  1. As soon as I saw this recipe, I knew I was going to love it! We made it on Friday night, and it’s seriously my newest favorite food on the planet! Thanks for sharing your recipes, and especially for this new winner winner chili dinner!

    1. Hi Brenda, I’m so glad you love it!! Stay tuned, because I’ve got some more meatless meals coming to the blog soon!

  2. Vegan chili is one of my favorite winter dinners.  Though I try to eat meat or fish most nights, a good vegan meal can be very satisfying.

  3. I’m absolutely drooling over your chili recipes. This sweet potato version looks delicious. I’m going to have to give it a try during Lent!

  4. I’m also not a fan of beans but this looks amazing! The sweet potatoes definitely make this swoon-worthy!

  5. I’m loving sweet potatoes right now. Especially since they’re suppose to be so much better for you than regular potatoes. I’m also trying to cut back on eating meat a few times a week, so this sounds great on so many levels!

  6. This chili looks delicious! I love the smokey flavors paired with the sweet potatoes. This would make a great dinner for meatless Monday!

  7. I never would have thought to make chili with sweet potatoes!  What a great idea.  Love the smokey flavor!

  8. I love sweet potatoes and love beans and anything smoky and spicy! I would have gone to town on this! And boy, you certainly have your work cut out for you at EVERY meal with all those preferences of your family members! Dinner at my house goes like…this is what I made for the blog today, here eat it, and hope you enjoy it because that’s dinner 🙂

  9. This looks and sounds awesome! I’m one of the least picky eaters ever, too… My husband was ridiculously picky when I met him, but he’s has come SO far since. I’m definitely afraid I’ll have picky kids! It’s great to hear that everyone loved this 🙂

  10. Love crockpot recipes! And sweet potatoes. This looks fabulous AND healthy. My husband and youngest son are both picky eaters. Drives me crazy. My older son and I….not picky. I may just make this for the two of us!
