lb. ground white turkey
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup yellow onion diced
  • 1 green pepper diced
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 large sweet potato peeled and diced
  • 1/3 cup tomato sauce*
  • 1 can 14.5 oz. diced tomatoes
  • 32 oz. chicken broth
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp chipotle powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • NOTE: you can make this in the crock pot if you prefer! Simply add ALL the ingredients and cook on low for 7-8 hours.
  • To make on the stove: add turkey, oil, onion, and pepper to a large skillet or dutch oven over medium heat and stir occasionally until turkey is cooked. Then, add the garlic and sweet potato and stir for 1 minute.
  • Next, add tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, broth, and spices to the skillet, stir, then place lid on top and reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer chili for 15-20 minutes or until potatoes are cooked.
  • Serve chili with avocado and enjoy!
