sweet potato turkey chili

sweet potato chilii’m a little chili
Chili is one of my favorite foods. It’s been a while since I’ve made this so I decided to add this to the menu for my Mexican date night with Dave. For this one I incorporated sweet potatoes and it was also extra spicy. Dave said this was possibly the best batch I’ve ever made but I personally would’ve preferred less spiciness although it was pretty delicious. I made this one on the crockpot and had it stewing for a good 6 hours… the smell of chili all day long was a bit torturous though.

1 package (20 oz) lean ground turkey
1 can pinto beans
1 can diced tomato
1 can tomato sauce
1 medium sweet potato, cubed
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp cumin
1 tsp cayenne
2 tsp salt

Cook the ground turkey in a skillet. Once that’s done, add all ingredients into the crockpot and let it cook for 6 hours. Add more or less salt and cayenne to preferred taste.

For the beans you can use canned beans or raw beans. I’ve used both previously but this time I used raw beans. I soaked the beans in water overnight (enough water so it’s completely submerged). The next day I cooked the beans on medium heat for about 25 minutes, I added the beans and the water it was soaking in overnight to a large pan with another 2 cups of water. I added this to the crockpot but you will only need to add about half of the bag of beans.

The day after I made the chili I was still fiending for it so I decided to make an egg waffle and added the chili over it… so delicious!
