Sweet Potato Turkey Chili (Crock-Pot)

I love to make a big pot of chili this time of year. This one smells amazing while slow cooking in your crock-pot. The sweet potatoes add a fabulous flavor and add a wonderfully healthy addition to this fiber rich chili. Each large serving has 311 calories and 7 grams of fat. Enjoy a bowl for dinner, eat it for lunch the next day and freeze the extras for another night.
