When you have an extra sweet potato laying around, and you already thawed some ground turkey for your meal prep this week, you find a way to put them together!

When it’s freezing outside I always crave warm meals. So soup and chili and two of my go-to meals during the winter! I was craving a warm, hearty chili, so I started doing some searching and found this amazing recipe for sweet potato turkey chili here.

I searched through my cabinets to see what I had on hand (I really did not want to go to the grocery store), and make a few changes to the recipe. And it turned out amazing!

So here’s my tweaked version of the recipe:

Sweet Potato Turkey Chili

  • Servings: 5
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

  • 20oz of 93% lean ground turkey
  • One 14.5oz can of diced tomatoes
  • One 15.5oz can of reduced sodium black beans
  • 3 cups of diced sweet potato (about one medium)
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 2tbsp minced onion seasoning
  • 3/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2 tbsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1.5 cups of water


  1. Pour the tomatoes (with liquid) and beans (slightly drained) into a crockpot.
  2. Add in the sweet potato and then raw ground turkey. Make sure the ground turkey is broken up into pieces or else it will cook in one large chunk.
  3. Add all of the rest of the ingredients on top and then pour in the water.
  4. Cook on high for 4 hours. Stir your chili thoroughly, making sure to break up any large chunks of turkey. Then let it cook on low for about 45 minutes.
  5. Serve immediately or portion out into 5 containers.
