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. This recipe is very good/tasty and healthy – we have been using in a weekly food prep rotation and everyone loves it so it is not getting rotated out 🙂

  2. Love this in the work lunch rotation!! It is so easy to make and freezes so well!!
    I also like to add a can of green chilies, mushrooms and some red pepper flakes for a little extra kick!

  3. My husband asks me to make this meal over and over again. Definitely a favorite in our house! Thank you for sharing!

  4. Taste great nice warming meal for this time of the year. Easy to make. I made it in the Insta pot so good.

  5. This. Was. Delicious.
    I was surfing for a good Turkey / sweet potato chilli and this hit the spot. I added a can of black beans. I’ll definitely make this again.

  6. I have been on a sweet potato kick lately and this was delicious! I made a few minor changes, I used garam masala and authentic Indian curry powder made by my former m-i-t. I also roasted the sweet potatoes first and added a can of black beans. We loved it so much that I made it again the next week. Definitely a keeper!!

    Whenever I remember to make this chili, it is always a hit. Because I like the nutritional value of beans, I usually add a rinsed can of black or kidney and generally I am heavy handed with the spices. This is easy to assemble, smells marvelous, tastes terrific, and freezes well in single-serve amounts for quick lunches. Gina has been part of my healthy lifestyle for nearly a decade and is a 10/10 for inspiration and recipes.

  8. This is amazing. I used Chili-o for seasoning but other than that followed recipe. So impressed! It’s low cal too! Took it to a church chili fest and won the most popular chili. Beat that! It’s a 10!

    1. Hi Jeb, you could figure this out with a quick Google search. 🙂 Turkey is not vegan. You could make this recipe vegan by subbing the turkey for Beyond or Impossible Meat. In the future, instead of asking the recipe author to give up their time to answer questions like this for you, I recommend utilizing Google unless it’s genuinely something only the recipe author could answer. It’s faster for you and more considerate of the author.

    The turkey sweet potato recipe was delicious. I made a small change. I used barrilla garlc sausce and less water and diced tomatoes half a can. I would rate this 4.5 I look forward to try more of your recipes!

  10. Delicious! I don’t love sweet potatoes but they just melt into the chili providing just a little sweetness.

  11. Made this with all the original ingredients and it was wonderful. I’ve also made it with ground beef (lean) and ground chicken in place of the turkey. I substituted fire roasted diced tomatoes in place of the Rotel because I didn’t have on hand and diced up a fresh jalapeño pepper for a little kick. Regardless of what meat you use this chili is delicious! I did make it in my Insta pot and it was quick and easy ! This recipe is a keeper.👍🏻

  12. I LOVE this recipe! I make it every week during the colder months and whenever I’m in the mood in the warmer months. I don’t put a lot of sweet potato because I like a hint of sweet and it is still Yummy!

  13. Great flavor! I used ground turkey and added a can of low sodium black beans. Will definitely be making this again.

  14. I’ve only made white chicken chili, but this will be my new go to. So good and flavorful. Glad I doubled recipe, eating for lunch as I type this review.

  15. I love this recipe! I switch out the sweet potato for butternut squash and add a can of black beans. I also use ground Turkey breast so if you’re doing WW, it’s 0 points! But it tastes amazing!

  16. This soup is weirdly AMAZING at clearing your nasal congestion lol. I discovered this by accident a few years ago while making this amazing recipe while battling a sinus infection. And now years later I make this soup every time my family has stuffy noses.

  17. My whole family loves this recipe – it’s a staple in our house. We make it maybe every other week, especially in cooler months. Although it’s a bean-less recipe, it’s also great with beans! Sometime we also throw in some frozen corn. It freezes great too! We like to top it with sour cream, shredded cheddar, and serve with tortilla chips!

  18. Double this every time!!! (: Prepare once a week. So delicious, nutritious, and filling in a “light” way. Gift it ~ on special occasions. A simply delightful meal with crusted cheese bread, so good. You will not be disappointed! (:

  19. 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.

    1. I was wondering about using a crock pot to make it easier. We love this recipe- on Whole 30 and off. Thanks, Vanessa for this info 🙂

  20. This was delicious! I only had 1 lb of turkey meat so I added a hot italian turkey sausage link and it really added a ton of flavor. I also increased ALL of the spice measurements pretty heavily and added some cayenne. I will definitely be making this recipe again!

  21. Just curious if others after browning the ground turkey with the teaspoon of salt do you all drain the excess grease before continuing on with the recipe? Thanks so much for your input. 

