Sweet Potato and Bean Veggie Chili

This vegetarian chili is anything but boring, and it’s just as hearty as one made with meat – you won’t miss the beef at all. It has a slightly sweet flavor profile, which comes naturally from the sweet potatoes. If you want more heat in this chili, leave the seeds in one of the jalapeños – I find this adds a nice balance of spice.
