I think it’s safe to say we are done with summer weather! Stay warm this weekend with a delish and healthy Chili recipe- this one has been tested by all of us, I highly recommend you double it because you will want the leftovers! – Sweet Potato Turkey Chili – Yield: 4-6 servings – 1lb ground turkey 1 lg yellow onion, diced 3 cloves minced garlic 1 jalapeño diced 1 large sweet potato, peeled and diced into 1 in. Cubes 1 1/2 tablespoons mild chili powder 1/2 tablespoon paprika 2 cans fire roasted tomatoes 1 can diced green chilies 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed 1.5+ cups low sodium chicken stock- this depends on how thick you like it – Heat olive oil in large pot, sauté onions and garlic until slightly golden. Add diced jalapeño, chile powder and paprika. Add ground turkey, breaking up with a wooden spoon until it’s cooked through. Add tomatoes, green chiles, sweet potato and beans. Mix everything to combine then add chicken stock, enough to cover the chili. Season to taste with salt and pepper. At this point let it simmer on the stove for one hour or transfer to a crock pot and cook on high for 3-4 hours. ~enjoy! #bmf
