Chipotle Turkey Chili with Sweet Potatoes and Black Beans
Serve this chili with an assortment of toppings such as cheese, sour cream, sliced radishes, cilantro, chopped scallions and diced avocado for a crowd pleasing meal. I love the way the smoky chipotle pairs with the sweet potato and black beans, it’s a match made in Heaven!
To make this #dinnerdoneby9am I fully assemble the chili in the morning, refrigerate all day, then reheat just prior to serving.

Heat oil in medium pot over medium heat. Add onion and bell pepper, saute until they begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Add turkey, cook, breaking up with a wooden spoon until it is cooked through, about 10-15 minutes. Drain off fat. Add garlic and continue to cook, stirring often, for 1 minute. Add remaining ingredients, bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until sweet potatoes are tender, about 20-30 minutes. Serve with desired toppings.
