1. Sweet Potatoes

Do I add sweet potatoes to pretty much any of my recipes? Probably.

Sweet potatoes are so versatile in my kitchen. I use them in baking desserts like this Paleo Flourless Brownies, breakfast Pancakes, or instant pot soup like Thai Curry or this Chili Recipe.

Sweet Potatoes add the perfect sweetness and soft texture to this chili. They also cut the acidity from the tomatoes and spiciness from the chili powder.

2. Cacao Powder

Chocolate in chili? Okay, yes please!

Cacao powder is another one of my favorite kitchen staples. It is rich in antioxidant, contains lots of vitamins, minerals and many healthy benefits. Read more Here.

In this healthy chili recipe, cacao powder compliments the acidic tomatoes and spicy chili powder perfectly. It truly just brings all the flavors together.

3. Steps To Take

If you are using an instant pot, pressure cooker, this chili will be ready in under an hour.

1. Chop up all the Ingredients (listed below in the recipe)
2. Brown the ground turkey
3. Chuck everything in the pot

I used Mealthy 9-function Pot. It is like a instant Pot on steroids. You can use it slow or pressure cook, sauté, steam, and even make yogurt and cakes.

4. Stir Well

This step is actually very important. One time I didn’t stir the pot, all the ingredients just stayed where they were placed after cooking. So you want to stir it until all the ingredients are smothered by the tomato-ey broth.

A few of my favorite Toppings

Now the chili is ready. Let’s talk about my favorite part!

Toppings!

When it comes to topping off a chili bowl, the sky is unlimited.

 A few of my favorite classic and unconventional toppings are:

  1. Full Fat yogurt:  a much healthier version than sour cream
  2. Corn Muffin
  3. Shredded cheddar cheese
  4. Avocado
  5. Green Onion
  6. Micro Green

  5. Season with 2 - 3 tsp of chili powder, salt and pepper to taste. And stir all the ingredients well
  6. Cook in a pressure cooker: (which is my favorite way, so quick and easy in my multi-pot), seal the top and have the pressure setting on high. Cook for 25 minutes.

Notes

  1. If you prefer spicier, keep the seeds of jalapeno (it definitely caught my mouth on fire)
  2. If you are cooking on stove top, cook all the ingredients in a pot for at least an hour or until preferred consistency

      Hi Marilyn,

      If you use a crockpot, you can do 3 hours on high or 5 – 6 hours on low. Stir occasionally to make sure everything is well combined 🙂 Enjoy.
