My morning started out with teaching a power packed class at the gym followed up with a little outdoor jaunt. This weather…I’m absolutely loving. It’s finally starting to get a bit nippy down in Texas.
Temps should for sure be good for some running this weekend!
Along with chilly weather comes warm yummy comfort food and the recipe below did not disappoint. Plus it’s packed with protein and you will have plenty to eat off of for the rest of the week!
I adopted this sweet potato turkey chili from the Skinny Taste website. Lots of great finds on there. I did tweak (aka simplify) it a bit.
What you’ll need:
1 sweet potato, peeled and cut up into chunks
Ground turkey (or soy crumbles if you’re a veggie)
Diced tomatoes/peppers (1 can of the rotel works great) & tomato sauce
Crumbled goat cheese/tortilla chips/hot sauce to taste
Brown the meat and cook through. Drain, then add the garlic and salt/pepper to taste. (I also added a bit or sriracha here for some heat…so good!) Add in peppers, corn and chopped up sweet potatoes. Cook on medium for about 20-25 minutes until potatoes are softened and everything is cooked thru. Top with crushed tortilla chips and goat cheese, serve.
