Sweet Potato and Turkey Chili

I have started the new year eating clean.  I found this great chili that is clean.  I was a little nervous using sweet potatoes in a chili.  Just couldn't imagine a sweet chili.  Plus, my husband doesn't like them.  I didn't tell him what was in it until he had a few bites.  We couldn't taste the typical sweet potato flavor at all.

1 small onion
2 cloves garlic
1 14.5 oz can fire roasted tomatoes with juice
1 15 oz can black beans
2 cups sweet potatoes
1 lb turkey breast, ground
1 bayleaf
3/4 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp oregano
1/8 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp coarse grind pepper
2 tbsp chili powder
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1.5 cup water

This recipe is very simple to make.  Cutting the potatoes and onions takes the longest.  I did this the night before and stored them in the fridge to save time in the morning before work.

Chop the onions also.

Put all of the veggies in the bottom of the slow cooker.

Top the vegetables with the raw ground turkey, spices and water.  You can vary the spices to make it as spicy as you like.  I am a wimp.  So I only used 1T of chili powder and no cayenne pepper.  ;)

Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.

We had a couple friends and family members over to play board games, and I served this chili.  It was a hit!  I highly recommend it!!
