Clean Crockpot Turkey Sweet Potato and Black Bean Chili

Even though it hasn't been cold out, it has been nasty and rainy the last two days.  After searching for some easy slow cooker recipes I ended up combining a few ideas and came up with something a little different.  I saw the sweet potato and black bean combination in a couple of recipes and thought it was an odd combination, but it turned out to be hearty and delicious!

I ate and cleaned up so fast that I forgot to take a picture, but it's chili, not that exciting anyhow!
