INGREDIENTS
METHOD
  1. Heat 1 tsp oil and 1/4 cup chicken broth in a large skillet sprayed with cooking spray. Add ground turkey breast and cook until no longer pink. Remove turkey from the pan and set aside. (Tip: add more broth as needed until cooked through)
  2. Heat remaining 1 tsp of oil and 2 tbsp chicken broth to the same pan over medium-high heat. Add garlic and onion and cook until onion is translucent, about 3-4 minutes (add more broth if needed). Add bell pepper, sweet potato, canned tomatoes, tomato sauce and spices. Cook for an additional 3-4 minutes, stirring frequently.
  3. Add ground turkey back to the skillet and pour in water. Turn the heat down to low-medium, cover, and simmer for 10 minutes, or until sweet potatoes are tender and chili has thickened
