Turkey and Sweet Potato Crockpot Chili

2.11.20

This Turkey and Sweet Potato Chili makes for the perfect healthy meal on a cold winter day! It’s made in the crockpot and can be enjoyed for lunch and dinner throughout the week!

I’ve made chili almost every week this winter. I never get sick of it. I love having a healthy meal prepped in the fridge all week long that I can bring to work with me or have for lunch or dinner after running errands all day. It’s so easy to make too- everything just gets thrown into the crockpot for 4 hours and then it’s done! I alternate between this chili recipe and my Turkey and Quinoa Crockpot Chili– they’re very similar!

My Turkey and Sweet Potato Crockpot Chili is full of flavor and has a ton of nutritional benefits:

  • Sweet potatoes are full of Vitamin A and Vitamin C
  • Ground turkey is a great option for lean protein. Ground chicken can also be substituted in this recipe if you prefer!
  • Black beans are a great source of fiber and protein
  • and finally- tomatoes! Tomatoes are also full of Vitamin A and C.

Now onto toppings. My favorite ones include avocado, plain greek yogurt (substituted for sour cream), and a few chips for some crunch! I also like my chili extra spicy so I drizzle some sriracha on top too! What are your favorite chili toppings?