    1. I use a 14.5 oz can of diced tomatoes and throw in a fresh chopped jalapeño…turns out perfect 🤩 

  22. Really good! I couldn’t taste the flavor of the sweet potato at all, so it seems it’s more to bulk it up (which wasn’t a good or bad thing, just mentioning in case the addition of it is scaring people off). Really just tasted like a traditional chili, which is always good! I followed the recipe exactly and added black beans. I will say this recipe only fed my husband and I with enough for one leftovers lunch container, so double if you’re making for a family 🙂

  23. I have made this many times with ground turkey but tried it today with shredded chicken breast (using what I had on hand!)  Also very delicious! Love that this is an easy recipe that tastes so good!

  24. Great baseline recipe, and I’ve now perfected it with a few tweaks. This is absolutely perfect, my family and I are all in agreement that this is the perfect spice and depth formula. Also, it’s a double recipe.

    40 oz 90% lean organic ground turkey (sprinkled with 1/8th tsp redumnd fine sea salt and 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground fennel seed during cooking)
    1/8th teaspoon redumund ultra fine sea salt
    1 1/4 cup chopped onion
    6 cloves garlic, crushed, then minced
    20 oz (2 cans) Rotel mild tomatoes with green chilies OR Rotel fire roasted tom w/green chiles
    20 oz of canned tomato sauce (I used Muir Glen Organic no salt added)
    2 tablespoons tomato paste
    1.5 teaspoons organic better than bouillon chicken base, dissolved in 1 3/4 cup water
    1 tsp cumin
    1/2 tsp chili powder
    1/4 tsp regular paprika
    1/4 tsp smoked paprika
    1/2 tspn ancho chili pepper
    1/2 teaspoon dried cilantro (this can be skipped)
    1/8th tsp garlic powder
    1/4 tspn onion powder
    1 bay leaf
    2 1/2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and diced into 1/2-inch cubes
    fresh cilantro, for garnish
    5% milkfat Fage greek yogurt for garnish
    chopped fresh jalapeno, ribs and seeds removed, for garnish
    polly-o part-skim mozzarella shredded, for garnish
    cabot pepper jack cheese, shredded, for garnsish (children may prefer plain monterey jack, less spicy)

    I used the instant pot method, and I also sauteed the onions and garlic separate from the turkey. I sauteed the turkey in its own pot on the stove, and then I drained the turkey (which was 90% lean). I also sauteed the onion in 1/2 teaspoon avacado oil, then added the garlic after a few minutes.

  25. I happened to find your recipe and decided to make it for dinner.  My husband and I really enjoyed it. I’m always looking for healthy low calorie meal options and this fit the bill. Thank you for great recipes. 

  26. This was so good! I was worried that it would be too sweet with the potatoes but not the case at all. The flavors come together really well and make this a wonderful bean-less chili recipe. Thank you! 

  27. I made this tonight only used a small butter nut squash chopped into small pieces, about 4 cups. It was perfect! I did use the whole 15oz can of tomato sauce just because of the added ingredients. Thank you!! 

  28. I would love to can this…would you add raw sweet potatoes to the jar instead of cooking them in the chili?

  29. This was delicious, I made a couple small changes, but kept the recipe mostly in tact.  First I like a bit more spice, so I upped the heat a bit with some red pepper flakes and chipotle Chile pepper.  I also had some frozen hatch chili peppers in the freezer and added them as well.  I’m trying to eat healthier, less beef and pork, so ground turkey is a good substitute, however to give more of a pork taste, I ground up a bit of fennel seed and added it to the spice mixture while sautéing the turkey.  A welcome improvement to the ground turkey blandness!  

  30. Hi, approximately how long does the turkey take to brown & cook through? Do the tomatoes need to be Rotel? I’m new to cooking so thank you for your help!

  31. I love this stuff!!! I have made it many times. I make a few modifications though.  I like the tomato flavor so double the diced tomatoes and add a small can of tomato paste. I am generous with the cumin and chili powder and also add a can of chipotle in adobo. This gives it a wonderful smoky spicy flavor! The 4 stars is due to the modifications. 

  32. This recipe is in constant rotation for us. My kids love it and they can be fussy eaters. I sneak in some cooked quinoa sometimes too and they don’t even notice! 

  33. This was really good. I found I did need to up the amounts of spices, i.e. cumin, chili powder and paprika. I did use smoked paprika also. I love Gina’s recipes particularly for her use of spices and herbs. She is a master at that. I turn to her recipes all the time for guidance.

  34. I made this but a crock pot version – browned the meat then the onion and garlic as stated in the recipe.  Then I through it into the crockpot with everything else listed for 6 hours on low.  I adjusted spices (doubled) as noted by others and it came out perfect!

