Whether you’re taking The Whole30 Challenge or not, this bean-free slow cooker sweet potato chili is certain to become a new family favorite. The combination of a spicy, meaty tomato sauce paired with the subtle sweetness of creamy sweet potatoes and an assortment of veggies creates an absolutely incredible chili. Talk about a bowl full of healthy flavor!
To create this classic wintertime comfort food in a bowl, I started with with my original Turkey-Veggie Chili and tweaked it to omit “the magical fruit” without changing its rich hearty flavor. In fact, we find this new new bean-free version to be even more flavorful!
Of course, the best thing about this tasty recipe is that your slow cooker does most of the work. Just brown the meat and toss in the rest of the ingredients and go about your busy day knowing dinner will be ready without a lot of fuss. In fact, if you meal plan, you can schedule time to brown the meat ahead of time and then refrigerate or freeze it so it’s ready when you are – a definite time saver!
Oh, and one more bonus – this recipe makes a lot of chili! I always love it when I can get two meals from one cooking session. Simply store leftovers in the fridge for up to five days and reheat to enjoy.
