Best Crockpot Chili Ever


Winter is coming and so is crockpot chili weather! This chili is so delicious its a blend of sweet potato, turkey and quinoa! I throw everything into the crockpot and leave it on for 6 hours on low and then I serve it with fritos, greek yogurt, and a sprinkle of cheese.


  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons chipotle chili pepper
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 3 small or 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and diced (about 1 pound)
  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 1, 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes
  • 1, 15-ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1, 12-ounce beer
  • 2 – 3 cups low-sodium chicken stock
  • For serving: shredded cheese, tortilla chips, plain Greek yogurt


Put everything above into the crock pot give it a good stir and turn it on low for 6 hours. When I went to serve it I added 1 cup of chicken stock to loosen it up! Enjoy!!

11 Month Update! A Big One!

SO do you remember the sweet little baby I have been writing about the past 11 months? Well, she’s gone, she’s now not my little baby anymore, she’s turning into a toddler and being bad!! Its like she turned 11 months and decided she’s going to be a sassy lady from now one. Taking her out now is turning into a bigger challenge she does not like to sit still in her high chair she has even mastered getting out of it. Restaurants and grocery stories all need to be quick before she unleashes the beast! I will give you the update on the past month!img_2515

Clothing: She is still in 6-12 month clothes, size 2 shoes, size 3 diapers! She weighs 18.01 pounds this month. I love dressing her for winter since its October and getting chilly I have been in search of cute winter clothes for her. Zara, Target, Dillard’s, and boutiques have lots of great things. I like dressing her like me!


Food: Sister can EAT!! She loves everything but she really goes gaga over macaroni and cheese, pancakes and fruit.Its not taking her out to eat she will just split with me whatever I am eating. Still not eating baby food but drinking about 3 bottles of formula a day at 1 year I will switch her to cows milk woohoo no more formula, no more baby breeza! We always have a water sippy cup at every meal time and she’s eating 3 meals a day with about 3 bottles in between. For lunch during school days she gets a turkey, cheese sandwich which she loves!


Activities: She is ALMOST walking she is standing up on her own and is almost about to take a step but she gets scared I know in the next 2 weeks she will be. I will update when she does. She still plays on her own, she’s getting more adventurous I found her in the bath tub playing with her toys thank god no water was in there! She gets a bath now every night because she is obsessed with it and she needs it!!  We had to lower her bed to the last and final notch before we drop it to the floor, so far she has not escaped yet! She is getting into EVERYTHING we have had to baby proof lots but no drawers, she slammed her fingers in them one time and she has never done it again, but as far as cords, blinds, corners, and sharp objects I have taken care of all that and we have been good to go. She loves to go on a walk everyday to the park and swing on the swing and play with the other kids. On Wednesdays we go to the library and they read and sing to the kids and she loves that too! I have to keep her busy at all times she likes to go places, see things, do new stuff which is fun yet challenging.


Sleeping: She is still sleeping 12 hours its more like 6ishpm-6ish am. I love it I can get so much done after she is asleep, make dinner, watch real housewives, laundry, shower, etc its perfect.


11 months has blown by and its insane what she is turning into a miniature me!! She’s obsessed with Daddy, food and walks! Her birthday party invites went out and I am getting everything together for that which I am soooo excited about!! Ill update y’all on the walking!
