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)
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 🙂
