Paleo Sweet Potato Chili

We changed so little in the original recipe from Healthy Liv, I’m simply going to link to it here. Though the original recipe called for ground beef, we opted for ground turkey. We omitted the garlic powder and replaced the medium onion with one bunch of green onion, chopped fine. Finally, we used homemade roasted tomato sauce (recipe below). The original chili recipe turned out VERY spicy, so you may want to dial down the amount of chili powder you include if you’re looking for a less spicy option.

Roasted Tomato Sauce

If you ever have the opportunity to bring home a large box of plum tomatoes from your farmer's market, MAKE THIS RECIPE! So simple and easy. You can also purchase 2-3 dozen plum tomatoes at your local grocer to make a batch of this naturally sweet sauce.

  • 2 dozen plum tomatoes cut in half, lengthwise
  • 2-3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper


  • Preheat your oven to 275 degrees F. Arrange the prepared tomatoes on a sheet pan with the cut sides up.
  • Drizzle with the olive oil and sprinkle with the salt and black pepper.
  • Roast the tomatoes for 2 hours or until they've concentrated and begun to caramelize (turn brown). Allow them to cool to room temperature.
  • In batches, blend the roasted tomatoes with olive oil, salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a boil on the stovetop and serve. You can reboil it after a few days in the fridge, or freeze for later use.
