Description

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. 

Ingredients

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)

Instructions

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.
