How do you make this Slow Cooker Sweet Potato Turkey Chili?

Trust me when I tell you this recipe is so easy! I even made it last week while wearing my 5 week old baby. Basically cook up your ground turkey in a skillet and season it well with salt and pepper. Toss the cooked turkey directly into your slow cooker along with all other ingredients. Put the lid on, set your cook time and walk away. Yep, it’s that easy!

This Chili also lasts for about 4-5 days in the fridge, so it makes for a great meal prep recipe! Simply re-heat on the stove or in the microwave for lunch or dinner the next day, add your toppings and dig in!

    The flavors in this were delicious! So easy to prepare and cook all day ! My husband loved it ! I felt there was too much liquid more like a soup than a chili any advice on adjusting that ?

      Hi Elle! I’m so happy you enjoyed it! Maybe your sweet potato was smaller than mine, that’s the only thing I can think of– I think I will adjust the recipe to say 3-4 cups and you can always add more if needed!
