Sweet Potato Chili

For Kizz…

Now, you all know how I cook. I don’t do a lot of measuring. I use what’s in my pantry and freezer and dump it in my crockpot. You can use your basic chili recipe, the spices you like to taste.

I cut up two big honkin sweet potatos in cubes. I didn’t peal them first.

I dumped a can of crushed tomatos and a can of diced. I added some fresh tomatos that I’d put in the freezer last summer.

Chopped up four cloves of garlic, and one jalapeno pepper seeds and all.

One can of black beans drained and a can of chili beans not drained

One onion chopped

One yellow bell pepper course chopped

I added (because I needed to use it before it went bad) a lb of lean ground turkey

Salt, pepper, cumin, chili powder, cayenne, crushed red pepper

and a cup or two of water

I dumped the turkey and tomatos in frozen solid, added the canned stuff and veg and spices and turned on the crockpot and left.

    Now…let’s just say, for the sake of argument, that I don’t like cooked tomatoes. What might you do to compensate for that?

    well. I’d leave out the tomatos.
    But I would use the crushed and the diced. They cook down to a basic chili base. You could use tomato juice…tomato paste.

    I used to not eat any form of tomato, but I love the flavor so I’d cook with them then eat around it.

    In fact, I’ve already taken out a goodly amount of the frozen ones I put in. bleargh.
