Turkey and Sweet Potato Chili

Recipe from StrongerTogether.coop.

Sweet potatoes are a tasty way to add important nutrients to your diet like vitamin A, fiber and even protein. Substitute your favorite sausage, ground meat or meatless alternative if you prefer. 

Prep Time

20 minutes

Cook Time

30 minutes


6 Servings


2 tablespoons canola oil
1⁄2 pound sausage, turkey (casings removed)
1 onion, yellow (chopped)
1 bell pepper, red (seeded and chopped)
3 potato, sweet (chopped into small pieces)
2 cloves garlic (minced)
1 tomato, diced (14.5 oz can, fire-roasted, undrained)
2 cups stock, chicken
1 cup water
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon cumin
1⁄2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
15 ounces beans, cannellini (15 oz can, drained and rinsed)


Warm oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add sausage; break up any large chunks and sauté until no pink remains. Using a slotted spoon, transfer meat to a bowl; cover. Add onion, bell pepper and sweet potato to pot and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 6 minutes. Add garlic and sauté for 1 minute. Return meat to pot.

Stir in tomatoes, beans, broth, water, spices and salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and stir in beans. Cover and simmer until chili thickens slightly, about 30 minutes. Season with additional salt and pepper to taste.
