Turkey Sweet Potato Chili!
I never liked sweet potatoes until I became a food blogger and discovered savory sweet potato recipes. Now I love things like Spicy Sweet Potato Fries, Twice-Baked Sweet Potatoes, and Sweet Potato Gratin, and I often have sweet potatoes in the pantry at my house. One day I was brainstorming recipe ideas with my niece Kara, and she remembered seeing a recipe that used sweet potatoes in chili. We both loved that idea, which led to the Paleo Turkey Sweet Potato Chili you see here. We experimented with ingredients and loved the slightly-spicy turkey chili we came up with.
Later when I edited the photos of our Paleo Turkey Sweet Potato Chili, I googled my proposed recipe title and realized there were quite a few recipes out there for chili with sweet potatoes! Luckily it seems like every blogger has a slightly different take on this combination; check after my recipe to see some other blogs that like the idea of sweet potatoes with chili as much as we did!

- This chili is easy enough to make on a work night, although it benefits from an hour of simmering once you’ve added all the ingredients. Brown the turkey and put in the soup pot.
- Then saute the chopped green pepper, chopped onion, and spices in the same pan.
- Put that mixture in the soup pot along with the petite diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, chicken stock, canned green chiles, and Green Tabasco.
- Start to simmer the chili on low while you chop up the sweet potato.
- Add sweet potato to the chili and simmer on low for an hour, adding a little water if it gets too thick.
- Season Paleo Turkey Sweet Potato Chili to taste with Green Tabasco Sauce (affiliate link), salt, and pepper; then serve hot and enjoy!

Low-Carb Diet / Low-Glycemic Diet / South Beach Diet Suggestions:
If made with lean ground turkey, this Paleo Turkey Sweet Potato Chili would be approved for phase 2 or 3 of the South Beach Diet and is also Paleo. Chili with sweet potatoes is probably too high in carbs for traditional low-carb diet plans.
