  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 sweet onion diced
  • 5-7 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 lbs ground turkey
  • 28 oz petite diced tomatoes canned
  • 16 oz tomato sauce canned
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 large sweet potato 1-inch cubed (~12 oz)
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste


  • 1/4 cup cilantro chopped
  • 1/3 cup cheddar cheese shredded
  • 2 avocado sliced


  • In a large pot, add olive oil, diced onions and minced garlic. Saute under medium heat for 1-2 minutes or until fragrant.
  • Add ground turkey to pot, break up the ground turkey if it is clump together. Sprinkle one or two pinches of salt and pepper to turkey. Cook until turkey is almost done (no longer red/pink).
  • Add diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, chicken broth, diced sweet potatoes, chili powder, smoked paprika, ground cumin and sugar to pot. Bring to a boil, then lower to medium heat, and cook for another 15 minutes, or until sweet potatoes are soft and can easily be pierced with a fork. 
  • Add frozen corn. Bring heat to medium high, cook for another few minutes until liquid comes to a boil again. Add salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat.
  • Serve by dividing chili into a few bowls, and garnish with all or some of the garnish ingredients! We recommend garnishing with at least one or two of them. Enjoy!
