What's for Dinner? Wednesday


Lunes, Martes, Miercoles! We're practicing our Spanish this Wednesday and getting ready to cook one of our favorite recipes because it's What's for Dinner? Wednesday!  Today we are busy as bees and using our crock pot again to make Black Bean and Sweet Potato Turkey Chili. We hope you can join us!
Gather these ingredients:
1 small yellow onion
2 cloves garlic
1 14.5 oz can tomatoes
1 15 oz can black beans
2 cups sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 lb lean ground turkey
1 bay leaf
3/4 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp each of oregano, ground pepper,  and cayenne pepper
pinch of sea salt
2 tbsp chili powder
1.5 cup water

How to make it (Hint: so easy!)

Step One: Get out your crock pot (if you don't have one, buy one already! it has been a real life-changer for us).

Step Two: Find a can opener and get out your tomatoes and black beans and add them to the pot. Prep your sweet potatoes, garlic, and onion, and add them before covering your veggies with your turkey, spices, and water.

Step Three: Cover your crock pot and set it to cook on low for eight hours or four hours on high if you're really pressed for time.

Step Four: Check in on your dinner for a taste test about 20 minutes before it's time to serve and adjust your spices if necessary.  Then give it a stir.

Step Five:  Serve your delicious fall-inspired chili!
