1 lb. ground turkey
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 yellow onion, diced
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
1 tsp garlic, minced
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 small sweet potatoes (approx 1-1.5 lbs), cubed
2-3 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
3 tablespoons honey
2 tsp avocado oil or olive oil
3-4 tablespoon chicken broth or water (more or less as needed to achieve a thick sauce or paste)
1/2 tsp garlic, minced
1/2 tsp cumin
S+P to taste
Step 1 / In a large saute pan, brown the ground turkey in 1 tablespoon olive oil. Stir in salt, pepper and cumin. Remove from pan and set aside.
Step 2 / In the same pan, saute onion, red pepper, and garlic in 2 tablespoons olive oil on low-medium heat until soft.
Step 3 / Add cubed sweet potatoes to the pan and mix together. Raise to medium high heat and add about 2 tablespoons water to the pan, cover with lid, and let cook for about 7-10 minutes until potatoes are almost tender.
Step 4 / While potatoes cook, combine the chipotle peppers, honey, garlic, cumin and s+p in a food processor or blender to make the sauce, adding additional broth or water to form a thick sauce.
Step 5 / Remove lid from pan and brown potatoes on high heat for an additional 1-2 minutes. Next, add the cooked ground turkey and sauce to taste (depending on how saucy or spicy you'd like the dish to be). Toss together on low heat until everything is heated through and incorporated. If your sauce is more paste-like, you may need to add a tablespoon or so of broth/water at this step to loosen it up a bit.
Pro tip: for extra protein, serve with a fried egg on top or over leftovers the next day!
