Turkey Sweet Potato Chili ~ delicious ground (or leftover) turkey chili with bites of sweet potatoes, black beans, tomatoes, corn, bell pepper, onion and bold spices.
The level of intensity of a chili connoisseur when discussing chili preferences always amazes me. Beans, no beans. Meat ~ what kind? Do real men eat chili made with . . . ahem . . .turkey? And if they do, will their man card be automatically and immediately revoked?
There are, however a few guidelines most of us can agree upon. First, chili should pack heat. Serious heat and second, it should be thick, not wimpy; otherwise, it’s just soup.
From there the sky or (chili) pot is the limit. In my book, chili must have beans with the exception of the kind that blankets a hot dog. In that case, no beans.
So go forth, slice up some jalapenos, add a protein, some vegetables and yes, beans. I beg of you. Beyond that, live your best chili life designing or redesigning this recipe as you like.
