2 tablespoons canola oil
1/2 pound turkey sausage, casings removed
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
3 sweet potatoes, chopped into small pieces
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 14.5-oz can diced fire-roasted tomatoes, undrained
2 cups chicken broth
1 cup water
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 15-oz can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
Additional salt and pepper to taste

  1. Warm oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add sausage; break up any large chunks and sauté until no pink remains. Using a slotted spoon, transfer meat to a bowl; cover. Add onion, bell pepper and sweet potato to pot and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 6 minutes. Add garlic and sauté for 1 minute. Return meat to pot.
  2. Stir in tomatoes, beans, broth, water, spices and salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and stir in beans. Cover and simmer until chili thickens slightly, about 30 minutes. Season with additional salt and pepper to taste.
