Slow Cooker Turkey and Sweet Potato Chili
with avocados, tortilla chips and sour cream
- Ground turkey, lean - 1 lb
- Cornstarch (opt) - 1 Tbsp
- Garlic - 3 cloves, minced
- Onions, medium - 1, diced
- Sweet potatoes - 1 lb, diced
- Cilantro - 2 Tbsp, chopped
- Oil, cooking - 1 1/2 Tbsp
- Crushed tomatoes - 1 cup
- Cumin - 1 1/2 tsp
- Paprika - 1 tsp
- Chili powder - 1/2 tsp
- Salt - 1 tsp
- Stock, chicken - 1 1/2 cups
- Avocados - 1, cubed
- Sour cream - for serving on chili
- Tortilla chips (opt) - for serving with chili
- If slow cooking, heat up a skillet or saute pan over medium-high heat (if not slow cooking, heat up a Dutch oven). Add cooking oil and then garlic and onions with a dash of salt to heated oil. Saute until softened, ~3 minutes.
- Fold in turkey and use a wooden spoon to break up into bits. Cook until brown, 5 to 7 minutes.
- If slow cooking, transfer to slow cooker. Add in crushed tomatoes, cumin, paprika, chili powder, salt, chicken stock, and sweet potatoes and cook on low for 7 to 8 hours or high for 3 to 4 hours. (If not slow cooking, add all the same ingredients into the Dutch oven, cover, and bring to a boil. Then simmer uncovered for ~20 minutes.)
- Cube avocado.
- Once chili is done, season to taste with salt, pepper, any more of the spices, or dig into your condiments. Portion into bowls and let everyone top with cilantro, avocado and sour cream. Scoop with tortilla chips if using.
Added a can of black beans and some butternut squash we had in the fridge. It was pretty good but I think the ground turkey needed to be seasoned with chili/cumin etc before going into the slow cooker.0 Helpful

Nothing special, may double spices next time but very easy to put together and will try again.0 Helpful
Love the sweet/salty combination of the chili with tortilla chips. Wonderful for cooler weather and my boyfriend loves it. Great source of lean protein as well.0 Helpful
