This is GREAT! I'm not generally a fan of sweet potatoes, but I do like them in soups so I decided to try this. I left out the meat, mainly because I didn't want to have 1/2 pound of turkey left over. I actually think the meat is unnecessary and loved it without! This is a wonderfully colorful dish and very visually appealling. Based on previous reviews about undercooked potatoes, I diced mine and had no problems. Served with dinner rolls to sop up liquid. I will make this again and share it with my Weight Watchers members!

Great recipe! The lime juice makes the recipe extra special! I recommend cutting the sweet potatoes on the super small side so they cook all the way through. Also, the sour cream and cilantro as a garnish is a must and very yummy! I made this for a friend who cannot have dairy (skip the sour cream) or wheat and she loved it!

We really liked this chili with all the interesting flavors and colors. My kids called it a "bean stew" because it was much milder than most chilis that we make (and it also had beans, but that's another argument). They ate it with cheese sprinkled over the top and used corn chips as a crunchy scoop. We followed the recipe exactly, with the exception of simmering it a bit longer and also adding a couple of cups of corn kernels. I really liked the tartness that the lime juice gave this dish, and I will add a couple extra squeezes next time, as well as chopping up some cilantro and throwing that in. Derf, thank you!

My husband said this dish was the best recipe I have made! I had to simmer it awhile as I didn't cut the sweet potato in small pieces. It was excellent and had a great flavor. We had cornbread with this chili. I didn't have a fresh zuccini but I had a can of tomatoes with cooked zuccini in it so I improvised.

This was very tasty. I put cornbread dumplings on top.

I liked this, a lot! I did leave out the ground turkey, but made as stated otherwise. Very hearty, healthy soup!

I thought this was a really bland soup. I don't think I would make it again.
