Turkey and Sweet Potato Crock Pot Chili

I've been playing catch-up all week since I was down in Charleston, SC this past weekend for a beautiful wedding.  Therefore, I relied on my Crock Pot to help me deliver a delicious meal without much added cook time.  Definitely an enjoyable dinner to come home and warm up to!
