Sweet Potato & Black Bean Chili

This recipe has become a regular in our house! I love how delicious and easy it is to cook and how many vegetables it packs into just one bowl.  As an alternative name we lovingly refer to it as the 10 vegetable soup.  While the directions are for stovetop cooking I often cook it on the stove and then add it to the crock pot on “warm” for a few hours since I usually cook it ahead of time. Great both ways! Feel free to change up the vegetables.  There are so many delicious options with this chili.  We hope you enjoy it as much as we have.
