- 1 lbs. of ground turkey(94% lean) - 1 can of diced tomatoes(large) - 1 medium yellow onion – diced - 1 to 2 small sweet potatoes( diced) - 1x can of black beans(drained and rinsed) - 1x can of white kidney beans(drained and rinsed) - ½ cup of water - 1 tbls. of cumin - 1 tbls. of chili powder - 1 tbls. of Rooster sauce(found in Asian section of every grocery store) - Salt & pepper to taste Optional Add ins- 1x pepper(green or red) - 1 to 2x shredded carrots(with cheese grater or by hand) ** I add these *** - ½ can of adobo chili sauce - 1 to 2 tbls. of agave nectar - 1x can of tomato paste(I add this in mine)
Brown the turkey meat in a skillet, until cooked through- about 5 to 7 minutes on medium to high heat. Then add in the onion and the sweet potatoes to the skillet, cook for about 5 minutes. Next, throw all the kids (all the ingredients) into a large pot or your slow cooker. I usually cook the chili for atleast four hours on low in the slow cooker (crockpot) or 3 hours on the stove at low heat. Sometimes, I will make the chili in the morning, and leave it on all day (for about six hours) and it taste fantastic as well! This usually serves atleast two meals- dinner and lunch the next day for two people! We eat it with corn tortilla chips or my boyfriend loves his with pretzels!
