Paleo Sweet Potato Chili Recipe

Paleo Sweet Potato Chili Recipe #paleo #recipe

If you’ve never had sweet potato chili, you are missing out! The subtle sweetness of the sweet potatoes married with the delicious earthy spices makes the perfect combination.

And it is ready in about 30 minutes. Of course, it tastes better the longer that you let it simmer, and it is out of this world delicious the next day.

But I never have enough willpower to resist eating it as soon as the sweet potatoes are soft. (Here’s a tip – cut them really small for faster cooking.)

Also, the recipe tastes just as delicious with ground turkey instead of ground beef. 

And it is easy to double, which you’ll want to do because it’ll definitely be a hot with your entire family.

And no one will miss the beans!
