sweet potato turkey chili

say hello to our new go-to easy winter dinner. 
i made our own version of this healthy 
sweet potato turkey chili last week, 
and it's a keeper for sure. 
bonus, it's super healthy and even 
qualifies for the paleo diets..
{not that we would ever be capable of being so disciplined..but some of you are!}

  • lean ground turkey {20 oz. package, uncooked}
  • salt sprinkles, to taste
  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 10 oz. can rotel mild tomatoes with green chilies
  • 8 oz can tomato sauce
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 medium large sweet potato, peeled and diced into cubes
  • sour cream, for topping {optional}

in a large pot, brown the turkey over medium-high heat, breaking it up as it cooks. season with salt sprinkles.

once the ground turkey is cooked through and browned, add onion and garlic into the pot. cook this for 3 minutes over medium heat, stirring occasionally. add in the can of rotel tomatoes, sweet potato cubes, tomato sauce, water, and some grinds of salt.

cover the pot and let it simmer over medium-low heat. leave it cooking for 25 minutes, stirring once in a while until sweet potatoes soften and cook through. you can add a touch more water if needed, but ours didn't need it.

serve and enjoy a few bowls since it's so healthy!
