green bell pepper
seeded and diced
hot Italian turkey sausage
large sweet potato
peeled and diced into 1/2″ pieces
canned white beans
reduced-sodium chicken broth
freeze dried or fresh
Heat olive oil in a dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add onion, bell pepper, sausage, and sweet potatoes. Stir, crumbling meat as it cooks, until sausage is cooked through.
Stir in beans, chicken broth, chili powder, cumin, and cinnamon. Bring to a low boil. Reduce to a simmer, and cover. Simmer for 20 minutes.
Remove cover, and make sure sweet potatoes are fork tender. If not, continue to simmer until soft. Stir in cilantro before serving.
