Smoky Black Bean & Sweet Potato Chili

Can you tell that I LOVE Chili?!?
This is the 3rd kind of Chili recipe that I've added to this blog.

Chili is a big comfort food for me.  
It's hearty, filling, spicy and very flavorful.

The best part about this chili is the sweet potatoes!
It adds a bit of sweetness to every smoky bite.
There's also a bit of chocolate...which is beyond Brilliant!

I'm in love!

Also, It's meatless.  So if you're looking for vegetarian dishes, I highly recommend this dish!

It took me no time to make this soup.
It was very easy and fast to make!

You may also put all the ingredients in a crockpot and cook on low for 8 hours
 if you'd like to save even more time.  I didn't work that into my schedule and cooked it
all at once but still it came out perfectly!
