Sweet Potato Chili (Whole 30)

So this is a recipe I found a long time ago, and modified it to be paleo/whole 30 approved. It has very few ingredients and takes only about 10 minutes to prepare. Even tho its so simple, it is still extremely flavorful. Whenever I make a batch of it, I have leftovers for days, which is awesome! You can add shredded cheese, sour cream, or bacon on top if you so wish ( if you arent doing Paleo) and it would be delicious. You can also pair it with a piece of french bread or your favorite gluten free bread. Everyone loves a good warm bowl of chili in the Fall time, and this is a great version of it. Whip it up for dinner this week, you'll love it :)

1 TBS Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 lb pound ground beef ( or turkey)
1 cup coarsely chopped yellow onion
1 bell pepper, chopped (optional)
1 lb sweet potatoes, peeled and diced into small cubes
1 (28 oz) can no added sugar diced tomatoes, not drained
2 cloves fresh garlic, minced
1/2 teas chili powder
1/2 teas cumin
1/8-1/4 teas red pepper flakes
1 teas sea salt
1/2 teas black pepper

Cook ground beef thoroughly in large pot, until no longer pink. Add onion and cook 2-3 minutes or until onions are soft.
Add sweet potatoes, diced tomatoes, garlic, spices, and salt and pepper. Stir well. Cover and reduce heat to low or a slight simmer. Cook 45 minutes or until sweet potatoes are tender enough to stick a fork through. Serve and enjoy!
