  • 13 oz turkey sausage chopped
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 onion diced
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 2 sweet potatoes peeled and diced
  • 15 oz tomato sauce
  • 14.5 oz tomatoes
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 15 oz black beans drained and rinsed
  • 15 oz chili beans
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup cheddar jack cheese


  • Heat the olive oil in a heavy pot over medium heat.
  • Add the turkey sausage, onion, and garlic to the pot, and cook until the onions are soft and translucent. Stir in the sweet potatoes and cook 3-4 minutes.
  • Add the chicken broth, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, black beans, and chili beans, and stir to combine. Add the chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper.
  • Bring the mixture to a simmer. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sweet potatoes are tender and easily pierced with a fork, and the chili has thickened. Serve hot, topped with a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkle of cheese.
