Sweet Potato Chili

This chunky sweet potato chili from “Whole and Heavenly Oven” is unbelievably warm and comforting, just perfect for a cold winters night.  It’s quick and easy, plus you’ll have enough left over for lunch tomorrow!  Serve piping hot with some tasty cornbread on the side – Yum ! 

Make it vegetarian by leaving out the ground turkey and increasing the amount of black beans!
