  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 ½ tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

  • 1 28-ounce can diced tomatoes
  • 1 ½ cups tomato sauce (no sugar added)
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 large sweet potato, cubed


Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add ground turkey and cook until browned (about 3–4 minutes). Add onions and cook for 3 more minutes.

Add peppers, jalapeño and garlic; cook for another 2 minutes.
