Sweet Potato Chicken Chili

I came across this recipe for 20 Minute Sweet Potato Chicken Chili from Physical Kitchness the other day on Pinterest and was inspired to create my own version.  I love sweet potatoes, have been trying to eat more ground chicken or turkey in place of ground beef and I already had a lot of the ingredients.  I have really been enjoying cooking and trying new recipes this year.  I'm sure you've noticed because with all the recipe posts I've been writing for you in 2019.

Here is my version of this yummy Sweet Potato Chicken Chili:

1 lb ground chicken
salt, pepper and Montreal Steak Seasoning
1 T sugar
1 T chili powder
1 t cumin
16 oz tomato sauce
28oz petite diced tomatoes
1/2 c salsa
1 c sweet peppers washed and diced
1/2 yellow onion diced
1/4 purple onion diced
2 cloves of garlic
3 small sweet potatoes peeled and diced small
2 c chicken stock
1 can black beans/corn

Toppings: avocado, jalapenos, sour cream or tortilla chips

Brown the ground chicken with the seasonings.  Chop all the veggies and dump everything into a big soup pot.  Let it cook for several hours until the sweet potatoes are soft.  This recipe served enough to feed us for 2 dinners and 2 lunches.  It was really delicious.  Reheats great. 

In full disclosure, only the adults at my house loved this soup. 

Kevin and I thought it was really good.  Nothing we would change.

My kids thought it was poison and opted for sandwiches instead.

I'm looking on the bright side - both kids tried it, said they didn't care for it and maybe one day they'll change their mind about it.  I just think they had pizza on the brain :)

The kids did love when I made them individual charcuterie plates over the weekend. 

Fletch had a cold and I didn't want him sharing germs with everyone.  This allowed for us all to have a snack type meal without passing any germs.  Some current favorite items - Almond Thin crackers, original hummus, extra sharp white cheddar cheese, peanut butter filled pretzels and honey crisp apples are a family favorite.

 Would your family eat this Sweet Potato Chicken Chili??


  1. I love sweet potatoes too. I bet I would love this.

  4. I recently made a no bean turkey and sweet potato chili from the Skinnytaste website and it was SO good. I LOVE sweet potatoes!! And my kiddos did NOT like it either! HA! They would absolutely love that snacky plate you made Fletcher though!! I did a little mix of popcorn, pretzels and cheez its for their snack this past Sunday and they loved having a "mix." Easy way to make snack time a little more exciting! ;)

  5. That chili looks delicous. All of your food options do!
