Sweet Potato Chili

Who doesn’t love a warm bowl of delicious chili? Perfect for tailgating, family gatherings, or an easy weeknight meal, chili is a great way to please just about anyone. Made with festive, fall-inspired flavors, like sweet potatoes and cinnamon, this zippy, and not overly spicy, chili is delicious garnished with a dollop of plain Greek yogurt, shredded cheese, crushed tortilla chips, or creamy, diced avocado.
