  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1 small sweet onion coarsely chopped
  • 1 lb ground turkey I used 93/7
  • 4 c sweet potatoes peeled and cut into ½-inch cubes
  • 2 T chili powder
  • 2 t cumin
  • 1 t paprika can use smoked paprika if you prefer
  • 2 t salt
  • ¾ t pepper
  • 1/8 t cinnamon
  • 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 c chicken broth or water
  • 1-15 oz can sweet whole kernel corn drained
  • 1-15 oz can black beans drained
  • Corn chips optional
  • Cilantro optional
  • Sour cream optional
  • Cooked rice optional


  1. In a large saucepan, or large shallow pot, drizzle olive oil. Add onions and saute over medium heat for 2-3 minutes.
  2. Push onions to the side and add ground turkey. Continue cooking over medium heat for 6-8 minutes, or until turkey is almost cooked through.
  3. Add sweet potatoes and saute for another 2 minutes.
  4. In a small bowl combine chili powder, cumin, paprika, cinnamon, salt and pepper. Mix to combine.
  5. Pour crushed tomatoes, chicken broth and pre-mixed seasoning ingredients into the chili mixture. Mix chili thoroughly and reduce heat to a simmer.
  6. Cover pot and simmer for 20-25 minutes.
  7. Add drained corn and black beans. Cover and simmer for an additional 5-10 minutes.
  8. Check to see if sweet potatoes are fork-tender before serving. If you would like a slightly thicker chili, mash some of the sweet potatoes to help thicken it.
  9. Serve chili over rice with corn chips, cilantro and sour cream and enjoy!
