What better way to welcome the chillier weather than with a warm, comforting bowl of turkey sweet potato stew? Stews tend to call for a boatload of veggies and spices, meaning they yield incredible depth of flavor and fabulous textures. This crave-worthy version features two beloved holiday foods: turkey and sweet potatoes. The tender, juicy goodness of turkey compliments the candy-sweet, buttery potatoes just beautifully, and this recipe lets the killer combo truly shine.

Along with these two scrumptious superstars, our recipe calls for a bunch of nutrient-rich superfoods, like carrots, onions, peppers, garlic, and cilantro. Savory spices like paprika and red pepper flakes lend a zesty kick, while Greek yogurt adds rich, creamy character to the stew’s texture.

You only need one large pot to whip up this satisfying, belly-warming recipe. Although perfect for the holiday season, this Turkey and Sweet Potato Stew is yummy enough to enjoy year-round, whenever the mood strikes!