  35. Very good and easy and filling. I added a tablespoon of tomato paste and cooked it down when sautéing onions. Also added a few tablespoons of chipotle in adobo and used smoked paprika instead of regular. Added a can of rinsed black beans. Rotel gives it the perfect medium spice level I prefer. The sweetness of the sweet potatoes play nicely with the smokiness and spiciness. Will definitely make this again. 

  36. How does doubling this recipe change the cook time – if at all – for instant pot and stove top? Thanks!

    This recipe is very good with a couple of small changes.  I enjoy onion so I use a whole medium onion, I add a small (8oz?) can of tomato paste and a 12 oz can of chipotle in adobo to give it a smoky spicy flavor.  I also use smoked paprika in place of the regular paprika.  It is wonderful!!!

    So good! I added a can of drained and rinsed white beans as a personal preference. Bf tasted the chili and requested a pinch of nutmeg to highlight the sweet potato. Delicious the first night, great leftovers for lunch the next day.

  39. I made this for my weekly meal prep for work and it was amazing! I am definitely keeping it in rotation!

    Made this last night for the first time. I used 2 lbs ground turkey, since I can only get it in lb increments. I more than doubled the onion and garlic and used 2 smallish sweet potatoes. I tripled all the spices. I can’t eat rotel because they contain cilantro, so I added a 20 oz can of diced tomatoes and a small can of diced jalapeños. I didn’t add any water. 

    Long and short— it was delicious!

  41. If I make this in a crockpot, can I just throw everything in? Do I still need to brown the turkey first?

  42. This is one of my all time fav recipes that I have been making for years! I have even one a chili contest or two with this one! I do double my spices up though!

    This was delicious and easy to make. I used spicy paprika and it was amazing. Thanks Gina 🙂

  44. Oh my! Oh my! A slight change in the weather had me craving SOUP! Miraculously, I had all the (easy and simple) ingredients for this one and was able to whip it up easily- WOW! so so soooooooo good!! My husband and I were fighting for leftovers today for lunch. highly recommend! 

  45. Sounds great but in my family that would be enough for three people maximum but probably two, plus some more sides. We’re active and usually don’t have breakfast but still feels like very small portions.

  46. I made this chili last night for my very picky husband who swears he will never eat a bean again and he loved this chili. This is going into our routine. We sprinkled a tablespoon of shredded asiago over it instead of using sour cream and that was good as well. I may play with the cumin and chili spice amounts in future meals but this recipe is definitely going into our meal list. And we used the yogurt biscuit recipe as well so it was a Skinnytaste meal. Thank you for a great dinner!

  47. Has anyone used chicken thighs in this?  If so did you precook and shred or cube them up and sauté like the ground turkey mentioned in the recipe?  

  48. I love this chili so much that I made it twice in one week. The second time I added a 1/4 c peanut butter and 1/2 tsp curry powder (two flavors I love with sweet potato) and now it will be part of regular chili rotation. I’m only sad I found it at the end of chili season. 

  49. After seeing a friend share on FB about this, I decided to try it for lunches at the office this week. It did not disappoint, it was so, so good! I will definitely be making it again. One thing to note, on the WW smart points, for the Green Plan, if you input the ingredients to the app, it comes out at 6 points, not 5. Just FYI in case you are counting points.

  50. Hi! In the sweet potato chili… I purchased the frozen sweet potatoes from Costco, could i throw those in the chili? Or do you think they’d get too mushy and watery?

    1. I’ve done it both ways. I think it is better with non frozen but is still good either way!  (and helps if you’re short on time). If using frozen I would leave them frozen when you put them in so they don’t get too mushy. 

  51. Amazing! This chili is absolutely delicious! The sweet potatoes make it especially creamy. I didn’t miss the beans at all! 

  52. I love this recipe and have made it many times. The sweet potatoes usually take 25 mins to soften stove top, so I decided to roast them at 425 degrees while I browned the turkey.  I added a diced Anaheim and poblano pepper (one of each) to the pan I was roasting and  the timing worked out perfectly. Delicious!

  53. I made this in crock pot today, & it turned out great! I did all the steps as listed, except I doubled the spices. Added can of green chiles. Put it in CP for “simmering” step.
    On low for 7 hours. Perfect!
    Added cheese, cilantro, sliced radish & 1/4 avocado to my bowl. Yum!
    Turns out I like ground turkey better than ground beef for chili!

      Did you have to soften the potatoes before hand since you were putting them in the crock pot?

    The spice mix was excellent! I swapped out the water for beer (low carb-ish?) and added a couple tsp of white wine vinegar. Turned out great.

