This Healthy & Easy Turkey Sweet Potato Chili can be made in your instant pot, slow cooker, or on the stove. Made with clean ingredients and ready in no time. It’s the perfect fall or winter chili recipe!
As soon as the temperatures start to drop, my body is like “Give me all the comfort food!!” Anyone else?
Chili will always remind me of cozy fall and winter days which is why I knew I needed a turkey and sweet potato chili recipe on the blog.
I already have White Chicken Chili recipe on Hello Spoonful, but wanted something a bit more hearty!
This healthy turkey chili with sweet potatoes, black beans, kidney beans, peppers, crushed tomatoes, and all the best spices really hit the nail on the head for me!
Then again, I’m down for anything involving sweet potatoes. Vegan Sweet Potato Pasta Sauce, Chocolate Chip Sweet Potato Muffins, Sweet Potato Breakfast Cookies… you could say I’m a sweet potato addict. #NoShame
I was initially going to make this turkey sweet potato chili in my crockpot, but the instant pot (or pressure cooker) is all the rage right now so I opted to make it instant pot, stovetop, AND slow cooker friendly!
Just in case you all don’t have all these gadgets at home, ya know?
I will say, I’m obsessed with my Multi-Pot Express Crockpot because it acts like a slow cooker and a pressure cooker. AKA it takes up way less space in our cabinet than having both appliances.
I’ve used my Multi-Pot Express Crockpot to make this Healthy 20 Minute Risotto, 5 Ingredient Honey Garlic Chicken, 5 Ingredient Buffalo Chicken, and so much more! Just search “crockpot” on my site and you’ll see a laundry list of recipes to make. 🙂
This isn’t sponsored either. I just genuinely love it.
My personal favorite way to make this Healthy Turkey Sweet Potato Chili is by using the pressure cooker setting on my Multi-Cooker.
The chili can be made in just one pot this way which makes for super easy clean-up.
You’ll start by using the saute setting on your instant pot to saute your onions and garlic. Next, you’ll add your turkey and brown it using the same setting. After that, you simply add the rest of the ingredients to the same pot. It couldn’t be easier!
This is also the quickest way to make your turkey chili, but if an instant pot isn’t available, your stovetop or slow cooker will work just as well!
To make this Healthy Turkey Sweet Potato Chili in your slow cooker, you will instead saute your onions and garlic on a skillet. Next, you’ll add your turkey to the skillet until it begins to brown. Lastly, you will add all of your ingredients (from the stove and on your ingredient list) to your crockpot and cook on low for 4-6 hours.
This is a great method if you’re heading off to work and want your slow cooker to do the work for you while you’re away.
I love coming home to the delicious smells steaming from my crockpot when I walk through the door.
It’s such a warm welcome!
