How To Make No Bean Turkey Sweet Potato Chili

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.

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!
