Turkey, Sweet Potato, & Butternut Squash Chili

sweet potato chiliIngredients:

  • 1 lb. ground turkey
  • 1 medium or large sweet potato, peeled, cubed
  • 1 cup butternut squash, cubed or diced (I used frozen, already cut)
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped red pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 cup water or vegetable stock (I used a little of both, homemade stock)
  • spices: red pepper flakes, cumin, chili powder, black pepper, salt, hot sauce)

Directions:

1. In a pot, saute the onions, garlic, and peppers for a few minutes.
2. Add the sweet potato (it will take awhile to cook) and cook for another 5 minutes.
3. Add the ground turkey and cook until the meat is browned.
4. Add the butternut squash, tomatoes, and rest of the ingredients, including the water/broth. Cook for 15 minutes.
5. Add the spices, and cook for a final 10 minutes.

Note: This is a paleo recipe. Makes 6-8 servings.
