Roasted Sweet Potato and Black Bean Chili


Roasted Sweet Potato and Black Bean Chili | Cooking Classy

Where did summer go? No complaints here though because I always look forward to fall and all the stunning colors that come with – and of course all warm bowls soup, the caramel apples, the pumpkin baked everything and the hot cider. Each of those are a must this soon-to-be time of year. Another must are sweet potatoes cooked in many forms and I’m so glad I’ve finally, finally got around to making a sweet potato chili. On occasion I’ll eat the classic beef chili in sweet potatoes and I’ve always said I’ll try actually adding them to a chili but it’s one of those things I’d just keep forgetting about, until now! All I can say is it’s about time I finally tried it because I’m totally in love with this ever-so-comforting, hearty and healthy sweet potato take on chili!

It is packed with all sorts of goodness and the topping options are limitless (it’s kind of like loading up a taco). You may be thinking there’s no way this meatless chili could be near as good as a meat filled chili, but oh how it is! Trust me you wont even miss the meat. It’s brimming with flavor and it’s something you can feel great about eating. Now that’s a total win in my book! The officially first day of fall may still be weeks away but welcome it early this week with this delicious Roasted Sweet Potato and Black Bean Chili! Read more »
