Smoky Turkey and Sweet Potato Chili

This is so tasty, easy to make and full of healthy benefits!


  • 1 pound ground turkey

  • 1 large red onion, chopped (about 2 cups)

  • 2 medium green bell peppers, seeded and chopped (about 2 cups)

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced (about 1 Tbsp.)

  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1/2-in. cubes (about 1 1/2 cups)

  • 2 tablespoons chopped canned chipotle pepper in adobo sauce

  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste

  • 1 12-oz. bottle Belgian white ale (such as Blue Moon)

  • 3 cups unsalted chicken broth

  • 1 15-oz. can low-sodium red kidney beans, drained and rinsed

  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika

  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar


1. Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add turkey and cook, stirring often, until browned, 5 to 6 minutes. Transfer turkey to a plate, reserving drippings in Dutch oven.

2. Reduce heat to medium. Add onion, bell peppers, garlic, and remaining 1 tablespoon oil to Dutch oven; cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender, about 8 minutes. Stir in sweet potato, chipotle, and tomato paste; cook, stirring often, for 1 minute.

3. Increase heat to high and add ale. Bring to a boil, stirring to loosen browned bits from bottom of Dutch oven. Cook until reduced by half, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in turkey, broth, kidney beans, salt, and paprika; return to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until liquid has slightly reduced and sweet potato is tender, about 30 minutes.

Stir in vinegar.
