Sweet Potato Turkey Chili

I love making big meals on Sundays that will last for a few days. I’m traveling to Iowa Monday and Tuesday for work and Wednesday is my long day, so a big pot of chili is perfect and something I can have Wednesday night.

This specific chili is Paleo friendly and super easy to make!


2 lbs of ground turkey (feel free to substitute beef or chicken)

1 onion

3 cloves garlic 

1 cup diced carrots

4-6 sweet potatoes, peeled and diced 

2 cans of diced tomatoes (I love spice so I used the one with chili and jalapeños)

2 cans of tomato sauce 

1/2 tsp thyme 

1/8 cup of chili powder

Salt, pepper, red pepper flakes and oregano to taste


2 bay leaves 


In a large pot, heat some oil (I used olive oil)

Combine onion, ground turkey, and garlic. Cook until meat is no longer pink.

Combine the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil. Then simmer for 20 – 30 minutes covered, or until sweet potato is tender!

Note: My boyfriend and I love spice, so we added some Frontera Chiptole Salsa 🙂
