More About This Recipe
  • A simple and easy weeknight chili recipe with a spicy Asian twist! I’ll be honest: I’ve never found turkey to be a super-flavorful base for recipes. It’s just kind of bland! But it is easy to cook and relatively healthy. To counter the blandness, I like to use it in recipes like this Thai chili recipe, which has a spicy Asian kick. The only prep this recipe really requires is some peeling and chopping of the sweet potato and peppers. Luckily, you can do that while your turkey is cooking! Serve the chili with a big handful of fresh cilantro and a few lime wedges, and enjoy!
