IMG_0408This is a delicious spin on chili! It’s rich, a little sweet, and super flavorful. This is a great dish to make and enjoy effortlessly all week long. It also satisfies that comfort food craving.

Ingredients:

  • 1lb ground turkey
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • salt and pepper
  • 3 cups chicken broth (plus extra for reheating)
  • 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
  • Small can diced tomatoes (optional)
  • 15 oz can baked beans (I like sweet baked beans)
  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa, rinsed
  • 1 large sweet potato (about 1lb,) peeled and chopped small
  • 2 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon red chili pepper flakes

Toppings: shredded cheese, onion, avocado etc.

Add ground turkey and onion to a large skillet over medium-high IMG_0411heat. Season liberally with salt and pepper then cook until no longer pink, breaking turkey up as it cooks. Add garlic and cook a little longer, then put in a 6 quart crock pot. Add remaining ingredients, except toppings, into crock pot then cook on high for 3 hours, or low for 5-6 hours, or until sweet potatoes are tender. Serve with toppings. You can add more chicken broth when reheating.
