Directions:
1. In a large cast iron skillet, (or any skillet) heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute and then add ground turkey. Use a wooden spoon to break apart meat and continue cooking approximately 8 minutes until browned.
2. Add cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper. Stir well to incorporate.
3. Add onion and bell pepper, and cook for 3-4 minutes. Add diced sweet potato and beans and water. Stir and cover with a lid until the sweet potatoes soften. Add additional water during this process if needed to keep the meat from drying out.

Lots of chopping with this recipe - may take upwards of an hour for prep but makes a very tasty and healthy meal! I add cayenne pepper to spice it up even more!
