Sweet Potato, Quinoa & Turkey Chilli 

Sometimes you have a day where you just think, life is good. 

We spent the day hiking Rattlesnake Point in Milton. It’s a great spot, about $13 bucks for a couple to enter, park and hike for the day. 

The leaves were mainly green but the weather was nothing short of perfect !


Now it’s the last evening in September, the wine is in the decanter, beers in the fridge and I’m making chilli. Fall is just a good season, isn’t it !?

I’ve been loving sweet potatoes lately and wanted to incorporate them into a chilli. 

Here’s what I’m whipping up: 

1 tray of ground turkey

4 garlic cloves 

2 stalks of celery

1/2 cup fresh parsley 

1 can kidney beans

1 sweet potato 

1 cup water

3/4 cup cooked quinoa 

1 tbsp chilli powder 

1 tsp cinnamon 

1 tbsp coriander 

2 tbsp BBQ sauce 

1 can tomato paste 

1 diced tomato

Salt & pepper 

Franks (if you want some spice) 

Basically I added all the ingredients into the pot in that order. 

I think a couple times I added more parsley, love that stuff ! 

Let it simmer for a while. Have a beer & a glass of wine. Smells great. 


Spending a weekend doing the simple things with the ones you love… it really doesn’t get much better than this. 

Also, this beer goes insanely well with chilli. Just sayin !
