Slow Cooker Sweet Potato Chili
  1. 1 cup diced yellow onion (about half a large onion)
  2. 1.25 lbs ground turkey (dark meat is best but white is ok too!)
  3. 1 tsp sea salt
  4. 1 large red or yellow bell pepper, diced
  5. 2 medium carrots, sliced (about 1 cup)
  6. 3 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
  7. 2 cloves garlic, minced
  8. 28-oz organic diced tomatoes (include liquid puree)
  9. 28-oz organic tomato sauce
  10. 1 cup chicken stock
  11. 2-3 tbsp chili powder (depending on how spicy you like it)
  12. 1 tbsp of all-purpose herb seasoning
  13. 1 bay leaf (don’t eat this, it’s just for flavoring while cooking!)
  14. 3/4 tsp sea salt
  15. small zucchini, cubed (about 2 cups)
  16. Optional Toppings: diced green onions and diced avocado, sprinkle of low-fat cheese
  1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, sauté the onion in one tablespoon of olive oil for 1-2 minutes, until fragrant. Then add the ground turkey and sprinkle with one teaspoon sea salt. Continue to cook until meat is cooked through.
  2. Add the meat mixture to a slow cooker. Then add all of the remaining ingredients, except the zucchini. Stir well to combine.
  3. Cover and cook on High for 5-6 hours or on low for 7-8 hours. Be sure to add the cubed zucchini during the last hour of cook time, if using.
  4. When ready, remove bay leaf and re-season to taste with additional chili powder and salt. Top with diced avocado, sliced green onions and sprinkle of low-fat cheese.
