Whole30 Crockpot Sweet Potato Chili


I have made at least five or six versions of this chili, using other recipes for inspiration and guidance. This week I finally put this together without referencing a single recipe, and just taking what [I think] are my favorite elements from the previous versions. I do not consider myself a recipe creator, but every so often I manage to put together something “original” that is pretty damn good!

1 lb ground beef
1 lb ground turkey
1 large red onion, diced
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 green bell pepper, diced
2 sweet potatoes, cut into one-inch pieces
1, 28 oz can diced tomatoes
1, 28 oz can tomato sauce
1, 4 oz can green chiles
1, 16 oz jar salsa
2 cups compliant beef, chicken or vegetable broth

1 tbsp chili powder
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp onion powder
2 tbsp cumin
1/2 tsp cayenne
Salt and pepper to taste

Brown your meat in a pan, stirring frequently. If you feel like it, add 1/2 tsp onion powder and 1/2 tsp garlic powder for added flavor, like I did! Once your meat is browned, drain it and set aside in your pan or a bowl. Now add all vegetables to your Crockpot, top with meat and seasoning and stir to blend well. Cook on high for 5 – 6 hours, or until potatoes are fork tender. If you find it too thick, add a cup of beef or vegetable broth at the end, or a few tablespoons of either when serving.

Serve topped with fresh cilantro, guacamole, or roasted cashews (instead of tortilla chips) for some crunch and to keep it Whole30.

I hope you enjoy this! I’d love to hear what you guys think!
