Step 1

Put the olive oil in a large pot and heat on medium-high. Put in the chopped onions and the red bell pepper. Cook everything for 5 to 6 minutes, or until the onions are translucent.

Mix in the chopped garlic, chili powder, cumin, red pepper flakes and the salt. Add in the ground turkey and cook for 7 to 8 more minutes, stirring occasionally, until the turkey is no longer pink.

Step 3

Mix in the yams, canned black beans, crushed tomatoes, and water. Cook 15 to 20 minutes longer, until everything starts to thicken up. Salt and pepper to taste.

Daily Inspiration

Great chili! This really hit the spot today at lunch as it's chilly outside here in Texas (for a change). The only change I made was to add some thawed fire-roasted corn kernels. Loved the addition of the sweet potatoes. Definitely will make this delicious chili again.
