Turkey Sweet Potato Chili Recipe

This Whole30 chili friendly recipe has just the right amount of spice to compliment the sweet potatoes without being too spicy for those of you who prefer a milder chili (you can of course bump up the heat if you wish). A quick chili ready in under 30 minutes. If you love chili as much as me, you may also enjoy this Quick Beef Chili Recipe or my most popular Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Chili.

How To Make This No Bean Turkey Sweet Potato Chili Recipe

This is one of my favorite chili recipes I make all year once the weather gets cold. You can swap the sweet potato for butternut squash if you wish.

I have provided both stove top and pressure cooker directions if you have an Instant Pot (this is the one I have) afilliate link. Either way you make it, it’s a quick chili recipe.

For topping you can serve it with chopped cilantro, scallions, sour cream and cheddar on the side. Since this has no beans, it’s perfect for picky eaters (my youngest daughter is not a fan) and it’s also gluten-free, Whole30 and Paleo-friendly. It freezes well and makes a great lunch if you have leftovers!

  1. I make this recipe probably twice a month, and finally had to comment and say thank you to Gina! It is such a nourishing, comforting meal. I always double it so it can feed my family of 5 and I can have leftovers throughout the week (I especially love having it the next day with a fried egg on top!). I love everything about it. Usually I’ll end up browning the turkey, onion and garlic the night before then dumping everything in a crock pot the next day. Turns out great with minimal effort.
