Sweet Potato And Ground Turkey Chili
This bean-free chili has tons of flavor and heartiness from the ground turkey, vegetables, and sweet potato. The spices aren’t too strong, so it’s kid friendly as well. As delicious as this chili is, the leftovers almost seem to taste better than the first serving. It is perfect for potlucks, weeknight meals, or anytime you want something easy, hearty, and delicious.
