Hey friends. I’m sure most of you are running around like crazy getting your Thanksgiving to do list done. Am I right? Or are Type A and have it planned and prepped? Haha, you know who you are your overachievers.
But either way, one thing is for sure, we all pretty much have planned to SAVOR the leftovers. Let’s face it, that is secretly your favorite part about this holiday anyways. Utilizing and enjoying every last piece of turkey, sweet potatoes, dessert, stuffing, etc.
And if you’re like me, throwing leftovers in into a pot or crock pot to make chili, sweet potato chipotle chili to be exact, is definitely going to happen.
I know I know, I’m still talking thanksgiving food. And I hate mention it yet again, but we don’t like plain turkey (much), which is why I made this chicken. However, I’m pretty sure you could add any meat to chili it taste DIVINE. Hence this recipe, which you can make with poultry, pork, or beef. I’ve made it twice once with turkey and the other with 5280 meats organic pork.
Yep —> Crock pot Paleo sweet potato chipotle chili.
The true smokey flavor from this chipotle chili definitely comes from slow cooking the chipotle peppers.
We don’t mess around with spice here in Texas ya’ll. And when you add in the sweetness of well… sweet potatoes, you got one KILLER combo. I mean, one SMOKEY SPICY SWEET combo. You have been warned, the spicy part is not an understatement. Haha!
But can I tell you another secret? I really made this chipotle chili to try to branch out a bit when making this for family. They are so used to traditional Texas chili or White bean Chili, which consists of corn and bean as the main starches. Sure, that’s all good from time to time, but dang, we needed change. We needed a SUPERFOOD veggie (sweet potatoes for the win!).
Nutrition estimate based on using a lean pork, turkey, or chicken.
That is totally is justifiable, right?
Plus it was just another way to bust out my crock pot again. Which we all know I’m kinda obsessed with these days.
Okay, I won’t keep you. I know you’re busy. So remember this dish next week. You know, when you are sick of plain turkey and eat more turkey sandwich. Or if you’re entertaining a hungry crew and you just need a big pot of healthy but hearty substance to feed people. DO IT!
CHIPOTLE CHILI TO THE RESCUE!
Everyone will certainly “gobble this chipotle chili up!” Okay, I’ll stop with the turkey jokes now. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
What’s the first thing you will make with leftovers?
