Turkey and White Yam Chili
In a large Dutch oven, brown turkey in oil over medium-high, about 5 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon. Lower heat slightly; add onion, garlic and 1/2 tsp salt. Cook about 3 minutes. Add spices and toast, stirring, about 1 minute.Advertisement
Stir in tomato paste and chipotle. Return turkey to pot and add beans, chicken stock, sugar and 2 tsp salt. Bring to a simmer and add yam.
Cover and cook at a brisk simmer for about 1 hour. Check yams periodically: You want them to crush easily under pressure but not completely dissolve into the chili. Serve warm.
