Happy Thursday!

You asked for it, and I am providing! This is my ALL-TIME favourite recipe! It is not only yummy, but full of vegetables, lean meats and packed with flavour (and the macros are balanced)!

This recipe is adopted from a long-time friend and she did not disappoint! You can always take things out or add things in.

One of the biggest things I love about this recipe is the fire roasted tomatoes – they are delicious! I also tend to crisp up the yam a bit before adding it into the Chili, also known as, burning it a tad. No judgement.

Autumn Chili

4 Servings


1 cup yam/orange sweet potato, peeled and cubed (you don’t have to peel, I prefer)
2 Red Bell peppers, cubed
1 Green Pepper, cubed
1 Yellow Pepper, cubed
1 Yellow Onion, diced
1 Garlic Glove, minced (add more if you wish)
1 (14.5oz.) can of Fire Roasted Tomatoes
1 (8oz.) can of Tomato Sauce (or paste, if you want it a bit thicker)
1lb. of Extra Lean Ground Beef
1 tbsp. Garlic Powder
1 tbsp. Chili Powder
2 tbsp. Smoked Paprika
2 tsp. Cumin
1 tsp. Cayenne Pepper

Salt and Pepper to taste!


Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees

Peel and cut up yams

Place yam on baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil and salt (I add some cayenne for extra kick)

Bake yam for 30-40 mins, or until soft

Dice and chop remainder of vegetables.

In large pan over medium heat, add onion and saute until translucent

Add peppers to the pan and cook until softened

Remove peppers and onion from pan and set aside (keep pan on heat)

Add beef to pan and spices to the beef

Once beef is cooked thoroughly, return veggies to the pan

Add cans of roasted tomatoes and sauce/paste, bring to a simmer

Add baked yam to the beef sauce and enjoy!

If you haven’t read my ‘Where it all began’ blog post, you should – gives you a good sense of how I came to be where I am today, and why I continue to move forward (no matter what obstacle is thrown my way).

Happy eating!
