Hearty + Flavorful Sweet Potato Chili Recipe Is Oh-So Satisfying

Whether you follow a plant-based diet or just like to skip meat occasionally, our sweet potato chili recipe has just what you’re looking for. Using diced sweet potatoes in place of ground beef, this delicious and hearty dish packs some surprising health benefits. For starters, sweet potatoes help steady and even lower blood sugar levels because of the naturally occurring resistant starches they contain. Second, the spuds lower insulin, which can help burn fat. And finally, sweet potatoes contain several nutrients that slow digestion, keeping you feeling full longer than most foods. 

The superfood works its flavorful magic in this dish, making it just as crave-worthy as it is good for you. Our taste-boosting secret? We toss the sweet potatoes in liquid from canned beans to add natural earthy flavor during the roasting process. Give this recipe a try and leave us a comment below.
