Super Bowlful Chili

Super Bowlful Chili
There's no need to avoid carbs when they're as nutritious as sweet potatoes and beans — or as yummy. The beans will help to stabilize your appetite, so you'll be satisfied for the evening. The chipotle chile pepper packs heat — if you prefer a milder brew, leave it out.


This recipe makes 8 servings

  • 1 pounds turkey, lean ground, breast
  • 1 large onion(s), chopped
  • 2 pepper(s), red, bell, or yellow, chopped
  • 4 clove(s) garlic, large, minced
  • 3 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon cumin, ground
  • 1 teaspoon oregano, dried
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large potato(es), sweet, peeled and cut into 1/2" cubes
  • 28 ounce(s) tomatoes, diced, (1 can)
  • 14 ounce(s) broth, chicken, (1 can)
  • 1 pepper(s), chipotle chiles, in adobo sauce, minced (optional)
  • 30 ounce(s) beans, chili, (2 cans, 15 to 16 ounces each), rinsed and drained
  • 1 zucchini, chopped


In a large soup pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat, cook the turkey, onion, and bell peppers, stirring frequently, for 8 minutes, or until the turkey is cooked through. Add the garlic, tomato paste, chili powder, cumin, oregano, and salt. Cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute.

Add the sweet potato, tomatoes (with juice), broth, and chipotle chile (if using). Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes.

Stir in the beans and zucchini. Return to a simmer. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes more, or until the flavors are well blended and the vegetables are tender.
