Sweet Potato Chili

Mangialicious Food


This chili is a sweet and spicy bowl of delicious health conscience food. It is so amazingly delicious that you will forget about any mention of "health". I am always trying to develop new spins on old recipes that are a bit healthier. Although, it is difficult with my serious love for macaroni and bread. While strolling through the produce section one morning, I saw some beautiful sweet potatoes and 100 ideas went through my head of what I could make with them. Hash? Spicy chili fries? Hmm? Or just sweet spicy chili!