  55. SO GOOD. I used a larger sweet potato (about 330 grams) and so it definitely needed more liquid; I used turkey stock – about 1 cup (eyeballed to a desired consistency). I also used ground turkey breast (almost 99% lean), and the texture was actually quite nice – I used a little bit extra olive oil for satueeing and made sure to get a little browning on the meat/onions. This soup is really quite low in calories compared to the nutritional elements and the FLAVOR BOMB that it is so I didn’t feel guilty over the extra fat. The cilantro as garnish adds a lot to the soup, which is great with or without a tangy cream (I recommend Forager vegan sour cream to stay dairy-free); I also recommend about 1/2 tsp of ground coriander in the spice blend as you cook this. Fantastic, relatively simple and very easy recipe that delivers in flavor, nutrition, and so many other categories.

  56. Delicious!! Used the InstaPot which made it super easy. I uped the spices to 1 tsp. each and it was just right for us. My picky teenager even liked it. Very filling. This one is going into the Winter soup rotation. Thanks Gina!

  57. LOVED this recipe!! I did as others suggested- double the recipe but triple the spices (add I triple the garlic). It was fantastic! I added one can of chipotle peppers in adobo and WOW! Really wish I tripled the recipe because there wasn’t any leftover! Can’t wait to make this again!

  58. I made this tonight and it was very good. I doubled the recipe and tripled the seasonings based on other reviews and also added cinnamon and oregano. 

  59. Has anybody made this with ground chicken? I’m making it today as I have all ingredients except that I have ground chicken. Gonna try it…I will let you know!

  60. I was looking for new turkey recipes and was going with something that I already had all the ingredients for. I found this recipe and loved it! I only had 1lb of turkey so I added a can of black beans (I think red, pinto, or black beans would work well). I made these into 4 servings to make this closer to around 350 calories per serving.

  61. This chili was so tasty and easy to make! I didn’t have a can of Rotel tomatoes so I just left it out and added diced red pepper instead. Followed everything else as directed but with 16oz of turkey. Put over top of a few tater tots with cheese and some everything but the bagel yogurt dip. So so good! 

  62. one of the best recipes I’ve made. Family loves it.. I’ve made it for company also and it was a big hit.

  63. I have made this many times now and I follow the recipe generally but I used smoked sweet paprika and added a can of Chipotle en adobo. That gives it some spice and some depth of flavor. 

  64. This is so good! My husband isn’t a big fan of sweet potatoes and he loved it. He also like that it wasn’t too spicy. I added chopped jalapeños to mine.  Made the IP version. Definitely will be making this again!

  65. This recipe is so good! Yum! Can’t wait to make it a again.  This is good right out of the pan but it is even more delicious the second day as the flavors from the sweet potatoes and spices really permeate the dish and sauce seems to thicken up after sitting.   I would probably double the batch so I have more leftovers next time.

  66. My family really likes this recipe! I always use a white sweat potato instead of the orange just because I don’t prefer the orange and its great! 

  67. This is a favorite at our house. I double it making one version as written for the kids and another for my husband and I. In that one, I double the spices, add chipotle peppers as well as extra sweet potatoes and tomatoes. Love it!

      I have toyed with idea of adding extra sweet potatoes so maybe I will try that next time. I think the smokiness of the chipotle’s would go great with the sweet potatoes so I may have to try that as well.

    1. Yes!  I always make this in a crock pot.  After browning the meat, onions and garlic I just throw it all into the crock pot before work and set it on low.  By the time I get home in the evening the house smells amazing and dinner is good to go!

  68. I LOVE this recipe and have made it several times, for us and for church members who need a meal delivered.  There is one confusing error–adding the cumin is mentioned in 2 different stages of the recipe–with the turkey and salt, and later with the tomatoes and chili powder.  Which is it?  I’ve added it both places and I don’t think it makes much difference. 

    1. Hey Julie! While it doesn’t really matter, I have fixed it to add later with the tomatoes. Glad you enjoy it! 🙂

  69. It’s not terrible. Not great. Doubled the spices as other suggested-good call. Lacks depth or complexity or something.

    Deeeee-lish!!! I made this for Superbowl Sunday. Loved by all! Great on our low carb/high lean protein diets. I at least doubled the spices, added another 1/4 c of water up front and cooked it for 1 hour and it was perfect. Friends have already asked for this recipe.

  71. Thank you so much for this recipe!  This is a favorite at our house. Even my picky daughter loves it. Just the right amount of spice, not too overwhelming for a 7 year old’s palate. And the flavors are wonderful. I chop my sweet potatoes just a tad smaller than 1 inch cubes and cook it on high pressure for 10 minutes, with NPR of around 10 minutes. The sweet potatoes are soft enough but still holding their shape at the end of the cooking time and the small uneven pieces break down and mix into the sauce and thicken the sauce just a bit.  This is a. keeper. 

