Sweet Potato Turkey Chili

Um, yum…

Sweet Potato Turkey Chili | No Thanks to Cake

This dish is on the list of new favorites.  I made it after seeing that Erin and Alan had made this dish and hearing them rave about it on Instagram… I just had to try it.

It was the perfect chili for me because it doesn’t have any beans.  In most recipes, I just leave them out… but this recipe was bean-less by design!  Perfect!  And, the idea of putting sweet potatoes in the chili… it’s GENIUS!  It makes the dish even more hearty than your average chili and more comforting on a cold day.

I loved it so much, I made a SECOND batch this weekend as part of my weekly food prep..

  1. That sounds so yummy!! Gina’s recipes are just the best! If I substitute and use the 99% lean turkey, it would work for me on the Simply Filling plan for Weight Watchers, too. This recipe is definitely going on the “to do” list. :)

    I must say, this looks absolutely delicious. Is it bad to admit I’ve never even had sweet potato :O
