Whole30 Turkey Sweet Potato Chili

Jump To Recipe

Chili, or soups/stews in general, are one of the easiest ways to help stay on track when you’re cleaning up your diet.  Not only is chili super easy to make, it feeds a ton of people and is very versatile.  Today’s Turkey Sweet Potato Chili is a recipe that Brooke has made several times while on the Whole30 program. She snagged it from SkinnyTaste and has gotten tons of questions about it and where to find the recipe.  She passed it along to me and I minorly tweaked it.  You are absolutely going to love this chili.  It’s filling and comforting for the cold January days ahead and your whole family will love it.

I made this chili last Thursday and just so happened to have a bunch of people around to try it out on.  I’m having the exterior of my house painted and all the guys that were here working on it hadn’t had lunch yet, so I ladled up about six bowls of it and took it out to them while they were on break.  Later they said that it was a fantastic recipe, so YAY!!  Turkey Sweet Potato Chili gets a big thumbs up from six hungry guys and they had no clue it was Whole30 and healthy.

You may notice this chili doesn’t have beans in it.  Beans and all legumes are off limits during your Whole30 program.  I didn’t realize this, but according to the Whole30 book, legumes can cause inflammation in the body for some people.  Eliminating them for several weeks and then reintroducing them slowly can help you figure out if your body can handle them or not.  Giving up beans for a while was a tough one for me.  Since I eat a primarily vegetarian diet, I rely pretty heavily on beans for plant based protein.  I eat them a lot in soups, salads, chili, you name it.  It was definitely a challenge figuring out meals that didn’t include beans, but I made it work.  This chili recipe will be a go to, I promise!

    Hey there! I’m making your chili tonight and it smells great!! I am excited about the sweet potatoes! Unfortunately every tomato sauce and paste I found had sugar. Rotel also has sugar. I ended up buying fresh tomatoes and diced green chilies – I think they will make great substitutes!

      Hey Lisa, sugar is in EVERYTHING! It’s mind boggling, isn’t it?! So happy you ended up going the fresh route. Fresh is always better. Hope you enjoyed the chili!

        Trader Joe’s has a wonderful tomato sauce with NO sugar – as well as diced tomatoes.
