Sweet Potato Chili

Round out the spice of this robust chili with the balancing taste of sweet potatoes. If you normally enjoy your chili with sour cream, try substituting plain, non-fat Greek yogurt for a more nutritious condiment.

Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 lb. ground turkey
  • 2 Chipotle peppers, chopped
  • 1 (15 oz.) can no-salt-added whole peeled tomatoes
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1 Tbsp. chili powder
  • 3 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 lb. sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1 (15 oz.) can no-salt-added pinto beans, drained
  • 1 (15 oz.) can no-salt-added chickpeas, drained
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced

Directions

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large Dutch oven. Add turkey and cook until well browned. Remove the cooked meat, pouring off most of the fat.
  2. Process chipotles and tomatoes together until smooth.
  3. Add onion to Dutch oven and sauté until soft. Add garlic, cumin and chili powder and cook for about 30 seconds. Add chipotle mixture. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer, and cook until the liquid thickens.
  4. Add stock and return to a simmer. Return the turkey and stir in sweet potatoes and beans. Add salt and cook until sweet potatoes are tender. Serve warm, garnished with scallions.
