status Eenie Meenie Chili Beanie

I had 2lbs of ground turkey sitting in my fridge and the world wide web at my fingers. Time to do something with it.  I had pinned 2 recipes for clean eating chili.  One was  a Chipotle Turkey and Sweet Potato Chili the other a Clean Eating Turkey Chili.

My problem is that one would be too hot for Hubby. The other was cooked on the stove top, and I was feeling lazy.  I combined them into  a hybrid version I could make in my Ninja Cooking System.

What’s a Ninja Cooking System?  Like the most awesome thing to have in a kitchen. It looks like a slow cooker, but it is way more than that. It has three modes. STOVETOP– for browning or steaming. SLOW COOK– for well, slow cooking. OVEN– for steaming and steam baking.  Instead of the ceramic insert you get in a slow cooker, this is a non-stick bowl for easy cleanup.  AND the bowl is dishwasher safe!
