Sweet Potato Chili

Ryan is pretty much obsessed with this recipe. You see, when we first started dating, he told me how he makes a really good chili. He was committed to being the maker of all chili in our house and I never complained. I enjoy his version of chili. But when I saw this Sweet Potato Chili on Andi’s blog, I knew we had to make it.

Our love of sweet potatoes is somewhat disturbing. We could eat sweet potato fries (or anything sweet potato for that matter) several times a week and not get bored so that’s how I knew this recipe would be a winner.

Our intention was to have a chili cook off and taste them side by side, but that never happened. After making this the first time, this is the only chili we’ve made since….I’d say I won 🙂

The best part of this recipe? It’s a set it & forget it kind! Aka, using your crockpot. I know you all love your crockpots. And if you don’t, then you are truly missing out. And kind of weird.

The second best part? Easily adaptable to be vegetarian/vegan! A winner for all indeed.

  2. This looks delicious! I love sweet potatoes, but have never tried them in chili…will have to make this soon! Have you ever made it using ground beef or turkey instead of the italian sausage?

  3. Wow, that looks awesome. I also love sweet potatoes, especially baked and eaten cold because they taste even sweeter. I will definitely be making this chili, thanks for posting the recipe