  72. Now that WeightWatchers has made sweet potatoes zero points for Purple Plan members, I am trying this!  I’ve seldom been steered wrong by Gina, but I have avoided sweet potatoes for years due to their point value.  I am sure it will be great!

    This has become a staple at our house and it never lasts more than one night. If you haven’t tried it don’t let the sweet potatoes  in lieu of beans deter you. It’s delicious!!

  74. Soooo good & so easy to make! Even my suspicious 7-year-old loved it! This will be in our weekly rotation for sure.

  75. Wonderful, easy recipe. It’s fairly mild (which I liked) but I wanted a bit more spices to it so I added a little bit more cumin and garlic towards the end after I tasted it. I also read some of the comments saying that the chili was a bit watery so I used about 30% less water which turned out to be perfect. I cooked some quinoa on the side and put the chili on top and it was wonderful. Id love to try this recipe in a slow cooker. If anyone has suggestions on how to do it in a slow cooker let me know.

  76. Why is this 3 points for purple? I tried it in the recipe builder and it’s zero. I love this recipe please help!

  77. I used a can of garlic tomatoes (fire roasted would be really good, too) and a small can of diced green chilies. I also added kidney beans because I love beans. It ended up having more broth than pictured, but I considered that a good thing. My favorite and go-to chili of all time.

  78. This is such a delicious recipe and so easy to make!!!  Love it!!!!  I made mine in the crockpot. I commented to hubby that I could eat this forever it’s so good!!!  A favorite!

  79. I really like this recipe, but you need to double or triple the cumin and chili powder. Otherwise, it’s a little on the bland side.

  80. Delicious!! I added some pumpkin purée because I had some left from another recipe- it thickened the chili a bit as well. Will definitely make this again!!

  81. Soooo good!!! On of our favorite recipes to cook the moment we get a cool fall day! The sweet potatoes add a great texture and sweetness. I always share this recipe with people who are looking for something new to cook besides the standard bean chili. 

    Also try the white bean and pumpkin chili. It’s a runner up to this one. 

  82. Crazy easy and crazy good. I used 2 sweet potatoes and a whole onion. I also added a little more of each spice than the recipe called for and added a pinch of cinnamon. It came out delicious and got better as it sat in my fridge each day.

  83. So glad I tried this recipe. It’s just absolutely delicious. I topped my soup with a little diced avocado. I am doing Whole30 and this recipe is a really nice change of pace. Thanks for all your great, healthy recipes. Oh, I kind of wondered about the cooking time since I live at high altitude. My soup was perfect at 25 minutes.

  84. Hi Gina!  This is a favorite in our house but I’ve never doubled the recipe.  If I double it, would cooking time be the same in the instant pot?  Thank you!

  85. I added a can of rinsed black beans and doubled up cumin and chili powder; added dash of cinnamon.  If you leave the lid off at the halfway point, the water will cook down.  Delish!

  86. Mine came out more like soup… I smashed the sweet potatoes to thicken it up and added some tomato paste Also there is not nearly enough chili powder in this recipe. Really surprised at the good reviews.

    1. Agreed! I gave it 5 stars after adjusting the spices: 1.5 tsp. chili powder, 1 tsp. cumin, 1 tsp. oregano, and 1 tsp. paprika, plus extra salt and pepper to taste 🙂

  87. Just made this recipe for dinner and it’s delicious! I used the same amount of turkey but used 3 sweet potatoes, a whole onion and i added a can of organic red kidney beans (just to make it more hearty). Toppings: cilantro, avocado and tomatoes. I wish I could post a pic!
    Thanks for this awesome recipe. 

  88. This is so easy to make and really yummy. I like adding avocado and dipping coconut “tortilla” chips (Whole30 complaint) in it. As with all chili, it’s better the next day. I also freeze bathes for easy weeknight dinners.

  89. I have celiac and sensitivities to beans, but I love chili! This is sooo delicious and easy on my tummy. I used regualr (not chili) tomatoes, added a splash of white wine and oregano. So easy, too.

  90. This is by far my favorite instant pot recipe I have made to date. This chili is DELICIOUS!! So easy to make and whole 30 approved! Unbelievable! I have made this recipe several times already and I’m sure it will be a staple going forward. 

  91. My favorite new soup recipe. I added 1/2 package of frozen corn and 1 can drained black beans. I use 16 oz. turkey sausage. I cook it in a pot on the stove. Delicious! I have shared the recipe with others and plan to bring it for a soup cook-off contest at work this week.
