  1. Place sweet potatoes, stewed tomatoes, tomato sauce, onion, celery, water, chili powder, cumin, cinnamon, salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder in a slow cooker. Cook on high, stirring occasionally, for 5 hours.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and stir in ground turkey and ground beef. Cook and stir until meat is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink, 10 to 15 minutes. Drain and discard any excess grease. Add cooked ground turkey, cooked ground beef, black beans, and corn to sweet potato mixture in the slow cooker; cook until flavors have blended, 1 to 2 more hours. Serve warm.

Most helpful critical review

Way too much cinnamon, and not enough of the savory spices. If I were to make again, I would cut back on the cinnamon and turn up the heat/spices.

Wow! I would not change anything. The proportions are great already. The only thing I changed, because I didn't have any, was that I used a few shakes of Franks Hot Sauce instead of the cayenne ...

UPDATE: I won 3rd place in a friends and family chili cook off with this one! Thank you to salt&light for posting this fabulous recipe. I have made it an unofficial rule (very strong advice, lol...

Recipe Group Selection: 06, October 2012 ~ Great twist on chili. I love sweet potatoes, hubby does not. I made the soup while he was gone so he would not see me add the sweet potatoes. He ha...

A wonderful lower fat and more nutritious chili recipe! Hubby and I loved this, would be great for a Halloween party, the colors and flavors are so seasonal. I took a little liberty with the c...

Used all ground beef and omitted cayenne for the kids. Served with chopped avocado, green onions, and sour cream. The entire family ate it up!

Nice tasting chili. Easy to prepare. No substitutions or omissions. It is somewhat thin or has juice so if you like a thicker chili than I would suggest omitting water or have enough bread as a ...
