Turkey Chili with Black Beans and Sweet Potatoes – Fit Armadillo

Turkey Chili with Black Beans and Sweet Potatoes

Just in time for the “cold spell” that’s landed in Houston, we’ve cooked up our latest What’s for Dinner? Wednesday meal: Turkey Chili with Black Beans and Sweet Potatoes. Use your crock pot and spend less than 10 minutes on dinner. Our recommendation? Throw all your ingredients in your crock pot in the morning and set it to 8 hrs on low and come home to the delicious smell of your dinner.  Short on time? You can also cook this chili up in 4 hrs with a high setting.

Gather these ingredients:
1 small yellow onion
2 cloves garlic
1 14.5 oz can tomatoes
1 15 oz can black beans
2 cups sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 lb lean ground turkey
1 bay leaf
3/4 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp each of oregano, ground pepper,  and cayenne pepper
pinch of sea salt
2 tbsp chili powder
1.5 cup water
How to make it (Hint: so easy!)

Step One: Get out your crock pot (if you don’t have one, buy one already! it has been a real life-changer for us).Step Two: Find a can opener and get out your tomatoes and black beans and add them to the pot. Prep yoursweet potatoes, garlic, and onion, and add them before covering your veggies with your turkey, spices, and water.

Step Three: Cover your crock pot and set it to cook on low for eight hours or four hours on high if you’re really pressed for time.

Step Four: Check in on your dinner for a taste test about 20 minutes before it’s time to serve and adjust your spices if necessary.  Then give it a stir.

Step Five:  Serve your delicious fall-inspired chili!
